Barbara F. Bonebrake was an only child born to Winifred (Tritten) and Kenneth Tony Gilbertson on January 01, 1938, in Breckinridge City, Wilkin Co., Minnesota.

Barbara enjoyed life to the fullest and especially had a love for travel. She was a true gypsy at heart. She was a happy and strong woman who even through the darkest hours of life, put a smile on her face and continued her life journey with strength of character and nobility. She had a special loyalty to those she loved.

Barbara loved to be creative and fulfilled this inner drive with sewing, cooking, and many different crafts. She had a special love for dolls and left behind a beautiful collection.

Barbara married Raymond Dale Bonebrake in June of 1981, spending 34 years together making happy memories. They enjoyed trips to Mexico and Utah, and built a home together that they enjoyed for many years.

Barbara leaves behind her husband, Raymond Dale Bonebrake of Roseburg Oregon; three sons, Edward Dale Widman of Roseburg, OR; Rocky Christoper Parsons and wife, Tabitha, also of Roseburg, and Allen Dean Bonebrake and wife, Vickie, of Salt Lake City, UT. She also leaves behind, devoted daughter, Teri Lee Widman, who tenderly cared for her throughout her life, especially whenever the time and the love of her daughter was needed. She leaves two grandsons, Gary Allen Kimball and Carter Eli Parsons; and two great-granddaughters, Hailey and Alyana. Barbara greeted many loved ones on the other side of the veil that preceded her in death.
