Bonnie Ogden Burns, 69, passed away at her home Saturday, April 11, 2020.

Bonnie was born in Cambridge, Mass., June 1, 1950. She grew up in Bedford, Mass., and graduated from Bedford High School in 1968. Bonnie lived in Carlisle, Mass. until 1983, when she and her family moved to Appleton. She resided in Camden for the past 22 years.

Bonnie spent the majority of her life as a homemaker, then went on to work at a few stores in Camden. Most people remember her from the Camden Reny’s where she worked for many years.

While Bonnie contended with peripheral vascular disease for a number of years, she was a true champion; she stayed strong and kept on smiling. Her smile — that is what everyone remembers.

Bonnie was a devoted mother and grandmother. She loved spending time with her family, especially her beloved granddaughter Jade. Bonnie enjoyed camping and took pride in her time as Campground Host at Lake Saint George State Park last summer. Helping at the campground and camping with her family brought her great happiness.

From her medical team to neighbors, community members and friends and family, all that knew her, adored Bonnie. Her sweet smile, contagious laugh and positive attitude made Bonnie a person you couldn’t help but love. She will be missed!

Bonnie is survived by her daughter, Buffy Ludwick, son-in-law, Blaze Ludwick and granddaughter, Jade Ludwick of Searsmont, as well as by her son, Shane Burns and daughter-in-law, Deborah Burns, of Appleton. Also by her brother, Blake Ogden and sister-in-law, Sidney Hendrickson, of Edmond, Okla., her sister Deborah Park, of Raymond, N.H., nieces, Brittany Pepper, of Candia, N.H. and Alyssa Park, of Manchester, N.H., nephews Jason Park of Raymond, N.H., Frank Garfield, of Oconto Falls, Wis. and John Garfield, of Champlin, Minn.

Bonnie is predeceased by her parents John and Shirley Ogden, and her sister, Nancy Garfield.

The family plans to hold a celebration of life for Bonnie later this summer, which will be announced.
