Bonnie Roth of Laurel passed away on Sunday, Aug. 6, 2023 at the Stansell House Coastal Hospice in Berlin surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on March 13, 1940 in Laurel, daughter of the late Harley and Margaret (Whaley) Boyce. She was beloved by everyone that met her. She was a dedicated daughter, sister, aunt, mother, Grammy, and Gaga.

She loved travel, family events, class reunions and luncheons with her girlfriends.  

She is survived by her sons, Gregory Thomas Holland (Aida) and Brad Harlen Holland (Stefaney); grandchildren, Meghan Hill (Brian), Kaitlin Fiorentino (Anthony), Natalie Holland-Seda, Ariana Holland-Seda, and Juliana Holland-Seda; great-grandchildren, Roman, Elizabeth, Griffin, Ezekiel, and Ridley; and several nieces and nephews.
