I have so many memories of her but I think the best one was when we went to Tennessee on vacation and we went to grandfathers mountain, we found a place to stay got 2 rooms we were on the second floor, we wanted to go for ice so we got on the elevator went down to 1st floor the door opened and the lights were out and no one was around! We made our way to the kitchen never found ice we were both scared went back up to the room locked the door! We made it through the night and had a good laugh the next day, I will miss you Bonnie. Love and hugs ❤️

I attended St. Ann School, Lansing, IL and TF South High School, Lansing, IL. I remember Bonnie as a quiet, (perhaps a little shy), kind and sweet person. The years put distance among all of us, although I was fortunate to have attended a reunion in fall, 2019. It was great to see Bonnie again. Surely, hers was a life well-lived, with family and friends. That's all we can ask for.

In those days I was Donna Lynn Angus, now Lynn Nolan.

May she rest in peace.

My dear classmate, Bonnie, from St. Ann's, may you rest now. I will always remember our laughter together, our terrible bag lunches and Sister Salome, our playground games, your great smile.
Blessings to you, watch over us.
Love, Nancy Nau
