Yvonne "Bonnie" Catherine Briggs, 85, of Chippewa Falls, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 8, 2023 at her residence surrounded in love by her family under the care of St. Joseph’s Hospice.

Some of her favorite pass times were crossword puzzles and quilting, making beautiful quilts for each of her children and grandchildren throughout the years.
