Bonnie Marie Line


Bonnie M. Line, age 56, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family on December 15, 2020 at home in Staples. Funeral services were held at 4PM on Saturday, December 19, 2020 at Verndale Family Life Church in Verndale. Serviced are entrusted to the Brenny Family Funeral Chapel-Staples.

Bonnie was born on November 3, 1964 in Staples to Jim and Barb (Ziegler) Dewald. On July 12, 1991 she married the love of her life Rich Line in Sisseton, SD. They raised their daughters in Staples, MN where the couple owned and operated Line Electric with Bonnie keeping books and payroll. In 1997 the couple partnering with Lonnie and Rena Dewald purchased the Ace Bar, and after remodeling both floors opened the door to Dew-Lin’s Sports Lounge. Bonnie’s sense of humor and infectious laugh made her the life of the party, and her compassion, generosity, and ability to accept people as they are made her a lifetime friend to many who walked through Dew-Lin’s doors until it was sold in 2004. Her warrior spirit and strength inspired many as she overcame multiple illnesses and surgeries through the years. Bonnie enjoyed traveling, trips to the casino, pulling pull tabs, and riding motorcycle especially for Gracie’s run. Bonnie’s heart belonged to her family and her idea of the perfect day was laughing with her daughters, hugging her grandkids, and sharing a meal with her husband and son in-laws after the boys prepared a feast. Bonnie was a great friend, a loving wife, a best friend to her girls, and a doting Grandma to her grandkids; she will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Bonnie is survived by her husband, Rich of Staples; daughters Sarah (Tony) Eisenmenger of Crosby, Amanda (Marcus) Vernon of Sartell, Rebecca (Tyler) Jackson of St. Stephen; mother, Barb Dewald of Browerville; brothers Leroy (Pam) Dewald, Larry Dewald, Lonnie (Rena) Dewald; grandchildren, Jackie, Oliviah, Kyle, Ashton, Isabel, Levi, Jackie, Oliviah, Kyle, Ashton, Isabel, Levi, Leandra, Eli; and many nieces, nephews, and friends. She was preceded in death by her father Jim; granddaughter Grace Becker; and nephew Michael Dewald.

In lieu of flowers memorial donations are preferred to the Grace Becker Foundation, which was near and dear to Bonnie’s heart.
