Bonita Higgins, 81, from Superior, a published poet who enjoyed reading a variety of poetry almost as much as composing it, passed away on Monday, Nov. 14, 2011.
Bonita was born Aug. 7, 1930, in Minneapolis, Minn. She grew up in Fargo, N.D. and moved to Superior as a young bride and mother.
Bonny could “wear many hats” as a mother of seven; grandmother of 19 and great-grandmother to five. She was a fantastic sister to her four brothers and two sisters.
Bonny loved to take long walks and enjoy the beauty of nature. Writing was her love. She would write poems, short stories and memoirs of her life and family. She enjoyed watching sports, especially the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and Milwaukee Brewers.
Bonny attended WITC and graduated with honors. She was employed by Douglas County before retiring.
