Bonita and I have known each other for over 20 years. I lived in Arkansas for 16 years. I really got to know Bonita when we worked in the church library together. We could talk about anything with each other. During the hard times we each knew we could count on the other. Two of my favorite memories was when I moved to Nebraska Bonita was able to take my rose bush and plant it in her yard. Every time I visited she would talk and show me how well the rose bush was doing. After I moved to Nebraska we continued to keep in contact. My favorite memory is when I came down last March or April. We went on a trail ride on horses. It was Bonita Robin jenny and myself. Bonita really loved horses. We had a fine old time. Love to your family

My thoughts and prayers continue for Robin, William, Jolene and the entire Family.
Bonita will always be remembered for her sweet and steady spirit. Over the decades, she gave all to those she loved. There were many times she saw others struggle, and willingly picked up and helped carry the load; yet I don’t ever remember hearing a complaint leave her lips.
She truly exemplified her Savior, Jesus Christ. A faith she never wavered from.
Well Done loyal and faithful servant. I will remember that example always.
Rest Now in Peace and Love, Bonita, My Friend. We could use you cheering us on from the other side!

Bonita was a wonderful caring lady. She was “everyone’s grandma “ always taking care of small children and us “big” kids as well. She never left horseback riding without giving me a big hug. She took such good care of Robyn. I will treasure the warm, fuzzy blanket she gave me at Christmas. I will feel her love when wrapping up in it every winter. I will miss you, Bonita.
