Remembering Bonnie Perkins

Bonnie Perkins began her four-day journey to the next world on Thursday, May 24, 2007. She passed away quickly and without pain from a wind-within, and will be missed by all. She has undoubtedly looked back upon those remaining behind, notably her husband, William Hardy; beloved children, Sunday Costell, Richard Perkins and Diamond Perkins; and grandchildren, Ashlay Perkins, Thorsten Costell and Alexander Perkins.


During her life Bonnie experienced the lands and peoples of Hawaii, Washington, New Mexico, Oregon and California. She was truly a jack-of-all-trades, having worked as a welder, truck driver, bookkeeper, banker, teacher, journalist and editor, and radio producer. Bonnie loved to write, especially in the science fiction genre. She was perhaps best known locally as the Lake County Law Librarian, and for her pioneering work with Lake County Community Radio particularly her original and well-respected show, “Censored History.”


She will be remembered as warm and compassionate, yet uncompromising in her belief that society and government should be held accountable for its inequities and untruths. She was a tireless advocate for the disenfranchised and powerless citizens of the world and for indigenous peoples everywhere.


All of us who were privileged to know her are comforted in the assurance that wherever her present journey ends, her smile and genuine commitment to truth, honor, and integrity will serve her well. We pray she will find an abundance of laughter and lasting contentment.


A service celebrating Bonnie’s life and ideas is being planned for the middle of July. Specifics as to time and place, and where donations may be sent, will be separately announced.
