THOMASTON and BANGOR – Bonita “Bonnie” Esther (Curtis) Mayo, 54, died unexpectedly Feb. 26, 2010. She was born Feb. 1, 1956, in Bangor, daughter of Frank and Esther Curtis. “Live Well, Laugh Often, Love Much” – Bonnie lived her life true to these words and encouraged those she loved to live theirs in the same manner. She was a devout Jehovah’s Witness and spent her lifetime dedicated to helping others come to an accurate knowledge of her creator, to love him and trust in his promises of a future without sickness and death. A loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, daughter and friend, Bonnie possessed a generous heart. She loved deeply, admired and inspired loyalty, shared her enthusiasm for life with all and used her incredible sense of humor to cope with any trials that came her way. Bonnie’s husband, children and grandchildren were her most precious gifts, and the home she shared so openly and warmly was a haven to family and friends throughout the years. She lives on in Jehovah’s memory and in the hearts of those who love her. She will never be forgotten. Bonnie is survived by her husband of 31 years, Joel of Thomaston; their daughter, Megan Johnston and husband, Peter, of Union; their son, Jordan Mayo and wife, Lora, of Thomaston; her brother, Frank Curtis and wife, Patricia, of Bangor; her sister, Susan Curtis of Arlington, Mass.; her niece, Michelle Capozziello and husband, Nick, of Winterport; her niece, Rachel Pettengill and husband, Scott, of Saint Cloud, Fla.; her nephew, Aaron of Bangor; her two precious granddaughters, India and Willow Johnston; her great-niece, Teagan Sands; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Richard and Gina Mayo of Milo; and many other close family members and friends.
