She graduated Thomas Jefferson High School in 1965 and then moved back to Ohio where she got married, started a family and a successful career in Marketing and Public Relations. In 1976 Texas came calling so Bonnie packed up and moved back Texas- Houston and settled in the Memorial area for a few years until Katy called her and that was home.

This past year she created a company called Life Lessons and Legacies where she was planning on empowering people to live a full reward driven lives through a lecture series and a book.
Bonnie loved her friends, playing Mexican Train, spending time with her grandkids and lit up a room with her infectious smile and positive manner. She always bragged her children were her biggest accomplishment but her grandchildren were her biggest joy.
