Jane Manley Bonner, born August 16, 1935 in Eatonton, GA, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 30, 2024.
Visitation will be Sunday, February 11th at 1:00 pm, followed by her memorial service at 2:00 pm in the sanctuary of Lake Country Baptist Church located at 1249 Crooked Creek Road, Eatonton, with Pastor Pete Mattix officiating. There will be a private graveside service for the family afterwards.
Jane, an avid horse lover, outdoorswoman, naturalist and country girl, was born and raised in the Pea Ridge community of Putnam County. She graduated from Putnam County High School in 1953, where she was voted “Best Looking” by her Senior classmates. In her early years Jane ran Manley’s Pine Crest Shop on Scuffleboro Road where she made many friends in the Lake Sinclair community. She married Hubert Bonner, her “minnow man”, in 1985 and lived in Haddock, GA until his death in 2012. Jane returned to Eatonton where she enjoyed her final years living among her family.
Jane was preceded in death by her husband, Hubert Bonner, her parents Dorothy Gregory Manley and Emory Manley, and numerous very dear aunts, uncles and cousins.
She is survived by her sister, Martha Jo Manley Adams and her brother, Larry and Veda Manley, nieces and nephews Eddie Adams and Susan, Dorothy Adams Bowden and Jim, Kathy Adams Rainey and Mike, Greg Manley and Brenda, Robin Manley Rainey and Bill, Van Manley and Lisa, Leon Manley and Tammy, stepdaughter Betty Bonner Groves and Mike, stepson Henry Bonner and Cinda, many loving cousins and great & great-great nieces, nephews and step grandchildren, who affectionately called her “GiGi Pie”.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Lake Country Baptist Church youth group at the address above, as Jane loved supporting the youth in our Lake Country community.
