    My family met Bonnie several years ago on an Alaskan cruise. We along with some travelers from Australia teamed up to compete in Trivia together each day. We were hard to beat. Bonnie was a light in our group. She kept in touch with a member of our group, so we were able to keep tabs on her. We are sorry for your loss and will be praying for your family.

    My sympathies also. I knew Bonnie who was just three years younger than my mother at Maple Grove and at Reunions after the Greene’s arrived in Missouri. She was kind and interested in other people and intelligent, yet I never really knew all that she did in her career. She was a part of our community.

    Bonnie was one of my professors at Missouri Western. Wonderful lady. She expected much from us students and gave as much to help us achieve. My sympathy to her family.

    I was so sad to hear of Bonnie’s passing. She and my mom and their husbands were great friends. She and I had lots of fun times at Spectacular in Lamoni several summers. We teamed up for several tennis tournaments and she was great with our kids. I was in Colorado when you had her service. Sorry I missed it. Hope you boys are well.
