Bonnie Hamersly, 70 Florida Resident Dies January 6

FLORIDA, Jan. 20 – Bonnie Lee Mann Hamersly, daughter of the late Edward Maurice Mann Sr. and Elsie Beatrice Norton Mann, devoted wife, beloved mother and Boggle champion, passed away Tuesday morning, January 6, 2009 at the age of 70. She was loved by many and will be missed by all.
