Bonita “Bonnie” Josephine Muhmel - Print this obit
Bonita “Bonnie” Josephine Muhmel was born October 31, 1934 to John & Erie Dvorak in Kaylor, SD. She married Lester Muhmel on June 5, 1952. To this union were born six children: Barbara DeJong, New Bern, NC; Lester-Butch (Annie) Muhmel, Las Vegas, NV; David (Melinda) Muhmel, Valley Springs, SD; Phyllis (Van) Bursell, Sioux Falls, SD; Kim (Peggy) Muhmel, Crofton, NE; and Patty (Tim) Friesen, Sioux Falls, SD.
Bonnie started her career being an at home Mom. All the kids friends were welcome and part of her family. Once the kids left home her & Lester ventured out exploring the countryside taking on odd jobs as needed. They then explored the country by over the road trucking. Retirement brought them to Custer, SD where they enjoyed the outdoor life of fishing & camping. Bonnie had a love of creating things through sewing, painting and wood work. After her and Lester retired they took their beautiful crafts to the shows all over the 4 state region. After Lester’s passing Bonnie moved back to Sioux Falls to be near her family. The last few years she was at Helping Hands Assisted Living playing every game possible & sewing quilts for hospice. One of the requirement when coming to visit Mom or bringing her back from an outing was to pickup a “mixed” cappuccino (and she always seemed to forget her money).
Bonnie passed away peacefully January 23, 2020 at Sanford USD Medical Center with her family by her side. Left to rejoice in her life are her children and their spouses, 16 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, nieces & nephews and a host of friends.
Receiving her into heaven along side Jesus are her husband Lester, son Butch, parents John & Erie, sister Shirley and brother John. Bonnie’s delight centered around her faith, family and friends.

Kelly Jean Ode - Print this obit
On Friday, January 3, 2020, Kelly Johnson-Ode, a loving mother , grandmother and sister, passed away at the age of 54. Kelly was born on November 17, 1965 in Sioux Falls. She lovingly raised three beautiful children, a daughter Jolene, and two sons Joseph and Matthew and was a mom to many friends along the way.
Kelly had a passion for planting. She really was one with the earth. If it was something that was to grow she was the one that would bring it to life. She also loved to bird watch, and she combined her two favorite hobbies to create extraordinary art. Her planting of various trees and the most beautiful flowers and the biggest fruitful gardens were much admired by her family and friends. She started to notice that her family would come around more often around harvest time. She was probably the only woman in the entire state of South Dakota who could grow the juiciest peaches you could ever sink your teeth into. She would help Jolene with her spring planting on Mother’s Day.
She was an avid music lover and her morning jam sessions, which may or may not have woken the neighbors, was enough to get you in the spirit of jamming out with the loudest “ WooHoo”.
She was known for her charm, her infectious smile, and her kind and compassionate spirit. She was one of Gods greatest gifts to all of us who knew and loved her. She had 5 grandchildren whom she adored and always let know that they were the most precious little people on this earth. In addition to her love of everything beautiful, she cherished her “dumb doggith” who we all know as DD. She found much peace while they would take walks together.
Her son, Joseph recently got her in to exercising and once she got going she would not stop. It was kind of their thing to keep each other motivated as he loves to physically train she wanted to prove to him how strong she truly was.
She felt like the coolest kid on the block when she hopped in her car and drove cross-country with DD to visit her little sister Karrie on a road trip to Eugene, Oregon. She got to take in the fresh air and become one with nature as she saw the west. She even went kayaking and whitewater rafting.
Kelly was a stubborn little turkey and when she got an idea in her head there was no changing her mind Especially when she knew that she was the expert like in gardening. Her famous family dish was pork cutlets and mushroom dinner, a meal that her own daughter has with her family quite frequently. If you knew Kelly, you knew she loved all things and she will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
Kelly is survived by her two children: Jolene (Jaime) Vasquez of Sioux City IA, Joseph (Michelle) Henry, of Sioux Falls SD; sisters: Kim Johnson-Krueger of Sioux Falls SD and Karrie Johnson of Eugene Oregon; brothers: Aaron Johnson of Rapid City SD and Justin Johnson of Sioux Falls SD, and her grandchildren: Ariyanna, Cruz, and Liliana Vasquez of Sioux City Ia, and Kennith and Kadence Rolfson of Sioux Falls SD. She was preceded in death by her mother, Jeanie, father, Glenn, her beautiful son, Matthew and her husband Bruce

She would dress as an old lady, white- faced with a scarf and gloves to hand out candy in her dark and spooky porch. At Christmas, she would create snowman families for her family and friends. Hours were spent making each snowman unique in some way. Her fireplace would be hung with stockings – all fourteen, plus one for Snoopy the Dog. She made Christmas in Sioux Falls on Prairie Avenue a beautiful of Wonderland for her family.

