September 26, 1930 --January 04, 2020

Bonnadine Bonnie E. (Rider) Stieve, 89, of Baraboo, left to be with God on Saturday, January 4, 2020 at St. Clare Meadows Care Center.

Bonnie, the daughter of Emma and Morgan Rider, was born on September 26, 1930 in Baraboo. She was united in marriage to Harold Bud Stieve on June 26, 1948 at St. Johns Lutheran Church in Baraboo. They were married for 56 years until Buds death on November 8, 2004. They had five children, and Bonnie was a full-time mother until her youngest started school. She then worked at the Industrial Coils for 25 years, where she became a group leader. She was a lifetime member of St. Johns Lutheran Church, Baraboo.

Bonnie grew up on a farm in Merrimac. After their marriage, Bud and Bonnie bought and farmed an adjoining property for almost twenty years. She had a passion for gardening and maintaining her beautiful blooming flower gardens. Bonnie enjoyed spending time with family, drives in the country, wildlife, bird watching, baking and puzzling.

She is survived by her five children: Linda Welch of Davidson, North Carolina; Terry Stieve of Farmington, Missouri; Sherryll (Dan Tuna) Frisch of Baraboo; Richard (Mary) Stieve of Baraboo; and Lisa (Mike) McDaniel of Salt Lake City, Utah; seven grandchildren: Christopher (Cathie), Brian (Samantha), Lindsey (Tyler), Geoffrey, Kaleigh, Lucas (Colleen) and Nola (Dave); and nine great-grandchildren, William, Caleb, Henry, Emma, Eloise, Margaux, Ellie, Cooper and Axel; other relatives and friends.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her husband Harold (Bud) Stieve, her parents, her brother Howard, and her son-in-law Kenneth Welch. Per Bonnies wishes, a private Christian burial will be held with a celebration of life at a later date. The Redlin Funeral Home in Baraboo is assisting the family.
