Patricia "Bonnie" Fallon died Nov. 29, 2001, in Juneau of cancer.
Born May 19, 1939, in Green Bay, Wis., Fallon lived most of her life in California. She moved to Juneau in 1993 upon retiring from McDonnell Douglas.
She loved fishing, kids and animals, and living the simple life in her Airstream trailer. Her friends remember that "she'd give you the shirt off her back, then buy you another one more just for the heck of it. She was a second mother to all children, never having any of her own."
She was preceded in death by her grandmother Ivy Ilene Dolan, brother Davey Fero and father David Fero.
She is survived by her ex-husband Donald Fallon, Las Vegas, Nev.; mother Geri Lires, Auke Bay; sister Jud Fero Vickell and her husband Bruce, Auke Bay; Diane Vickell, Auke Bay; uncle Kenny Andrews, Las Vegas, Nev.; aunt June Christensen, California; nephews Davey Fero and Mitchell Helberg, Hawaii, and Mike Cooper, Seattle; nieces Julie and Valarie Fero, Hawaii, and Laura Fero and Holidae Caulfield, California; many great-nephews and great-nieces in Hawaii and Seattle; and many friends.
A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. Dec. 15 at St. Brendan's Episcopal Church on Mendenhall Loop Road.
