It is with deep regret and sadness that the Thompson-Nicola Regional District announces the passing of Bonnie CruzelleMyram, Electoral Area “O” (Lower North Thompson) director, after a long battle with cancer.

Randy Murray, TNRD chair and Electoral Area “M” director, expressed sorrow and grief on behalf of himself and the board at CruzelleMyram’s passing. He also praised her valuable contributions to the board on behalf of her constituents.

“Our thoughts and hearts go out to Bonnie’s family and friends at this difficult time,” Murray said. “We will miss her laugh and that twinkle in her eye; you could always count on Bonnie and her straightforward approach as she went about representing her constituents and tackling the issues. We were fortunate to have her as a good friend, a strong colleague and a truly genuine person.”

CruzelleMyram, from Barriere, first served as an alternate director for Electoral “O” from 2005 to 2006. She was subsequently acclaimed as director for Electoral Area “O” in 2007, a position she held until her passing.

During her time on the TNRD board, CruzelleMyram served on several board committees, including most recently drinking water and utilities; emergency management; as well as the economic, tourism and regional parks committee.
