GASTONIA - Bonnie Mae Wilson Hammonds, 91, passed away peacefully on Nov. 6, 2018, surrounded by her loving family at her residence.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Odell Hammonds; her children, Odell, Jr., Otis, William, Tommy and grandson, Dennis Hammonds.

She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister and friend who will be greatly missed. Bonnie had the strongest faith and loved going to church.
