Our mother, grandmother and sister, Bonnie M. Sagissor, 78, of Baker left this world after a hard fought battle with dementia. She passed away Feb. 3, 2014 at 10:55 p.m. with her daughter Corrine by her side as well as several kind professional and caring folks from Quality Personal Care in Baker. She has left this world and is now in the loving presence of Jesus, many friends and family members. She will be missed by many, but it is wonderful to think of her in Heaven, cooking once again and caring for her boys.
Due to Mom’s wishes, cremation has taken place and services will be held at a later date in Deborgia, Mont.
Mom was born to Kenneth and Beulah Parks in Wolf Point, Nov. 5, 1935. She was one of five children raised on a farm outside of Vida, going to a one room school and finishing high school in Wolf Point. After completing high school, Mom went to work at the Sherman Hotel and that is where she met a man by the name of George Sagissor II. May 5, 1955, Bonnie and George were married. They started their lives together in Poplar as well as starting their family of four children: Jean, Kenneth, Corrine, and Tom.
While raising her family, Mom worked for Anderson Lumber Yard and Poplar school system. In 1969, the Sagissor family went on a road trip that two years later would become their new home in Haugan. In Haugan, Mom finished raising us kids while working at the Lincolns Silver Dollar Gift Shop and after 25 years, Mom retired. During retirement, Mom and Dad did some traveling and fishing along the way until Dad left us in 2000. Shortly after that, Mom moved to Superior for a short time, then in 2004 to Plevna to be closer to Corrine. Mom was happy there, taking care of the youngest grandkids, making cookies, and enjoying the little farm house she had.
Bonnie is preceded in death by her husband, George W. Sagissor II; her two sons, Kenneth and Tom J. Sagissor; her parents; and two sisters, Audrey and Cleone.
She leaves behind two daughters, Corrine and Shawn Sander of Plevna and Jean and Jim Suman of Post Falls, Idaho; seven grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; two brothers, Don and Mary Ann Parks of Grass Range, and Evron Parks of Forks, Wash.; along with several nieces and nephews.
Bonnie’s family would like to thank the staff at Quality Personal Care in Baker for the loving and tender care they gave Mom over the past two years.
In lieu of donations to a memorial fund, Jean and Corrine ask that you do a kind act for someone in your community, such as plant a flower, bush or tree. Whatever the act, do it in Bonnie’s memory and know she is smiling because of it.
