I have many fond memories of Bonnie. My mother, Ginny Leslie, worked and bowled with her for many years on the Hilltop Travel Team. They had great times along with Jan Christianson, Beulah Packham & Nadine Swenson (to name a few). Loved going to her home and recently ran across pictures I'd taken at Susan's wedding. Mom passed in 2007 and I know how difficult that loss can be. May you find peace & comfort in memories and know that " Death is not the last sleep, it is the final awakening" (Sir Walter Scott)

Bonnie was a great friend of mine, who opened her house and family to me over forty years ago. She was always the life of the party, always upbeat and full of life. I enjoyed her wit, her humor and her love. I also enjoyed her Yorkshire Pudding!She has gone home now and it won't be long before we all get to be with her again. I would like to tell Kent and Susie that your Mom was a classic and loved by all that knew her. She will greatly be missed and thought of often.I had to work today and couldn't be with you. Kiss her once for me.Clair

I am sorry to read of Bonnies passing. I was in the neighborhood I lived in as a child yesterday and was showing my wife all the houses and telling her about the people who lived in them and the memories I have of those people. Bonnie and Doug were large contributors to those good memories. Terry
