Obituary of Bonita Clara Dufford
Bonita C. Dufford
Comstock, NY – Bonita C. "Bonnie" Dufford passed away on January 30, 2019 at Albany Medical Center following a long illness.
Bonnie was born on August 6, 1948 in Rutland, Vermont the daughter of the late Floyd and Clara (Tobin) Casey.
She graduated from Granville High School. She spent many years as a teaching assistant at the Fort Ann School where she made a positive impact on many students.
Her family meant the world to her. She never missed a chance to support her children and grandchildren at every event in their lives, both during their childhood and as adults.
Bonnie had a smile that was contagious. She was a kind, loving and fun person. She enjoyed making fleece blankets and giving them as gifts to bring warmth and cheer into the lives of others.
She will forever be remembered for her famous chocolate cakes with peanut butter frosting which she literally made for everyone for many occasions. Bonnie always loved cardinals. There is a belief that a cardinal is representative of a loved one who has passed. When you see one, it means they are visiting you. They usually show up when you need them most or miss them. They also make an appearance during time of celebration. I'm sure there will be many cardinal sightings in her family's future.
Bonnie was predeceased by her parents and 10 of her siblings: Mary Wood, Richard, Lloyd, Claude, Adrian, Floyd "Jr.", Stanley and Doug Casey, Doris Carrera and Linda Sloan. She is survived by her loving and devoted husband of 49 years, David Dufford, Sr. Left behind to cherish her memory are her children Jodi Green (Stanley), of Gansevoort, NY, David Jr. (Sarah Kile), of Gansevoort, NY, and Eric Dufford (Anna), of Glens Falls, NY. She was blessed with three grandchildren: Elyse Green, Grayden and Natalie Dufford. Her surviving siblings are Betty Perkins, of Greenwich, NY, and Lula Hoard, of Manchester, VT. She is also survived by her cherished dog, Ginger.
