Sybil Yvonne “Bonnie” Strong, 84, of Aylett, Va., formerly of Gloucester, Va., took the journey to heaven to be with our Lord and preceding loved ones on Wednesday, March 16, 2022. She was an absolute precious, loving soul! A devoted daughter to her parents who preceded her in passing, Mike and Bess Hayes of Oxford, Ala.; a loving sister to Betty Sawyer of Alabama, who also predeceased her; but most importantly, she was the most wonderful, loving, devoted mother and friend that her children, family and loved ones could have ever been blessed with. She is “lovingly honored” by her children, Christopher Strong, Sandra Nixon, Teri and Chuck Coulter; seven grandkids, Brandy Tufford, Cory Strong, Jessica West, Jeremy Nixon, Sierra Nixon, Mindee Reed and last, but not least, Zachary Coulter (whom she was inseparably close to); five great-grandchildren; and her really close friends, whom she always considered family.

The Coulter family would like to give a “special thanks” to Hospice of Virginia’s Terri, Brittany and Dita for all the care, support and help which made it possible for us to keep Mom home, where she belonged. “My blessed A-Team,” thank you so much, from the bottom of our hearts!

Mom, Nana, Bonnie, you are so very much loved and cherished … ’til we are together again someday … “Love you, Sweetie Pie!”
