She was a retired nurse who loved spending time with her grandchildren Kalan, Kamron, and Kaia. Bonnie loved to teach her granddaughter knitting and cooking. She has lived an interesting and varied life. She was born in America, but did her senior year of high school in Germany, owned race horses for a time, loved photography, and had a curiosity and zest for life. This wonderful woman lived life from her heart. If Bonnie loved you, it was unconditional and you knew it. She will be missed.
