The common thread when speaking of Bonnie is what a kind soul she was. Always happy, always game for anything. She loved her family and was generous to all.
She vacationed with us at the beach and we were happy to have her.
We will miss her kind spirit.
Sympathies to her family.

Bonnie was a sweet and kind woman. She was hard working and very generous to her family and friends. She used her vacations to visit her son, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren. She was very proud of them all. Bonnie was always game for anything and she had a great sense of humor. She's made me laugh many times. To my sister Loree, my brother-in-law Scott, my niece and nephews, so sorry for your loss. Bonnie, I enjoyed my times with you. You will be missed by many xo.
