Bonnie was born in Bessemer, Michigan on March 23, 1948, the daughter of the late John and Marge (Olsen) Ramme. She graduated from Marion High School and continued her education at Nicolet College and UW Milwaukee. On August 7, 1965, Bonnie was united in marriage to Darold R. Paisar in Leopolis. Bonnie and Darold raised their two children in Leopolis, where they lived their whole married life. She was a partner in Under the Rainbow Child Care and administrator for both Kids in the Kountry Child Care and the Marion Minnie Mustang Day Care. In 1996, she and her business partner, Mary Madsen, attended the “Stand for the Children” rally in Washington D.C. Bonnie was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Leopolis, part of CCW at the church and assisted with religious education. She was a member and past officer of Wisconsin Child Care Administrator Association, receiving the WCCAA recognition award in 2012 for her outstanding contribution to the organization. Bonnie was a founding member and past Lead Commissioner of The Registry from 1999 – 2016 and in March of this year was awarded the Lifetime Learner Award. She loved with her whole heart and shared her love unselfishly. Bonnie left us too soon and will be missed by many.
