Mrs. Bonita Pope, 49, went to be with her Lord and Savior on October 17, 2022. A celebration of her life will be at a later date.
Bonita was born in Pueblo, Colorado to Mrs. Arlene Raigoza and the late Johnny Raigoza. In addition to her father, she is preceded in death by her brother, J.J Raigoza.
Bonita was a loving woman who cared deeply for her friends and family. She started her career off in Addiction Counseling in Colorado and then became a guard in Ordway Prison System. Bonita continued to help others after her job ceased at the prison. Bonita became a Dental Assistant for many years before her illness deprived her of her sight. Even though she became blind, Bonita continued to stay positive and serve her Lord and Savior. Bonita finished her career with Blind Mojo where she sung with her angelic voice.
Bonita is survived by her husband of 20 years, Richard Pope; mother, Arlene Raigoza; children, Raina (Robert) Lopez Schwanz, Daniel Lopez, Michael Pope, and Brianna Pope; grandchild, Melaie Schwanz; brother, David (Pinky) Raigoza; sister, Gina Raigoza; father in law, John Pope, and a host of extended friends and family.