The third child of five Cavanaugh kids, Pat grew up on the farm befriending all kinds of animals. She was known for her patient and sweet demeanor, her ability to make anyone she encountered feel understood and valued, and her love for the Lord.
Graduating from Storm Lake St. Mary’s with the Class of 1966, Pat was well-liked by all. She went on to college at Mount Marty in Yankton, South Dakota, where she obtained her degree in 1970.

Connie Roberts - Print this obit
Constance “Connie” Joanne (Hanlon) Roberts passed away unexpectedly on December 1, 2019 in Naples, Florida. She was born July 11, 1948 to James and Beverly (Pedersen) Hanlon in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Her family moved to Sioux City, Iowa where she attended Blessed Sacrament Elementary School and graduated from Bishop Heelan Catholic High School in 1966.
After graduation, Connie attended the University of South Dakota where she followed in her mother’s footsteps as a member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority. It was here at USD where she met the love of her life, Jim Roberts, across a booth at the Varsity Pub. It was love at first sight and after eight months of dating they were engaged. They were united in marriage on July 27, 1968 at Blessed Sacrament Church in Sioux City, Iowa.
In early 1971, Jim went on active duty with the United States Army in Georgia. While Jim was in officer training there, they welcomed their first daughter, Lisa. In the fall of 1971, they were stationed in Berlin, Germany for three years. It was there they welcomed their first son, Brian and met their dear lifelong friends, Mike and Mary McGuinn. Following a one year assignment in Texas, they completed their family welcoming twins, Kevin and Katie. Upon discharge from the Army, they made their home in Minneapolis before moving to Sioux Falls, SD permanently in 1979.
Connie went on to become a strong advocate for deaf and hard of hearing children in both her personal and professional life upon learning that her youngest daughter, Katie, was deaf. She returned to complete her bachelor’s degree in special education by commuting to USD while raising their four children. Connie enjoyed working as an Outreach Consultant for the South Dakota School for the Deaf for 13 years where she cherished her time working with families. During these years, Connie was very passionate about the needs of deaf and hard of hearing children and was active in many organizations including being involved with the founding of the South Dakota Parent Connection organization and serving on the national board of directors for the American Society of Deaf Children. For several years, Connie traveled across the United States and was the keynote speaker at many local and national association meetings.
During her time in Sioux Falls, Connie was active in her church as well as many other organizations. She was a founding member of St Michael Parish and she and Jim were inaugural little parish leader members. Another passion of hers was watching her sons grow up playing hockey. During this time, she became very involved in the Sioux Falls Youth Hockey Association and served on many committees including one term as the president of the association.
Connie was well known for her artistic talents and would tackle any new endeavor that caught her eye including oil painting, reupholstering furniture, china painting, water color painting, calligraphy, ceramics, stained glass, mosaics, making calendars and purses, creating artistic magnets, sewing Halloween costumes for the grandkids, and embroidering very special Christmas stockings for each of her eleven grandchildren. She was happy when she was creating. She worked for several years for Sioux Falls Stained Glass and in her later years loved creating displays for the downtown boutique, Sticks and Steel. One of her greatest joys was working on custom stained glass and mosaic projects for numerous individuals and businesses. She also loved reading, watching crime shows, doing crossword puzzles, playing “Words with Friends”, Mahjong and cards.
Connie’s greatest love and joy was her family. She treasured the time spent with them and created so many special memories that will be cherished forever. Time with her grandchildren was precious. She was their number one fan on the bench whether it be watching football, hockey, lacrosse, softball, soccer, basketball, volleyball games or swim meets. She was the loudest cheerleader and always had favorite snacks ready for them after the game. She loved getting nails done together at the salon, grabbing coffee, watching a “Law and Order” marathon on the couch, doing SnapChat filters, giving backrubs, and making memories together in 1:1 “special nights”. Perhaps some of her fondest memories were of her and Jim taking each grandchild on their own special trip the year they turned 10; which included trips to Seattle, Kansas City, New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego, Miami and Orlando. Although Connie will be missed on the upcoming trips for the four younger grandchildren, we know she will be there in spirit and love. She was the one who taught her grandchildren to climb down steps as toddlers and to swim at a young age in her backyard pool. She loved her grandchildren deeply and they were such a source of pride and joy in her life. Connie was blessed with amazing siblings and in-laws and enjoyed many special memories including nights with her brothers at the Thirsty Duck, “robe weekends” with her sister-in-law and brother-in-law, countless Hanlon Family reunions, the family tradition of “Horses Ass Award” ceremonies, annual “sisters weekends”, and many gatherings with nieces and nephews. Anyone who knew Connie, knew she was the “life of the party” who loved to laugh, to dance, to raise a glass of wine and be the last one to leave.
Upon Jim’s retirement in 2014, Connie and Jim spent their winter months in Naples, Florida where they reunited with their lifelong friends and enjoyed the companionship of many new ones. They enjoyed their days golfing, dancing, spending time with friends going out to dinner, spending quiet time together reading and enjoying a glass of wine during sunsets on the beach. Although this time was cut far too short, it was some of their richest years together. Connie and Jim loved traveling and enjoyed many trips and cruises together with friends and family including many years of chasing their granddaughters playing softball across the country with the South Dakota Renegades, a very special group of people.
Grateful for having shared her life is her husband of 51 years: Jim, Sioux Falls; daughter: Lisa (Phil) Loving, Sioux Falls; sons: Brian (Shawna) Roberts, Corning, IA, Kevin (Hallie) Roberts, Victoria, MN; and daughter: Katie (Kris) Hopkins Roberts, Seattle, WA; grandchildren: Hannah, Chloe, Sadie and Jesse Loving, Duncan, Jacob, Brody, Tyler, Madyson and Isabella Roberts, and Fitzgerald Hopkins Roberts; siblings: Julie (Larry) Armiger, Omaha, NE; Mike Hanlon, Sioux Falls, Mary (Tommy) Thompson, LeMars, IA, Pat (Rhonda) Hanlon, Sioux Falls, Tom (Lisa) Hanlon, Sioux Falls; Kevin (Tracy) Hanlon, Sioux Falls and Betsy (Jeff) McIntyre, Sioux Falls; her in-laws: Kay (Kerry) Kasulka, Sioux Falls; Diane (Bill) Tschetter, Rapid City, SD; and Tom (Linda) Roberts, Sioux Falls; special friends: Mike and Mary McGuinn, Naples, FL; and numerous nephews and nieces.

