Last month the River Bend Family lost a very special employee, Bonnie Waller. Bonnie was our food service coordinator. She took great pride in providing delicious meals for the residents as well as each month to the 55 and older adults in the community of Cascade. There were so many times I would be asked, who is your cook or if that meal was catered in. Comments that this was the best dish I have ever had were often heard and said.
Bonnie greeted residents each day with a smile and would often know what were their plans for the day. She would offer if there was anything she could do to help their day be a little bit more special.
Bonnie had a huge heart. She will be greatly missed by the residents and staff at River Bend. I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with Bonnie. It is so true, “you don’t know what you had until it’s gone.” No one will ever be able to fill your shoes. We love you, Bonnie. Rest in peace our friend!
