In addition, all of her poker/bingo playing, casino hopping friends that she loved so much.
Bonnie retired from the Desert Museum, a job she truly loved. She loved playing bingo, poker and loved her trips to Laughlin and Las Vegas; where she sure had a knack of winning.
Spending times with her friends and family were truly the most enjoyable times for her. She was the type of person that made lifelong friends immediately – all of which were considered lucky to have met her.
She will be missed for her big heart, joking nature and her strong will.
A Celebration of her Life will be held at a later date.
We all love you and will see you one day in God’s Great Kingdom.
