Whitey
My deepest sympathy goes out to your and your family on the passing of Bonnie

I will always cherish the many fond memories I have of Bonnie from back in the day. Seeing her at all the festivals and dances and lounges will be something never to be forgotten.

Her smile and ability to make someone laugh just by being present is what I will remember her by. Many, many good times as she was one of the warmest, most sincere people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time.

Rest in Peace Bonnie, until we meet again

Bonnie was full of joie de vivre - the love of life and joy of living. I told her that once and when she asked me to explain I told her that she packed more love, laughter and fun into a single moment than most people did into a month. I met Bonnie first through Cheryl Cooper. Cheryl was involved with the Beverly Theatre Guild and when I would come to Chicago to visit, she would frequently be doing something at the theater and I would join her. The first time I met Bonnie, she handed me a paint brush and pointed to a window frame. Laughingly she said it was to be brown "for now, until Emil changes his mind again!" The smile and the laugh will remain in my memory forever. Love and condolences to her family.

Whitey, and family,
I was saddened about learning of your wife's passing. I'm so sorry for your loss. We haven't see each other in years since the days of your playing with Marion.

To Bonnie’s family and friends, my deepest condolences. I just heard of her passing. She lived three doors down from me growing up.
We had some fun times together. My favorite memory is that awesome igloo we built during the blizzard . Rest In Peace, dear Bonnie.
If I did not live out of state, I would for sure come to your memorial.

Bonnie had a perpetual smile; smart wit and love for life! Her loss is extremely sad, as we lost a light in this dark world. Her moxie was ever present along with one of the greatest sense of humor.

I'll always treasure her friendship, as well as kindness over the years.
