Bonita (Bonnie) Marie Elsing (Anderson) February 14, 1955 - April 16, 2021
Born and raised in Monona, lived in Poynette raising a family for many years before returning to Madison. Loved family, friends, traveling (on 2, 3, and 4 wheels), cooking, and gardening. After retiring in 2019, her and Darrell settled in a home outside of Montello on the Crooked River for the summers and a home in Tucson for the winters.
Survived by her son, Shaun (Brenda) Elsing, daughter Sherri (Aaron) Gross, grandchildren Cody and Taylor Elsing, Carly and Logan Gross, and her significant other of 18+ years Darrell Hollis and his family. Also survived by her sisters Betty (Josh) Diehm and Bev Gillogly, a handful of nieces and nephews, and her dear friends. Preceded in death by her parents, Robert and Alma Anderson, and brother-in-law Barry Gillogly.
An open house celebration of life will be held on May 22, 2021 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM at their Montello residence (Please email: email@example.com for service location). In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to UW Carbone Cancer Center in Madison, WI or Banner University Cancer Center in Tucson, AZ.
We would like to thank all of the amazing staff at Banner Medical Center for their compassionate care of our mother during her stay. Though she fought a quick battle, she was strong, humble, and gracious. Life can change in an instant, make sure to look around every day and notice the small blessings, they are certainly there...
