Bonnie Lockerby

August 5, 1970 — April 18, 2024

ST. ALBANS - Bonnie L. Lockerby, age 53, passed away at her home in St. Albans.

Bonnie was born on August 5, 1970. She was adopted as an infant into the loving care of her parents Marjorie Greenia and Armand Lampman of Swanton, VT. With the assistance of the Lund Family Center, she was reunited with and graced with the love of her birth mother, Faye A Pidgeon, of Huntington, with whom she shared a beautiful connection.

Bonnie was a graduate of Missisquoi Valley Union High school in 1988. While working as a para-educator at the Swanton Central School, she pursued her dream of becoming a hairstylist, graduating from the Obrien Aveda Institute. She then worked for 24 years behind the chair in local salons; Guys Unisex, her in-home salon, Your Style by Bonnie, the Hairloft, and making house calls. Every client & colleague in those years becoming family.

Bonnie could often be found cheering on her children, their #1 fan, as they danced at a recital or stood at the plate on the diamond. If she wasn't cheering for them, she may have been known to throw them a good old "Mom stare." That wouldn't last long though, soon after she'd be telling them, "Love you bunches," as she sent them off to school with their fun shaped lunch containers filled with fancy little sandwiches made with cookie cutters. Bonnie loved making them home-cooked meals in the crockpot or firing up the grill on a summer night.

Summer, that was Bonnie's favorite season. Which worked perfectly for an annual family trip for her birthday to Lake George. It was there that the three of them learned to paddle board. A fun hobby they enjoyed together. If they couldn't make it to a beach during the summer, there was always room for a trip to the pool. Unless it should happen to rain , then it was time for a movie day on the couch... because who doesn't LOVE watching National Lampoons Christmas Vacation in July!!?? We know Bonnie did.

Bonnie loved her children, her Peanut and Sweet Pea more than anything.They will forever miss her and be thankful for all the fun and loving memories they made with her.

While "L" may be her middle initial, "Fun" was her middle name. From cruising in her Trans-Am, T-tops out of course, to cross-country motorcycle trips, or belting out her favorite 80's tunes

(especially Bon Jovi) at countless concerts, impromptu trips to Fenway Park, or simply a Sunday afternoon hike, there was no adventure that she would turn down. There was little Bonnie loved more than to feel the sand beneath her, always colorfully painted toes, and to hear the crash of the ocean waves, while making many lasting memories with her family on beach vacations down the east coast.

When her toes weren't in the sand, don't worry she had PLENTY of shoes to slide them into! Sandals, wedges and platforms as deep as her closet could go. She would throw on a pair of her sneakers to take a morning walk and enjoy the beauty of her surroundings. Bonnie had a true love for ALL animals. It wasn't out of the ordinary for her to move a turtle from the road to save it or rescue baby skunks (yes you read it right, skunks) from a ditch. If it was a living thing, she cared for it. Over the years she had everything from pet frogs to guinea pig, in addition to the "normal" cats and dogs.

Bonnie was a natural at caring for others, and she did so without any judgment. She was strong and true. Her perseverance carried her far. Bonnie's selfless nature, radiant smile, and infectious giggle will forever be missed by everyone she touched.

Bonnie is survived by her daughter Kellsie and her husband Adam Shedrick, her son Masyn Mercure, her brother Christopher Greenia, her birth mothers lifelong partner, Dave Thompson and his family, her Aunt Paula and Uncle Tom McMahon and their family, other family members, many loving friends, and a community who adored her.

Bonnie is predeceased by her mothers, Marjorie Greenia & Faye Pidgeon, father, Armand Lampman, her grandparents, many aunts and uncles, and of course beloved pets, Jovi & Zeb all of whom she loved dearly.

A celebration of life will be held in the summer sun, something Bonnie just couldn't get enough of, with family & close friends in attendance.
