Bonnie grew up in Houma, Louisiana. She graduated from St. Francis de Sales Catholic School which at that time was across the street from her family home. She was a member of the St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church Choir and St. Bernadette Catholic Church choir.
She was a member of the Sodality of Mary since her middle school days. Bonnie's devotion to the Blessed Mother was exhibited by her continued membership in the Catholic Daughter Chapters in every parish she lived.
Bonnie worked at the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office and later for Louisiana Power and Light for 25 years. She began work with LP&L in the Montegut office and then worked in the Houma and Gretna offices. Her official title was District Accounting Supervisor.
She retired in 1983 and moved with Buck from New Orleans, to Houston, and then to Midland, Texas. When Buck retired, they moved to Baton Rouge, LA and became very active in St. Patrick Catholic Church parish. Bonnie was involved in many Church activities, including Altar Society and KC Ladies Auxiliary for which she served as Treasurer many years.
Bonnie loved to travel and see God's beautiful world. Wherever she visited, Bonnie created many friendships. She was blessed to have seen most of the world.
Bonabel, "Force of Nature" that she was, lived a full and vibrant life with an outgoing personality. Her smile and infectious laugh helped make every day a pleasure. She leaves behind a wealth of knowledge and experience which she passed on to her family. She will be missed by all who knew her.

I hope Bonnie is setting up the dominoes up there so we can play chickenfoot when I get there. I will let you win sometime. Will miss all the happy times and lunches we shared. You could always light up my life. You will always be in my daily prayers, my dear friend.

I will forever treasure our memories of Miss Bonnie. When she was in the room the smiles were brighter and the laughs bigger. She had the most precious smile. I treasure memories of her dancing with Mr Buck at my wedding so many years ago. Their love is inspirational and I know he was waiting at the gate to welcome her home We will be planting trees on our acreage in the name of our Miss Bonnie Love to you all

My deepest sympathy for the passing of y'all Mom. I will always remember Ms. Bonnie and Mr. Buck from our trip to Amsterdam. Such a pleasure to be with both of them. We had a wonderful time. Two wonderful people!
