BANGOR – Bonnie L. (McClure) Hayman, died unexpectedly on the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2005, at a Bangor hospital. Bonnie was born Aug. 7, 1944, in Melrose, Mass., the daughter of Charles and Nadine (Kuhlmann) McClure. Bonnie was a graduate of Hampden Academy, where she participated in student activities including membership to the Hampden Junior Rifle Club. At Husson College, Bonnie studied accounting and spent the first part of her working career utilizing those skills at the James A. Taylor Osteopathic Hospital as an account specialist. Her true passion was to help others and she spent the last 15 years of her life in the social work field. She went back to college and earned her bachelor of science degree in social work from the University of Maine. While working on her degree she began working for Community Health and Counseling as a case manager and found great satisfaction in that work. Bonnie needed to retire from her position due to declining health in 2003, but remained in close contact with all the dear friends and coworkers she had made over the years. The professionalism and her attention to detail she brought to her work was a true asset to the lives of all those that she served. As passionate as Bonnie was about her work, she shared equal passion for her leisure and recreational activities. For 32 years she was very active with Speedway 95 in Hermon. She was first involved as a bookkeeper but then moved to the position of Pit Steward, where her natural ability to lead and delegate showed through. Bonnie also loved to travel, and she and her mother took annual trips to such destinations as Portugal, Hawaii and Costa Rica to share in the rich cultures those lands had to offer. Bonnie also loved playing cards with “the Girls”, and enjoyed the dinners, laughter and companionship they all brought to one another. Needlework and crafts was another pastime Bonnie enjoyed and spent many happy hours working away, at her home on her creations. Bonnie was predeceased by her father, Charles McClure in Sept. of 1996. She is survived by her mother, Nadine McClure of Hampden; maternal aunt, Delores Lyons of Sarasota, Fla.; her life partner of 24 years, Roland L. Brown of Bangor, Rusty Brown and family of Bangor and Ryan Brown of Springfield, Mass. Visiting hours will be held 6-8 p.m. Friday, at the Hampden-Gilpatrick Funeral Home, 45 Western Ave., Hampden, where a funeral service will be held 2 p.m. Saturday with the Rev. Mr. Frederick Harrigan, deacon of St. Matthews Catholic Church of Hampden, officiating. Interment will follow in the family lot at Lakeview Cemetery, Hampden.
