Ida (Bonaparte) Lawrence, our angel of a mother,spread her wings and flew to heaven on February 8, 2019 to be reunited with her late husband, Charles Bernard Lawrence, our father, who was a purple-heart veteran of WWII. She was 95 years young. She was the daughter of Antonio Bonaparte and Gertrude (Tropea) Bonaparte 

She leaves behind a loving family to cherish her memory, including her devoted daughters June Turcotte of Brockton, and Linda Johnson Morse and her husband Wayne of Florida, her beloved grandchildren Dr. Mark Turcotte and his wife Lisa of East Taunton, Lisa Carey and her husband Nic of Florida, Christopher Turcotte of Brockton, and Steven Johnson and his wife Pamela of Brockton. She also leaves her precious great grandchildren, Lauren and Alyssa Turcotte of East Taunton, Brooke Johnson of Brockton, Madeline Martinez of Florida, and Bethanie Turcotte of Brockton.

She is also survived by siblings Louise Erickson, Harold Bonaparte and his wife Lucy, and Patricia Gillis. She was predeceased by brother Guido Bonaparte and his wife Santina, brother-in-law Warren Erickson, son-in-law Maynard Turcotte, son-in-law Phil Johnson, and daughter Charlene Lawrence. She leaves many loving cousins (including special cousins Doris DeBenedictus and Rose Narducci), nieces, nephews, and friends. 

Ida was a 1941 graduate of Brockton High School and had worked for many years at Forsberg Electric and Mutron/ Mupac. She lived with her late husband in Brockton and West Bridge Landing, West Bridgewater for many years. 

She had a passion for golf and played daily in Raynham where she accomplished three holes-in-one. She loved her daily visits to the pool when weather allowed and loved music and enjoyed entertaining people with her piano and organ playing. She was also a wonderful cook, especially baked beans and apple pie, and never visited without bringing a goodie or two. 

She will be greatly missed beyond measure and never forgotten by all who were lucky to have known her. 

Visitation will take place on Saturday, February 16, 2019 from 9 - 11 AM followed by a funeral service at 11:00 AM in the Dahlborg-MacNevin Funeral Home, 647 Main St., Brockton, MA.

Dear June, Linda, and family,

We will always remember Aunt Ida as a very special person in our lives. She once laughed and told me, “Don’t get old!” It was then that I decided, no matter what happens, I will stay young at heart.

She graciously dealt with her ailments and made the most of each day, playing the piano or doing whatever brought her joy. She was always smiling that beautiful big smile, every single time I saw her.

I often wondered how she got all those names! She was Aunty, Naunty, Edie, Ida, and Edith. And we loved all of them, because all of those names radiated love, warmth, and kindness.

We will miss her so much. Heaven has gained one of the most beautiful souls ever created. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Donna & Jeffrey, Nephew and Wife

Love your cousin Rose

Dear Aunti, I will miss you beyond words. I always loved coming to visit and enjoying our family memories and having coffee. I will always cherish those talks.

June, Linda and family I always felt close to Aunti and sharing days past. I will miss her. My heart is breaking even thinking about her leaving this earth.

xxoo Aunti

We are so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible (Acts 24:15, John 5:28, 29). Those who are raised to life on a restored paradise earth will have the prospect of never again being subjected to misery, sickness, and death (Revelation 21:4). These and other comforting Bible verses and thoughts can be found at jw.org.

June--- I just happened to go on the Dahlborg-MacNevin site to look up an obituary for my cousin's husband and I saw your mom's obituary. I extend my sympathy to you and your family. I think the last time I probably saw your mom was at your wedding. I will let Maryann and Steffie know. My best to you. Daley
