November 16, 1954 — January 3, 2018
RACINE — Bonnie C. Madrigal, 63, passed away at Zilber Family Hospice in Wauwatosa on Wednesday, January 3, 2018. She was born in Hong Kong, China on November 16, 1954, daughter of the late Kwok Ying Ho and Shiu Lan Wong. Bonnie was united in marriage to Ramon Madrigal in Waukegan, Illinois on December 29, 1980. Ramon preceded her in death on September 11, 2011.
Together, Bonnie and Ramon worked many years servicing Chinese restaurants throughout the Chicago area and in Southeastern Wisconsin. Initially, the couple owned a Chinese restaurant in the late ‘80s called “The Golden Phoenix”. A few years later they decided to take a different route in restaurant hospitality to open their first Mexican cuisine restaurant, “Los Mariachis,” and added three locations in S.E. Wisconsin. Their motto was “The only things in life worth having are family, a place to call home & good food.” To say that Bonnie enjoyed cooking and her family would be an understatement. She also liked to travel, and offered generous support to her family, employees, and many community organizations.
Bonnie is survived her children: Sandra Madrigal, Angela (Carlos) Espinoza, Theresa Madrigal, all of Racine; brother Tony Ho of Waukesha; mother-in-law Amalia Madrigal of Racine; brothers-in-law: Jesus (Emilia) Madrigal of Racine, Fidel (Maria) Madrigal of Des Plaines, IL, Simon (Rosa) Madrigal, Miguel (Josefina) Madrigal, Ismael (Gina) Madrigal, all of Sheboygan; sisters-in-law: Luz Madrigal, Alicia (Jesus) Ochoa, Vitalina Madrigal, Maria (Javier) Servantez, all of Racine; 5 grandsons; 3 granddaughters; and other numerous relatives too numerous to mention.
