   Bonita enjoyed tending to her flower garden, cooking and she loved being with her family, especially the many trips she took to Texas to see her grandchildren.  Bonita's favorite time of year was Christmas. She loved shopping, wrapping presents and making christmas candy and the many hundreds of christmas cookies she baked for family and friends. She was always willing to give of her time to help others and for telling others that they "earned a star in their crown". Bonita lived her life in a way that she has many stars in her crown.

   Bonita devoted her life to raising and caring for her family and also had worked as a caregiver and sitter for Sunset Supportive Services for many years.

Miller of Camp Point, IL; and many loving nieces, nephews.
When she married her husband, Eric, Bonita gained a second family that she loved very much along with her own sisters in law, brother in law; and a very dear friend, Ellen McIntyre and her children, Sarah and Brian.

   Mrs. Rodberg was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Eric; and two brothers, Lloyd Lewis and Donald Lewis.

I have nothing but fond memories of Bonita created during the short periods she was present in my life. She was always kind and nurturing. I pray that God wraps his loving arms around all of you, family and friends, and comforts you as only He can. May you find peace in His love, your love, and the wonderful memories you hold in your hearts.
