Bonnie was a travel agent with Carlson Wagonlit Travel and was in the industry for 50 years. She was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Moline; and Saint Ignatius Loyola Catholic Church, Houston. Bonnie was a voracious reader and particularly enjoyed books about American history, politics, philosophy, world cultures, and cooking. She also dedicated time to gardening, cooking and baking (especially family heirloom recipes), home improvement, her pets, travel, telling stories, and finding small yet memorable ways to let her family know how much she loved them.
