Bonnie Dreessen, was born on April 25, 1936, in Ortonville, Minnesota. She was the daughter of Henry and Edna (Price) Behrens. She lived her youth and attended school in Sibley, Iowa, where she graduated from high school.
She was united in marriage to Robert L. Dreessen of Sibley, Iowa, on April 22, 1957. They lived in Sibley, where they were happily married for 35 years. Robert passed away on August 7, 1992, after a long battle with cancer.
Bonnie was the President and bookkeeper of Dreessen Trucking Inc. of Sibley.
She was a member of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sibley, where she was active in the church as a member of the Women's Group, Altar Care, and Sunday School Teacher, for many years.
Bonnie was a very loving and caring person. Her greatest joy was being surrounded by her family and friends in her home. She enjoyed attending grandchildren's musical and sporting events. A special part of her life was her very dear friend, Don Truckenmiller. They enjoyed traveling and dining out.
She endured a long, hard, fight with cancer. On Saturday, October 8, 2005, at the Osceola Community Hospital in Sibley, she went to her heavenly home.
Those left to cherish her memories are her four children and their spouses: Brian and Patty Dreessen, Bradd and Susan Dreessen, Brenda and Don Hibbing, Brent and Nancy Dreessen, all of Sibley, IA; eight grandchildren; one sister: Ronelda (Charles) Voll of Phoenix, AZ; one brother: David Behrens of Pittsburgh, PA; special friend: Don Truckenmiller and his family; and many relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert, and her parents.
