February 18, 1923 – January 9, 2018

Bonnie Irene Youngblood Solders Pickthorn, 94 passed into the outstretched arms of her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, Jan. 9, 2018.

Bonnie was born February 18, 1923 to John Riley Youngblood and Sarah Ethel Sneed Youngblood in Jerome, Idaho. The seventh child in a family of 10 siblings (eight brothers and two sisters), Bonnie moved with her family to Arkansas for several years until the Great Depression caused them to return in 1936 to Weiser, Idaho to find work. There she met, fell in love with and married a local cowboy, Earl Solders, in 1940. Soon after, they began their little family, a daughter Bonnie Kaye and two sons Virgil and Arlen, and moved in 1950 to Quincy where Earl leveled land in the area and eventually farmed. Bonnie later was employed by Quincy School District as kitchen server, baker, head cook and eventually supervisor, retiring in 1981 after faithfully and always joyfully working for 24 years. After Earl died at the early age of 57, Bonnie married George Pickthorn, another farmer, in 1980 and they were married for sixteen years until his death.

Bonnie has left a beautiful legacy in her life of 94 years: an everlastingly deep faith in God, a devoted prayer life and unconditional love for her family and everyone she ever met.

Bonnie is survived by one son Arlen (Dyanne) of Quincy, one sister Audrey Williams of West Jordan, Utah, nine precious grandchildren, 24 awesome great-grandchildren, and 12 sweet great-great-grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews whom she loved like her own, a loving church family and many, many friends, some of whom she called every day. She was preceded in death by her parents, her loving husbands Earl and George, daughter Bonnie Kaye, son Virgil, eight brothers, one sister, a precious grandson Steven and two sweet infant great-great-grandchildren, James Mathew Milligan and Mica James Solders.

A celebration of Bonnie’s life will take place Saturday, Jan. 27, 2018 at 11 a.m. at Quincy Free Methodist Church, 301 I St. SW, Quincy with a luncheon to follow.

Please leave a memory for the family or sign their online guestbook at www.scharbachs.com. Scharbach’s Columbia Funeral Chapel, Quincy, is assisting the family with arrangements.
