Geraldine Bonnett

January 2, 2022


Geraldine Bonnett battled medical issues for many years, however she lost her battle and passed away on January 2, 2022 from a sudden illness. Geraldine was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and was the daughter of the late Pledge and Hester Williams.

Mrs. Bonnet was employed locally as a CNA and home health aide for over two decades. Geraldine dedicated her life to her family and community service. Her kind and giving way led her not only to help others in need but she was revered as a resident leader and community activist. 

Her diligent work to instill a positive quality of life in all those she met was unmatched by anyone. Geraldine always pushed for others to see the best in themselves and was totally unapologetic about the way she lived. She was a woman who could see the good in anyone she met, and once you met Geraldine, you never forgot her.

She will forever be known as “everyone’s grandmother”. Geraldine will be remembered as a loving and caring mother and grandmother, who cherished the time she spent with her family and countless lifelong friends.

Geraldine is survived by her life partner Leroy Sykes, her children, Anthony Bonnet of Fall River, Tavares Bonnett of Taunton, Hashanna Williams of Stoughton and Unique Sykes of Taunton.

Siblings: Irvin Williams and Rozella Perry; grandchildren, Chymia, Anthony, Jr, Travone, Shamel (aka, Jaydin), Davon, Tamir, Nina, Kayden, Kobe, and Ameerah, great grandchildren, Aria, Travone Jr, Shamel and a plethora of family members especially her nieces and nephews, extended family and countless lifelong friends. 

She was the mother of the late Shamel Bonnett and sister of the late Alexander, Wesley, Frank, and Robert Williams and Shirley Day.
