Bonnie was born January 24, 1944, in Cleveland Ohio to Irene and Lester Riczinger. Bonnie enjoyed sharing stories of her childhood. She especially loved to talk about the time spent with her mother, father, and her sisters. Family was always important to her.

Bonnie was a clerical specialist and worked many different jobs in her career. She was a hard-working, dedicated and reliable employee.

Bonnie met the love of her life Jim Rico, in 1988. They fell in love and created a lifetime of loving memories. Jim’s family welcomed Bonnie with open arms and loved her as there own. She was admired by all for her strong will and her tough personality.

She is preceded in death by her mother and father Irene and Lester, and her sister Joyce Wallingford. She was survived by her husband Jim Rico, her close and loving friends Raymond and Jo Rico, her sisters Linda Moss, and Susanne Richards. Her kids Denise Rico, Tamera Thompson, Thomas, and (Ellen) Dahlenburg , Rex and (Tabitha) Mitchell. She will be greatly missed by her grandchildren Elias, Joy, Lexi, Corey, Erica, Nick, Austin, Colton, and Branson. Great grandchildren Eilley, Breck, and Henry.

Though her smile is gone forever and her hand we cannot touch, we cherish the loving sweet memories we have of our beloved Bonnie. Her memory is now a keepsake that will hold in our hearts forever. God now has her in his keeping and we know she is no longer suffering. She will be missed by all that knew her. Rest in peace, Bonnie Lee Rico.

Bonnie, I not only had a sister in law but a best friend. You were my sounding board and confidant and helped me to stay grounded. We could go months without seeing or talking to each other and could pick up right where we left off! October would be the last time we spoke and said, our "love you's" and "goodbye's." Life wasn't fair when it came to your health in your golden years. Thank you, Jim and family, for doing all that you did to take care of Bonnie. I was truly blessed to have a sister in law like you and will keep you in my heart until we meet again. I love you, Jo
