  1. Bonnie was always the same; smiling, caring and “a lady”. She lived a life of devotion to her husband, children, grandchildren, church, friends and associates. 🙏🙏

  2. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  3. Prayers for comfort for Bonnie’s family. She was a wonderful lady and will be sadly missed by eyeryone who knew her.

  4. Bonnie was such a good friend and will be missed so much by so many. She was always ready to lend a helping hand and did so much for everyone. She loved her family and was always there for them. Our prayers are with Jimmie, Lori, Brad and all the family. We will truly miss Bonnie.

  5. Words can’t express our sadness at losing Bonnie. One could not ask for better neighbors and friends. Tommy spent countless hours enjoying canning with Bonnie and Jimmie and we both enjoyed our countless conversations over the last 14 years about children, grandchildren, yard work and life in general. Her cooking was beyond compare and we were the recipients of many of her delicious dishes, especially pies. Our entire family always looked forward to her plate of warm ham and biscuits at Christmas. We know it is selfish to want her back because she is in a better place, but we do.

  6. Lori & Brad, I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom. Please know that you all & your Dad are in our hearts and prayers during this difficult time. We hope your warm memories and the love and prayers of your family and friends will be of comfort to you in the days ahead. – Joe Harlan & Beth Stone

  13. I am so sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers in the days ahead. I know you have wonderful memories. I always remember that she always had a smile on her face. My favorite memory was when we went with you all to the Donnie and Marie concert that I think PCA sponsored. I think it was my first concert it left a lasting impression. May God bless you. She will be missed. So sorry I am not in town to attend the visitation.

  14. I was so blessed to know and work with Bonnie. Sending prayers of comfort to her family that she loved so much.

  15. May the Lord comfort and sustain you throughout this time of deep loss.
