A memorial service was held Sept. 5 in Olympia. A reception followed at the Seath home.

Bonnie was born Aug. 21, 1938, in Dalton, Neb. Loving mother of three, doting grandmother of eight, Bonnie was an avid golfer and prolific seamstress who loved to host family gatherings and hand-make gifts for family and friends.

She was preceded in death in 1990 by husband Alfred S. Haldeman, and later, parents Kenneth and Leota Barr. Bonnie is survived by husband Robert Seath; children Terri Byers, Mike Haldeman and Denise Anderson; stepson Ryan Seath; eight grandchildren; brother Gerald Barr; and sister Joy Gradwohl.

Bonnie grew up the oldest of four children in Sidney, Neb. After graduating from Gurley High School in Gurley, Neb., in 1955, she went on to become an elementary school teacher for the Cheyenne County School District.

In the early 1960s, she moved to Seattle, where she met Alfred S. Haldeman, an aeronautical engineer at The Boeing Co. They married in 1963.

She spent several years in Huntsville, Ala., where Fred worked on NASA’s Apollo Project. They returned to Washington with three small children in 1970 and settled in Bellevue. Bonnie was active with her children in 4-H and also as a foster parent. In the early 1980s, she attended Bellevue Community College and went on to become a systems analyst for Boeing Computer Services.

After the death of her first husband, Bonnie met Robert Seath. They married and moved to Everett in 1992. They moved to Bellevue after Bonnie retired from Boeing in 1993.

In 2003, they moved to Olympia, where they became active members of Indian Summer Golf & Country Club. In 2006, they realized their dream of year-round golf, becoming winter residents of Sun City West, Ariz.
