Asheville- Bonnie Lou Behnke Reece, age 68, was carried home by the angels to her eternal Heavenly home on Friday, September 10, 2021.

Bonnie was born September 20, 1952 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Louis Edwin Behnke and the late Ina Mae Mault Behnke. She had made her home in Asheville for the past 45 years and Bonnie was a devoted homemaker, always busy taking care of her family and her home.
