(Bonnie) Felton, 84, of Sheffield passed away Friday, July 23, 2021, at the Lutheran Home in Kane.  She was born on August 9, 1936 in Sheffield, the daughter of Leroy Felton and Dora (Simmerline) Felton.  Bonnie was a lifelong resident of Sheffield and was a 1954 graduate of Sheffield High School.  Most of Bonnie’s career was spent as a Counselor for the Buffalo State Hospital.  After retirement she had several hobbies she enjoyed: jigsaw puzzles, playing games on the computer and she would knit dishtowels and give them to family and countless friends.  She was a member of the Sheffield VFW Women’s Auxiliary.  For relaxation, Bonnie would read a romance novel or root on her favorite football team, the Buffalo Bills.
