Bonnie Lyons, 68, of Middletown, Rhode Island, passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 5 in Providence. Formerly of Pawtucket, she is the mother of Monique Graham and Dathon Lyons.

Bonnie was born in Wareham, the daughter of Napoleon Jesus and Louise (Almeida) Jesus. She graduated from Wareham High School and attended Secretarial School. Upon beginning her family, she moved to California and lived on the west coast for eight years. She then worked for Delta Airlines in Atlanta for several years before returning to her roots in New England. For many years she lived in Pawtucket until moving to Middletown more recently, to be closer to her beloved grandson Jacob. She attended services at the Church of the Nazarene and Our Lady of Assumption Church in New Bedford for many years, and enjoyed quiet time at home, crocheting in front of her favorite shows on television. She was often a private and independent person, but she will be dearly missed by some close friends.

She is survived by her daughter Monique Graham and her husband Matt Graham of Newport, her son Dathon Lyons of Johnston, Rhode Island, and her grandson Jacob. Bonnie is also survived by her siblings Vivian Monteiro, Robert Jesus, Timothy Jesus, and Tony Jesus, her aunt Dorothy Britto of Boston, her godmother Lulu Gonsalves of Plymouth, and cousin Pearl Barrows of Wareham. She will be dearly missed by many loved ones.

She was preceded in death by a sister Pamela Faria and her parents. Funeral services will be private.
