Bonnie Chersinoff (nee Price)


May 20, 1961 ~ February 23, 2015

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we announce the passing of our dear Bonnie at 3:37am Feb 23rd after a 2 month battle with liver disease.

Bonnie was born in Powell River moving to Comox in grade 6, where she lived her life to the fullest.

Family and friends meant the world to Bonnie.

She will be sadly missed by her husband Dax, son Wil, the apple of her eye, her Mom Lorraine, siblings Larry and Val(Kevin), sister-in-laws Julan and Nadine along with many aunts, uncles, nieces, cousins and dear friends (you know who you are!) Special thanks to Uncle Frank and Lil for your support, cousin Jamie (Bon’s Guardian Angel) and cousin Cathy for all of the visits while Bon was in VGH.

Bonnie loved to spend her days as Front Store Manager at the Medicine Shoppe in Comox. Thank you to Tim and Suzie Cowan and her Medicine Shoppe family for all of the love and support.

Bonnie was born with a rare allergy to the sun (porphyria). She enjoyed indoor activities such as trips to Reno or Vegas. She loved her Timmie’s French Vanilla and was known to swing by Chances to win a few bucks! Wil and Bon attended Tae Kwan Do together.

Bonnie was always available to help anyone in need. She organized fundraising for charities including volunteering with Val at Relay for Life.

Her passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts, but we know she is up hanging out with Popsie and all of her loved ones that have passed before her.

We love you Bon!

So sorry to hear about 3:37,

How fitting it is that it does rhyme with heaven.

The machines are all off,

The suffering stops,

She now rises up to be with her Pops!

So don’t shed more tears,

Don’t dwell on the strife.

Do not mourn the passing,

Celebrate the Life!


In lieu of flowers, a Trust Fund for Wil has been established at the Scotiabank in Comox.

A celebration of Bonnie’s life will follow at a later date.
