Bonnie Lee Lashley was called by her precious Lord to her heavenly home where she joined her husband Melvin and son, Thomas on September 29, 2015, at the age of 94 years and 8 months, surrounded by her loving family. Bonnie Lee was born to Thomas Jefferson Sanford and Minnie Ola Huggins Sanford on January 25, 1921. Bonnie was the youngest of thirteen children and the last surviving. She was born on the family farm in Bells (Grayson County), Texas where she attended grade school and Bells Senior High School. Bonnie Lee met the love of her life, Melvin Lee Lashley at the young age of sixteen years, they married on November 27, 1937 and celebrated sixty-seven and one half years of marriage. During World War II, the Texas 36th National Guard Division was mobilized and Bonnie followed Melvin to Camp Bowie in Brownwood, Texas.
