When Bonnie wasn’t being a homemaker, she worked as a cook and server.  She also enjoyed playing crossword puzzles, playing cards, shopping online, watching game shows on TV, and family gatherings.  Bonnie loved to tell jokes and was always kidding around, she was fun-loving and very kind-hearted.  One of her favorite sayings was, “We’ll just take him out back and shoot him”.  She was very happy when her children began giving her grandchildren.  She loved her children but loved her grandbabies more.
