Bonita is a Tampa native, growing up in West Tampa and living in South Tampa most of her adult life. She was smart, artistic and crafty but more than anything; she was loved by many. She was a good friend with a big heart, a good cook and loved cooking for people. She loved sunflowers, teapots, teacups and her collection of angels but she really loved other than her friends and family were her shoes. She loved shoes. She will be forever in our hearts and in our prayers. She will be missed, until we meet again.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 pm, Sunday, December 1, 2019 at Hillsboro Memorial Funeral Home.
