Dorothy E. Bokman

Dorothy E. (Sonnelitter) Bokman, 89 died peacefully at the home of her son and daughter-in-law, Brad and Michele.

Born October 28, 1929 she was daughter of the late Herman and Esther (Jackson) Sonnelitter. Dorothy grew up with a love of animals, where she gained local notoriety competing with her champion jumper, Popeye, a one-eyed crossbreed with whom she regularly defeated many high priced purebreds. She graduated from Lockport High School and went on to obtain her Master’s degree in education from the University of Buffalo. Dorothy worked as a business teacher at Medina High School for many years. After she retired, she went on to a second career developing and managing apartments in the area.   

Dorothy was predeceased by her former husband, Michael Bokman and her partner later in life, Bob Walker. She is survived by her son, Brad (Michele) Bokman; her loving grandchildren, Natalie (Ryan) Seal, Chelsea, Matt and Mitch Bokman; and several relatives.  

Friends may call on Saturday, July 13, from 10 – 11 a.m. at Cooper Funeral Home, 215 West Center St., Medina, where her funeral service will immediately follow at 11 a.m. Friends and family are invited afterward to a celebration of life at the Bokman Farm, 3844 Long Bridge Rd.
