Marlynn was born on May 24, 1943 in Elgin, ND to Omer and Irene (Heil) Johnson.  She attended a country grade school near their farm north of Carson, ND and graduated from Carson High School, where she was a cheerleader and homecoming queen.


In 1964 Marlynn married her high school sweetheart, Dave Bonogofsky.  They farmed and ranched in the Carson area for 27 years, working closely together and raising a family.  They had three children, Michelle, David, and Lori.


Marlynn also worked at the Grant County State Bank during their early years of marriage and created a beautiful, comfortable home for her family.   She was kind, thoughtful, and considerate, exuding calm health and well-being with a smile.  Everyone enjoyed being in her presence.  She was completely selfless; always putting others needs above her own.
