Last updated 6/5/2019 at Noon
BonnieAnn Elena Morse left her home in Mountlake Terrace, Washington, to be with the Great Spirit in the Sky on March 9, 2019, taken too young by a heart attack.
BonnieAnn Farrelly was born December 5, 1964, in the Bronx, New York City, the only child of Elizabeth Rios. She was preceded in death by her father, and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
Education was an important part of her life. She attended St. Catharine Academy in the Bronx, New York; Moorpark College in Moorpark, California; Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa; and the University of Nevada, Reno, in Reno, Nevada.
BonnieAnn was an activist, first in the women's rights movement, and later in support of people of color. She was an entrepreneur, helping Bro Marcus of CPCS StandUp Radio make his mark on the internet radio scene.
She enjoyed gardening, cooking, and painting in her spare time. She was married to her husband, Douglas, on the 28th of May in 2006.
She is survived by her mother, Elizabeth Rios, of Sun City Center, Florida; her husband, Douglas Morse, of Mountlake Terrace, Washington; her brother from another mother, Marcus Young, and his daughter Ayvah, of Tucson, Arizona; and two dogs, Finley and Brody.
She was very proud of her Puerto Rican roots, and in accordance with her wishes, she was cremated and her ashes will be returned to the sea.
