Bonnie raised her children with a kind but firm hand. She was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. There was nothing that she loved better than having her children visit. There were freshly made chocolate chip cookies in the cookie jar and a box of toys in the closet. In the past few years, she wasn’t able to cook so she kept ice cream bars in her freezer for her grandkids.
Bonnie was a Cub Scout leader for her sons. When she decided to go to work for the Roswell Independent School District, she was a teacher’s aide. She was passionate about helping the children do the best that they could in school.
Bonnie was a member of First Christian Church. Her faith was an example to all of us. She was a member of the Mary Martha and Guild women’s groups. She participated in Chaves County Extension Clubs.
