Sending our deepest condolences, prayers and love to Bonnie's family. I can remember Bonnie well when Iris and I would walk to school together. Often times she would answer the door and greet me as if I were the most important person of her day. She would always ask how my mother and father were and inquire as to what my plans for the day were. Iris, I know how much you all will miss your beautiful mother, but she decorates the stairway to heaven on her journey home. Your mother will always be one of my fond memories of our school days. God Is
Good All The Time.

Janet, your Mom was a beautiful, sweet lady!!! I fondly remember all of the times you both visited Park East!!! She always had a kind, happy smile and had nothing but kind words. I am sincerely sorry for your loss!

Aunt Bonnie was such an amazing wonderful woman and an inspiration to me! I loved being around her. She was always so sassy, spunky, and fun. My favorite days were when she, Aunt Elsie, Nanna, and I would go eat together at Village Inn. It was so much fun spending time with them. There was never a dull moment around Aunt Bonnie. I love that she never muted who she was or changed for anyone. She was Bonnie and if you didn't like it, that was just too bad for you. Everyone needs a Bonnie in their life, and I'm so glad she was in mine. <3

Bonnie will be missed. When I would go visit with Jim over at his parents house, Bonnie and George made me always feel welcomed. My prayers are with you all at this time.
