Bonnie Lee Froman Spear, 65, of Clover, SC, passed away at her home surrounded by her children on September 28, 2023. She was born July 1, 1958, in Baltimore, Maryland, to the late Kenneth Ray Froman and Ruby Virginia Adams Froman. She was preceded in death by her husband, Rev. Wayne Spear, on February 2, 2022.

Bonnie was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother.
