Bonnie Marie Tripp


Bonnie Marie Tripp, 62, departed the Earth peacefully surrounded by love April 18, 2019. She was born in Bar Harbor, May 2, 1956, the daughter of Walter and Loretia Tripp.

Throughout her life, she cherished her daughter the most, her friends and family. For those who knew her, she always had a smile on her face, had a beautiful soul and would do anything for you. Bonnie treasured her vacations, whether they were at home kayaking on a lake, traveling to tropical places or visiting her sister in Florida. She loved the Red Sox and the thrill of going to Boston and Fenway Park.

Bonnie worked at The Jackson Laboratory for 44 years in several different jobs, ending with customer care service.

She is survived by her beautiful and loving daughter, Caresse Hanson, who took good care of her; mother, Loretia Tripp; sister, Brenda Kinter and husband, Bob; brother, Bruce Tripp and wife, Susan; nephews, Eric Parsons and Dale Lawrence and wife, Crystal; nieces, Melanie Mace and husband, Travis, and Jennica Piecuch and husband, Steve; great-nieces, Shelby and Courtney Lawrence, Samantha Mace and Mila Piecuch; great-nephew, Tysen Mace; great-great-nephews, Ryder Cyr, Hudson and Tucker Childs; many special friends. She was predeceased by her father; and her bestie Lynne Richardson.

In a bittersweet moment an Angel has found her wings. She will be greatly missed.

A celebration of life will be held 2 p.m., April 27, 2019, at Jordan-Fernald, 1139 Main St., Mount Desert.
