I met Bonnie when we both worked at the Austin Boys' Ranch. One highlight was when we shared a road trip; she was going to southern Illinois and I was going to Nashville. Kind, tough and fun, our Bonnie.
I was gone when the obit was published or I would have posted earlier. I would definitely try to attend the party in her honor if someone could let me know details. I hoped it has not already occurred Thank you

Bonnie was a bundle of energy in the Austin Workforce Center on days she was here & not a holiday went by without her decorating and making treats, from caramels to candy turkeys. We were so glad that she stayed well past her "expiration date" and give the family our condolences.

I had the priveldge meeting Bonnie when I was newbie working as a job placement professional for a company in Austin. Bonnie was so knowledgeable and had a true passion for her job! Bonnie never held judgement to the individuals she worked with and took pride in making sure that her clients were successful! I loved learning from her! I can still hear voice whenever I would see her! She was delight and will be truly missed!

Will be greatly missed. Please contact me for a celebration of life (which Bonnie lived to the fullest) If possible, would like to be there.

Bonnie, I'm so glad you and Bill decided to stay for the steak fry at WLS back in 198(?). That day I met two of the best friends a person could hope to have. You will be greatly missed.
