Bonnie J. Raisch, 81, of West College Corner died Thursday, June 9, 2022, surrounded by her loving family.

Bonnie was born to James A. and Mildred Potter Cole on

February 17, 1941, in Cincinnati, Ohio. She graduated from McNicholas High School in 1959 and received a Bachelor's degree from Miami University in 1963. Immediately upon graduation, Bonnie taught in the Cincinnati area until 1968 and then at Hamilton Buchanan Elementary until her retirement in 1995. Bonnie married L. Richard Raisch on May 17, 1979, in Liberty, Indiana, and together they shared forty-three years of wonderful times, including several cross-country

motorcycle rides, sharing farm duties and caring for their horses. Bonnie was an active member of St. Mary's Catholic Church, College Corner Community Club, F.U.N. Club and the Butler County Retired Teachers Association. She was a selfless giver and lifelong blood donor, earning recognition for

donating her blood as often as they would let her. In addition, she was honored by McCullough-Hyde Hospital for

volunteering over five-thousand hours. When she wasn't

volunteering, Bonnie enjoyed playing golf (she was instrumental in organizing and managing the Women's Golf

League at Liberty Country Club), pickle ball and paddle tennis with her friends and was an avid snow skier. Bonnie had a heart of gold and she will be deeply missed by all who know and love her.
