Bonna Moller, a longtime resident of the Lower Valley, passed away peacefully in her sleep on the morning of February 1 at Life Care Center of Kennewick, in the Tri-Cities. Born on January 14, 1928, in Heber Springs, Arkansas, Bonna was the second of eleven children on her farm family. Bonna’s early life brought her to Richland in the 1940s, where she and her father contributed to the construction efforts at Hanford. It was in Richland where she met and married Jack Quinn, a local radio and television personality, in 1949. Bonna and Jack welcomed their son Mark into the world in 1952. They then moved to Grandview in 1956, where they built and operated radio station KARY.
Bonna worked in varied occupations in her career: Among them, a bookkeeper for Bill Vance Tire Town, the Grandview School District and as a bank teller with Grandview Security Bank. She and Jack were founding members of the Lower Valley Musical Comedy Company. Bonna enjoyed many hours of show practice with her friends and then a late dinner at Hill’s Broiler or the Golden Pheasant to relax. After Jack’s death, she moved to Federal Way, Washington, to care for Quinn’s foster mother while working at Washington Mutual Bank. There, she met Fred Moller, whom she later married. The couple moved to Ryderwood, Wash., and soon began traveling in the United States and abroad. Fred’s death several years later brought her back to Grandview.
Bonna’s travels unearthed her passion for exploration and discovery. This zest for life was also evident in all her professional and personal endeavors. Her legacy is carried on by her loving family, including her son Mark, daughter-in-law Anita, grandsons Samuel Sundet, Scott Quinn, and Conor Laffey, and granddaughters Kelsey Myers, Joelle Dodd, Kameron Dale, and numerous great grandchildren, brother Max Allen and sisters Annette Martin, June Weaver and Janelle Colvin. She was preceded in death by grandson Brandon Sundet and sisters Joyce Vandiver, Betty Thompson, Imogene Richardson and Barbara Jones and brothers Kenny Allen and Elmer Dale Allen.
Bonna Moller's life was a testament to the impact one person can have on the lives of many. She will be deeply missed but remembered fondly for her civic contributions, her desire to travel, and the love she shared with her family and friends.
