May Adeline Bonds
May Adeline Bonds passed away March 9, 2014 in Colville at the age of 85. She was born on January 5, 1929 to Harold and Claire Davis in Mason City, Iowa. May worked as a nurse at Pinewood in Colville for over a decade. She worked in the infectious skin disease control area. May also took on the challenge to create the Certified Nurse’s Aide Training Program. After the State of Washington approved the program, she taught the class and took great pride in each student’s success. The program she created is still being used to this day. May loved to spend time with her family. She always had a house full of kids, mostly friends of her children, and granddaughters Teanne and Kayla McGovern. Her house was always the place to hang out or spend the night. She always made you feel at home when you were there.
