OBIT-TorreyBLUE HILL — Bonnie L. Torrey, 63, of Blue Hill, died on July 19, 2015, at Blue Hill Memorial Hospital. She was born on Dec. 6, 1951, daughter of Irving and Beverly (Gray) Richman.

Bonnie grew up in Massachusetts and attended Agawam High School. She summered in Lamoine and spent much of her time with Ralph and May Gray, her grandparents, on their farm. Those were some of her fondest memories of her childhood.

Bonnie owned The Barnacle in Blue Hill, which she started with her daughter-in-law Jessica Torrey. Owning a business was one of her lifelong dreams and she was proud of what she achieved. Prior to owning The Barnacle, she worked as a caregiver, office assistant and also volunteered at Kneisel Hall.

Bonnie is survived by her oldest son Christopher Torrey and wife Jessica Torrey of Blue Hill, her son Daniel Torrey and wife Candice Torrey of Blue Hill, grandsons Thatcher and Oliver Torrey. Bonnie was predeceased by her mother and father Beverly and Irving Richman of Westfield, Mass.

There will be a celebration of life for Bonnie at the First Baptist Church of Blue Hill this Saturday, July 25, 2015, at 1 p.m. If anybody would like to bring something to share, be it a story a picture or something to eat, it would be welcome.
