Bonnie Yvette Marsh
Bonnie Yvette Marsh, 72, of Beaumont, passed away on Wednesday January 11, 2023. Bonnie was born on June 15, 1950, to Bonnie Belle Prejean and William Jackson DuBose. She spent her early years growing up in the Beaumont area. Bonnie contracted Polio at the age of 2 but that never stopped her from living life.
One of her favorite pastimes was a road trip during the day or at midnight. She loved to ride the ferry or sit on beach. She was told by many, many of her friends that she should have been a tugboat captain because she would go to river front park and watch for ships. She would take pictures of each ship, she would look up the history and the origin of the ship and she would then track it to its destination
After graduating from Bishop Byrne high school, she went to Delgado University before going to study art at Northwestern State University, where she obtained a bachelor’s degree in fine arts.
Bonnie loved spending time with her family and friends, as well as her animals. She was known for being passionate about many things and had so many talents. Bonnie loved to crochet a variety of one-of-a-kind items that varied from blankets to baby clothing and stuffed animals. If she wasn’t busy crocheting, she was showing off her artistic abilities. Charcoal drawings and Pastel paintings were a few of her favorites.
Bonnie always had a love for an adventure. She loved to travel the world, a few of her favorite places are Hawaii, Alaska, and anywhere with a body of water. She would refer to it as her “water therapy”. Even a good thunderstorm was considered her water therapy. While traveling Bonnie loved to learn of new cultures and was always up for trying new foods. Regardless of where she was, as long as she was traveling with her children, she was happy.
Bonnie was a giving, caring, and selfless soul. She loved her family more than anyone could imagine. She adored her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, her brother, and sisters. She fought her battle of life to the very end and held on as long as she could. We would all agree and say that she won.
Survivors include her children, Jack Marsh of Houston; Mike Marsh and his partner, Geovanni Martinez, of Beaumont; and Danielle Schell and her husband, Christopher, of Richmond; grandbabies, Rebekah Gonzalez and her husband, Jeremy; Christian Miciotto, Matthew Miciotto, Lauren Baxter and her husband, John Kyle, and Natalee Schell; great-grandbabies, Ryan, Avery, Eleanor “Ellie”, Carter, and Julia; siblings, Jackie Benoit, Gigi Bock, and Jené DuBose; dogs, Cooper, Phoebe, and Blanche; and numerous extended family members, friends, and loved ones through the years.
