Bonnie Jean Capanna, 79, of Wheaton, IL formerly of Masontown, PA, passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 11 after a short illness.

Bonnie was born on November 30, 1941 to Laurio Capanna and Elsie (Victor) Capanna in Masontown, PA. After graduating from Masontown High School in 1959, she went to school in Pittsburgh to become an airline attendant. Instead, she was introduced to computers setting her on a different career path.

Following graduation, she moved to the Chicago area where she worked in a variety of business administration jobs including bookkeeping, accounting, and payroll administration for companies throughout the Chicagoland area. Her career allowed her to put her keen attention to detail into practice.

She retired in 2011 after more than 55 years in business administration. After her retirement, Bonnie enjoyed movies, music, community activities, and visits with family. She especially enjoyed puzzles that kept her mind sharp until her recent illness.

Bonnie was predeceased by her parents. She is survived by her sisters, Lois (Frank) Kish of Glen Ellyn, IL, Carol Sue Glassie of Ft. Wayne, IN, and Gloria (Mark) Bowers of Point Marion, PA; six nieces and nephews; and eleven great nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, please send a memorial gift in her honor to the DuPage Care Center Foundation, 400 N. County Farm Road, Wheaton, IL 60187 or
