Obituary for Brigitte Dee Boni

Brigitte Dee Boni entered into rest on July 19, 2020, in Tucson. She was born on Sept. 4, 1962, in Sells, Arizona to parents Joe Cruz, Jr. and Harrietta F. Dick Cruz.

Brigitte was well known in the Bylas community but was originally from Santa Rosa, Arizona. She has been a resident of Bylas for 38 years and was involved in the local church, the Bylas Lighthouse Assembly of God.  She loved the Lord and shared that same love with the people of the community.

She enjoyed being in the kitchen cooking, coloring in coloring books, making beaded jewelry, and being a wife and mom, but most of all, she loved being a grandma to three beautiful little girls who meant the world to her.
