Bonnie Carvey and her husband, Vern, both served on the Board of Trustees at Faith Academy and were parents to Tim ‘70; Chuck ‘72 and John ’74.

Email received on September 17th:

“My Mother passed on to heaven at 3 pm on Tuesday, September 11, 2012. I wanted you to know so you can pray with us for grace during this time and celebrate her life. My brother, Chuck, wrote the following notice and it expresses my thoughts and feelings as well. Blessings, John Carvey”

Dear Friends,

This afternoon (9/11/2012) at about 3pm, my Mom, Bonnie Carvey, was blessed by the receipt of her heart’s desire. She has moved from Denver, Colorado, to Heaven itself. Many years ago, she passed from death to live in Jesus Christ. During the years since then, she has come to know God better and been freed from the power of this world’s systems. Now she is free from the very presence of sin and is in the presence of God Almighty and her older brother Jesus, the Christ.

Although I don’t have the exact address, her new home is a mansion prepared just for her. She is catching up with Vern, her husband of 40 years, her brother Clyde and sister Claudia and many others from both recent and ancient times.

She lived her last days as all the rest, ministering to those around her. She celebrated with her AWANA co-leaders on Saturday, testified to her physician on Sunday, and spent time with her family. She has lived her life as a godly woman; allowing others to come to an understanding of what that looks like in today’s world. I will miss her, as will many others whose lives she has touched. The blessing she has bestowed will remain eternally. I know that I will see her again and that there will be no end to our time together.

Please join with me as we cry a bit – for we miss her. Also join me in celebration of her new life, in her new home, in a new land where there is no sadness or pain. Thanks!

We have scheduled a memorial service for my Mom, Bonnie Carvey. It will be held at the Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church (10150 E.Belleview Ave, Englewood, CO 80111) on Wednesday September 19, 2012, at 10:00am. A reception will follow with light refreshments. There will be a viewing on Tuesday, September 18th at the Dewitt and Tabler Funeral Home (12114 Grant Circle, Thornton, CO 80241) from 5:00pm to 8:00pm.

Many of you have already called or emailed us and we really appreciate all your tenderness and support. By Saturday morning, my brothers and I will have a web site available for you with some remembrances posted. We invite you to share with us and others who knew and loved Bonnie by posting a note at:
