Bonita Mary (Gill) was born on September 27, 1939 in Mason City, IA to Steven and Vera (Fent) Gill. She grew up in Kensett, IA where she was active in many sports and activities. She graduated from Kensett High School as salutatorian. Bonita continued her education at Naeve Hospital in Albert Lea where she obtained her radiology technician certificate. She eventually became Chief X-Ray Technician and head of the hospital’s school where she taught many students.
On December 29, 1962, Bonita was united in marriage to Roger Kral in Albert Lea. The couple was blessed with two children: Tim and Colleen. Together, they would raise their family on a farm near Myrtle.
Bonita enjoyed many things. She enjoyed watching sports, and always had beautiful flowers and decorations around the family farm. She can be described as somebody who made you better just by being around her. Above anything else, she enjoyed spending time with her immediate and extended family. Bonita was most happy at her children’s and grandchildren’s events. Even though her family lived far away; she always seemed to be there for them. She rarely ever missed any event, and was certain to send a card to all of her grandchildren on any special occasions. Family meant the world to Bonita.
She was preceded in death by both parents, Steven and Vera Gill; mother and father in-law, Joseph (Mollie) Kral; and her siblings, Gary (Arlene) Gill, Patricia Fandel, and Rosalie Olson; and a brother in-law, Donald Kral.
She will be missed by her husband of 55 years, Roger Kral; children, Tim Kral and Colleen (Chuck) Miller; grandchildren, Chaz, Zoee, Joe, and Emma; a sister, Sandra (Wayne) Anderson; brother in-law, John Fandel; as well as many loving nieces, nephews, close cousins, and friends.
