Bonnies own writing at age 90
I was a girl born on the farm who grew up riding a pony Toby, my best friend across the prairie in Eastern Colorado at age 12. I brought in the cows, milked them at 6:am and again at 6:pm, separated the milk, churned butter, and drank buttermilk which I love. Next, I moving back to Kansas at age 18, met Karl at age 20, married at age 21. We had 5 darling children and lost one precious daughter. Even with that, Ive gone on and had a very good life.

Bonnie was one of those special people who made the world a better place with her generosity, her grace, her smile, and her unconditional love. To know her was to truly know an angel on earth

Bonnie would have been 100 on November 15th
