Though she had various jobs after high school, once she began working the healthcare field, she found her place. She moved and remained in Poplar Bluff, MO where she raised her beloved children and spent her free time with her parents and siblings who were dear to her. Bonnie retired after a 20+ year career as an LPN for the former Lucy Lee Hospital. She enjoyed telling stories about her time as an aide and an LPN. In her retirement she worked as an LPN for a local facility for special needs children. Bonnie’s other interests and hobbies included flowers, fresh garden tomatoes, travel in the U.S., dancing, singing to her grandkids, watching wrestling and westerns and putting puzzles together. Bonnie will be fondly remembered and greatly missed for her kindness, laughter, sense of humor, being down to earth, a hard worker and willing to do anything for those she loved.