Margaret "Marnee" Cogley Bell - Print this obit
Margaret "Marnee" Cogley Bell passed away peacefully at Vienna Village in Pfafftown, NC on December 2, 2019. She was born December 19, 1924 to John M. and Grace G. Cogley in Sioux Falls, SD.
Marnee enjoyed playing the piano and organ. Her family and friends loved her many "concerts" throughout the years. A romantic at heart, she played mostly love songs. She also enjoyed ballet and dance. Her father sold insurance but passed away tragically when she was 11 years old. After his passing, her mother became a U.S. Marshall, transporting female prisoners.
At St. Mary's High School, Marnee met John H. Bell, who was the school's football star and several years later they married. Soon after she stayed home to raise their two children. They bred and raised German Shepherds when the children were young and owned many dogs the rest of their lives. She enjoyed volunteering as a "candy-striper" at hospitals for many years. During John's military career, the family lived in FL, CA, New Orleans, IL, PA and VA. When he retired, they moved to a farm in Bohannon, VA. She enjoyed the early mornings sitting on the back porch watching the boats as she drank her first coffee of the day. They were members of St. Francis de Sales Church in Mathews, VA. Marnee felt that the days of raising puppies prepared her for raising calves, sheep, goats, and horses at the farm. She was an active member of a bridge club, a "stitch" group, the Women's Club and the DAR. She was a talented "garnisher", making everything lovely. She also worked election sites and served as the secretary for the local volunteer rescue squad. A very creative and talented "stitcher", she knit, did needlepoint, counted cross-stitch and stencil. She was a beloved and fun wife, mother/in-law, Nanu and friend!
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband John of 72 years; her daughter Barbara Ann Bell and sister Katherine C. Christenson.
Marnee is survived by her son: John H. Bell (Ann); two grandchildren: Audrey B. Smith (Brian) and David N. Bell (Jessica); and eight great-grandchildren: Hannah Smith, Sarah Beth Smith, Jacob Smith, Caleb Smith, Lillie Bell, "AJ" Bell, Harper Bell and Emerson Bell; and two nieces: Catherine Telarico and Mary Christenson.
