Obituary

Obituary for Therese G. Bonfiglio

GREELEY, Colorado - Therese G. Bonfiglio died peacefully in her daughter’s home surrounded by family and friends. As a retired hospice nurse she never stopped giving to everyone she met.
Born July 8, 1927, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, she received her BSN in Nursing from Marquette University, Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1949. She married Ralph Guy Bonfiglio June 26, 1948 and started her career as Head Nurse in Pediatrics at St Joseph Hospital, Ann Arbor, Michigan where her husband completed his residency in Internal Medicine. Therese went on to become a Health Occupations Instructor in the Practical Nursing Program at Fox Valley Technical Institute, Appleton, Wisconsin. She taught Interpersonal Relationships and Fundamentals of Nursing. She also became Clinical Supervisor for the Medical Surgical Unit at Theda Clark Hospital, Neenah, Wisconsin where her husband was on staff as an Internal Medicine Specialist. In 1974 she relocated her family to the Pikes Peak region - Woodland Park and Colorado Springs, Colorado where she remained through her retirement. In 1984 she found her calling as a Hospice Nurse and continued Hospice Care through her retirement at age 75 at which time she continued to serve as a volunteer for the next 10 years. Throughout her life her spiritual impact and religious Catholic faith was felt in every community she came in contact with particularly Sacred Heart Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado where she volunteered endless hours on many levels.
She was honored by Marquette University, College of Nursing in Spring 2001 for: Helping the hand of the dying reach for the hand of God. The article is highlighted in the Marquette University Magazine Spring 2001 and included on the website: evergreenfuneralhome.org, username: 3874751; pw: 8bcf8.

I have Beautiful memories of gathering together not so much of “what we were doing” but of her beautiful spirit. She was one of the kindest, compassionate, her words were always laced with grace and wisdom whether written or spoken. She was the type of woman I would hope to aspire to be one day. She really didn’t pass away, she just went to her other home.

I was sad to read in the Courier that Therese had passed. I am sure God greeted his faithful servant with open arms and reunited her with her husband. I met Therese 38 years ago when I moved to Woodland Park through Our Lady of the Woods Church. I attended Renew scripture study and group in Woodland Park and there I met her daughter and son-in-law Paula and Sonny Strobl I was blessed with many years of friendship with the three of them. Therese was on the Intercessory Prayer Group along with myself for many years.

Paula, Sonny, Erin, Jacob and the entire Bonfiglio Family, please know your are in my thoughts and prayers. Your mom, grandma and great-grandma was an example to me by her deep spirituality. She will be sadly missed. Blessings to you all, Debbie Rocco
