Bonnie was a Polio Survivor, she had Polio in 1944 at the age of 18 months; she was a true inspiration to her fellow human beings because of her “I can beat this attitude”. She did beat it until 1989 when she was diagnosed with Post-Polio Syndrome and even then she always maintained her loving and caring attitude.  Her nieces and nephews were especially important to her.

She was blessed with a beautiful singing voice; her great love for music was country western. She performed professionally in the Seattle area for a time in the 1970’s. She also loved to travel and see new things.

She will be missed by all who knew her, but she is still with us in our hearts and minds so she is not really gone.

    Bonnie is,and will be missed! If there is any good news,it is that she will no longer suffer, the discomfort of her Post-Polio. But what a fighter, I am so proud to be related to this \Titan\ of a woman, she didn’t even know how to give up!! Yet to sit with and visit, one would never know how hard she was fighting!
    Her gentle spirit and warm demeanor were only outdone by her generosity!! Yes my big Sister,you are,and will be missed!
