Obituary of Bonita Morse

Underhill, VT. - Bonita "Bonnie" June (Cahoon) Morse 6/1/1946 to 1/25/2018

Bonnie is the daughter of Paul and Elsie (Fuller) Cahoon. Bonnie lived her early life in Walden, VT on the family farms.  She attended a one-room school in Walden for her elementary education and graduated from Danville High School in 1964 and then graduated from Champlain College in 1966.  Following her graduation she was employed at IBM until 1969.  In 1967 she married Alan Morse in Danville, VT and they then moved together to Colchester and then Underhill where they have resided for the past forty-four years.  At a time prior to cell phones and GPS she and family members drove to Alaska for a traveling vacation.  In 2000 Bonnie and her family vacationed in Scotland where she visited her ancestral castle which was always a high light of her travels.  She spent many years having a daycare in her home.  She also worked in the offices of Brown's River Middle School and Clark's Truck Center. Upon retirement in 2004 Bonnie and Alan began spending winters traveling around Florida in their RV and eventually purchased a winter home in Ocala.  Bonnie's health declined due to several strokes and eventually they were unable to continue traveling.   In 2017 they celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. She enjoyed reading and gardening, baking, movies, dancing and all kinds of music.  Bonnie is survived by her husband Alan, their son Loni and his wife Amy Morse of Jericho, VT, their daughter Loren and her husband Gregory LaBelle of Peabody, MA, and their daughter Lynne and her husband Daryll Kemp of Underhill, VT.  She also leaves five very special grandchildren: Ryan and Justin Morse, Mae and Jack LaBelle and Easton Kemp.  She also leaves her siblings: Myrna and her husband Mike Lawson of Cabot, VT, Pauline Prevost of Walden, VT and Stacy and his wife Donna Cahoon of St. Johnsbury, VT.  Her ten nieces and nephews, and their children, were all special people to her as well as the many cousins of her parent's relatives. On the Morse side of her family she leaves her sister-in-law Ginnie Morse of Danville, VT.

A Celebration of her life will be held at the Jericho United Methodist Church on Saturday February 3, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. Visiting hours will be held at the Minor Funeral Home in Milton, VT on Friday February 2, 2018 from 4:00-7:00 p.m.
