Bonnie Lee Beane Britt, age 88, passed away peacefully on Monday, November 9, 2020 in Paris, Texas. Blessed with good health most of her life, Bonnie had a recent hospitalization that resulted in her being moved to the Brentwood Terrace Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center in Paris to receive daily, intensive care. Unfortunately, despite her strong will to live, she was not able to overcome her illness. Bonnie had a love for life and family that made her the center of every family event. She will be sorely missed.
