Bonnie loved her life as a homemaker, wife, mother, and friend to many. Her home was an extension of herself, which she showed much pride and love for. If she wasn’t inside baking or rearranging furniture, Bonnie could be found outside in her yard or garden. Who could ever forget her beautiful petunias in the summer running between the driveways. Bonnie was also dedicated to her everyday “4 mile walk” through Douglas, meeting many friends on the way.
