Bonnie was the rock of the family. She enjoyed being a wife, mother, and grandmother. She loved spending time with her family. She loved snowy days and especially Christmas and decorating for the holidays. She was famous for her delicious Christmas fruit cakes and rosettes…friends and family couldn't wait to visit and enjoy her holiday treats.

Bonnie loved horse racing and even owned her own horse. She loved her church and attending life groups weekly.
