We have such fond memories of Bonnie from the time spent with her while visiting our mom, grandma, sister, Judy Noland at the St. Lucas Care Center. Bonnie was a wonderful roommate to her. We enjoyed seeing her laugh, especially when Paul, Judy's son, brought his dogs to visit. She perked right up when she saw them. May she rest in peace. The Family of Judy (Dickison) Noland

My Aunt Bonnie will be missed. I have fond memories of learning how to play the piano at her home while babysitting me. She was a wonderful lady. May God strengthen you, her family, during this time of loss.
