Mrs. Elaine Dayton Bonner, age 72, of Hiawassee, Georgia passed away Thursday, January 24, 2019 at her home. Elaine was born on July 22, 1946 to Mr. D.B. and Sadie (Arrowood) Dayton in Hiawassee. She was a member of North Mt. Zion Church of God her entire life and a life long resident of Towns County. Elaine graduated from Towns County High School and later went on to North Georgia College to receive her license as a Registered Nurse. She retired after 24 years of nursing and her new joy came from baking cakes or pies for everyone she knew. Elaine loved "Gone with the Wind" so much that she modeled her home in its likeness and would make her own dresses in the antebellum style. Elaine had the biggest heart, she cared for people on many levels, from her own family to the patients at work and for her church family. She truly had a heart of gold. Elaine is preceded in death by her parents, D.B. and Sadie Dayton; brother D.L. Dayton and sister Vonnell Allen. She is survived by her husband, Warren Bonner; sons, Scott and Jason Bonner both of Hiawassee; grandchildren, Brooke Bonner of Gainesville, and Chase Bonner of Blairsville; great grandchildren, Kenson and Nova Whelchel and her sister Mae Holcomb of Clayton. Elaine will greatly missed by all her family, friends, and her dog, Rover.
