  1. I am so sorry to hear of this. I am so glad that I got to know Solange here at GSU. The world has lost a great lady and such a kind soul. She will be dearly missed. Ron, you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

  2. “Le souvenir est le parfum de l’âme.” (George Sand) Your sweetness and gentleness will remain in our memories and the memories of those whose lives you touched here at GSU, Georgia Tech and at the Alliance Française. You will be sorely missed. It was a pleasure working with you all these years.

  3. I extend my deepest condolences. Solange had the perfect blend of sweetness and toughness, and a sharp sense of humor. She left quite a mark on students and the faculty and will be missed greatly. I was moved by Ron´s toast to Solange at the retirement party only weeks ago. His love and admiration for his wife was felt by all. My thoughts and prayers go out to him.

  4. The School of Modern Languages at Georgia Tech wishes to send its condolences to Solange’s family and friends. She served the GT French students over a number of years, and influenced many of them to continue on in their studies of French language and culture. We thank her for her service to all

  5. Solange was a valiant lady. We appreciated her cheerful outlook, her professionalism and her collegiality. Solange’s courage over the last few years as she worked more than full-time while dealing with medical challenges was truly impressive. Our sincerest condolences to her husband and family.

  6. My husband and I were saddened to hear about the death of Dr. Solange Bonnet. Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family. I wish I could have had a chance to talk with her more often during her final days. She will be sorely missed.

  7. I have known Solange for many years and we often shared conversation in the copy room. I thought her name was so pretty and loved saying it when I greeted her.
    As others have mentioned, I appreciated her smile, wit and good humor. I was so touched by Ron’s loving and moving comments about her at the retirement party just a few weeks ago.
    I will miss her as so many others will.
    My deepest sympathy to her husband and family.

  8. I am deeply saddened by the news of Solange’s passing. I was always impressed by her commitment to the students in the French program at Georgia State, by her dedication to excellence, and by her wit and gentle kindness towards her colleagues. I will always remember her assistance and direction and am grateful to have known such a wonderful lady. Our prayers and sympathy are with you, Ron. She will be missed by us all.

  9. Solange Bonnet will always be remembered and missed deeply as a kind lady of the academe. Her loving manner and demeanor distinguished her as an affable presence within Atlanta’s academic community. I extend my deepest condolences to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.

  12. We all respected and admired Solange as she was a member of the Atlanta Toulouse Sister City group for many years.
    My condolences to her entire family as I am sure that she will be missed. Wishing peace and healing to all of those close to her.

  13. I had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Bonnet through a class I took at GSU, she had a great blend of strictness and humor and I enjoyed taking her class since I had to work hard! I often got to see her at AF where she also taught. I was very saddened to hear of her passing through another teacher just this past weekend and my heartfelt condolences go out to the family. I’m sure she’ll be missed by many, many students.

  14. I am deeply saddened to hear about Madame Bonnet’s passing. I only took one class with her this past Spring semester, but she improved my French creative writing skills immensely. She was kind and compassionate, and I really loved her dry sense of humor and sarcasm. She will be missed. Rest in peace, and my deepest condolences to her family and loved ones.

  15. I was looking up Madame Bonnet to see if she was still teaching at Georgia State when I found this page and learned of her passing. My heart is broken by the news, and I’m actually even more saddened to see that she had died 4 years ago. She was my favorite professor I have ever had, and it was a pleasure to be in her classes, so much so that I made sure to build my schedule around her class the second semester I took French, just so that I could have her as my instructor again. She taught me so much about the language and culture, and it all served me very well when I went on to study abroad in France. I would see her occasionally around campus and always say hello, but after I graduated I became so busy, but wanted to check in and see how she was doing. She may be gone, but I will never forget her. I’ve always gone by Chris, but she gave me the name Christophe, and it is a name I still sometimes go by, as well as have friends who still to this day refer to me as such. Goodbye, Madame Bonnet. Qu’elle repose en paix.
