Bonnie loved flowers and was always looking for a new variety of Day Lillies. She enjoyed her trips to the Rose Bowl parades, seeing the beautiful floats and unusual flowers was always a special treat.
Like most everyone in South Pascagoula, she lost her home to Katrina. She was able to rebuild and spend her last days in a house built in part by Christian volunteers. They were a blessing to her and visited with her this past summer.

The family would like to thank Mrs. Ann Chatman, caregiver and friend for meeting Bonnie’s needs. We also would like to thank We Care Hospice for their end of life services and to O’Bryant-O’Keefe Funeral Home for their professionalism and special care for our family.
