Transpers, Bonnie (Mrs. Roger J.)

On Friday, September 3, 1982, Bonnie passed from this life. Religious services were held Monday, September 6, 1982, at Williams United Methodist Church, with Dr. Alfred L. Norris officiating and delivering the eulogy.
She leaves her husband, Rev. Roger J. Transpers; one sister, Ms. Clara Veasley ; two brothers, Omar Hazley of New York and D. M. P. Hazley, Jr. of Kansas City, Missouri; her mother-in-law, Mrs. Stella Transpers of New Orleans and a host of nephews, nieces, cousins, other relatives and friends.
We are indebted to Hildegarde Van Waveren for the following message of comfort:

The Blessed Dead

“How blessed the dead who die in the Lord,
For their works do follow them "thus saith" His Word.
Though we cry out in anguish and dark is the way,
We know that He giveth us strength for the day.

This comforts the heart, though tears dim the eyes
Of him who on God's precious promise relies.
So may we look upward, our hope fixed on God,
And follow the pathway our loved one has trod."
