Born: 01/24/1971 Passed:

Bonnie M. (Merinar) Deaton passed away November 12th, 2020 after a seven-year long battle with breast cancer. She left this earth surrounded by love in her daughters’ home.

A life-long resident of Stark County, she enjoyed gardening, writing, trying and cooking new meals, and traveling with her friend Helen. She loved her children and grandchildren more than anything. She always looked forward to her ‘Friday night dinners’ with her family.

She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law Kendra and Paul Windemuth, her grandchildren Novah and Evelyn Windemuth, her son Anthony Deaton, sisters Brenda Baker, Janice Palmer (Baker), stepsister Christina Macksyn, stepbrother John Macksyn, and her beloved cat ‘Hammy’.

Preceding her in death are her stepfather and her mother John and Bonnie Macksyn, sister Patricia Angione, brother Gerald Baker, and stepbrother Brian Macksyn.

Bonnie’s family would like to thank the staff of Absolute Hospice for their compassion, and Bonnie’s dearest friends Helen, Renee, and Donna for their guidance and support.

In keeping with her wishes, no public services are planned. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in Bonnie’s name to the American Cancer Society to further their research in the fight against cancer. Condolences can be shared with her family online at

    Bonnie and I met when we were going through breast cancer. We got very close. She was a wonderful friend. We went to dinner a lot before we would go to our survivorship meetings. I will miss her for the rest of my life but with the hope of seeing her again in heaven where I know she is. Thank you Kendra for allowing me to say goodbye to her. Donna Brokaw
