Bonné Morgan Mahler left her earthly home on October 9, 2023. She was born in Danville, VA to James Powell Morgan and Dean Luther Morgan on July 27, 1948. Bonne’ was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, George Lewis Mahler; her parents, James Powell Morgan and Dean Luther Morgan.

Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Jonathan, Leah Mahler Bowles (Kevin), one grandson Carter Lane Bowles, and one brother, Rev. James P. Morgan Jr. (Mary Dale). Bonne’ graduated from East Carolina University with degrees in speech and drama.  In her early career she taught Children’s Theatre at Averett University in Danville, VA and at Paul D. Camp Community College in Franklin, VA. She was also an actress and director with the Franklin Little Theatre. Coming to Richmond, she worked at the Richmond Times Dispatch and Media General for 27 years in Human Resources where she made special lifelong friends especially Debi Stonecipher and Alice Rodriguez. Upon retirement she taught for 5 years as a substitute teacher at Amelia County Schools and she taught Sunday School for a number of years. Bonné was infamously known as the ‘Money Lady’ for Wednesday night dinners at Branch’s Baptist Church and sang in the choir.  She was also a gifted seamstress and made beautiful smocked dresses for her daughter. When asked what her greatest accomplishment in life was, it was her children.

    My heart and prayers goes out the the family of my favorite lady.It has been such an honor to meet you and service your needs. May your soul rest in heavenly peace.

  2. Bonnie was alot of fun. We had alot of laughs at Lake Gaston with her and George on our jet skis and Sea Doos. I have been away from Richmond since 2003 when I moved to Charlotte NC with my family. May she rest in peace with George and not be in any pain. I am so sorry for your loss to the whole family.
