As a child and young woman, Bonnie was involved in many activities and learned to be diverse and well-rounded. She loved playing softball excelling as a pitcher. She attended and completed Cotillion Etiquette School. Bonnie was also a Senior class officer at Weber High School and President of her sorority at Weber State College.

Bonnie loved children and especially loved teaching children. She taught elementary school for several years before starting a family.

Bonnie was actively involved in the PTA at Boulton Elementary while her kids attended, eventually serving local PTA President for that school. Boulton Elementary in Bountiful.
As an adult, in her personal time, Bonnie played tennis with friends for many years, and enjoyed spending time reading, crocheting, and playing Sudoku and Words with Friends. She loved her strawberry plants and rose bushes. In her later years, Bonnie had a special affinity for watching hours of tennis, Hallmark movies, and Fox News on television.

Bonnie was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Throughout her life, she took the opportunity to serve in many callings in the LDS church. Bonnie was particularly pleased and terrified to teach Gospel Doctrine to the adult men and women in her ward, which she found extremely challenging and especially rewarding.

Those who knew Bonnie best will remember her as a faithful and loving wife, a wonderful mother, and a loyal and devoted friend. She was an excellent listener and offered so many of her family and friends just the right amount of advice and support.

Bonnie’s family expresses its sincere and most heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to the many individuals who touched Bonnie’s life and loved and supported her.
