So many memories from long ago when Russell and I were first married. Johnny and JoAnn lived in the trailer park Bonnie and Junior were babies. Played a lot of gin rummy. We moved down here, every one working and loss touch. A great couple and they are together again. So very sorry for your loss. She will be missed. We have memories of a very special lady.

My deepest condolences to the family. I graduated with Bonnie, and in our earlier years (the last time I saw her) I remember how nice Mrs. Causey was, such a sweet lady. Prayers for everyone.

Mrs. Causey always said call me Joanne. She was like a mother to me. She taught me about the culture and the food of the south. She loved the beach and we would drive along Ocean Blvd. after a day of getting her hair done and going to Wally World as she called it.

Joanne will be missed by All.
Prayers and condolences for Bonnie, David and the Causey Family
