Born in South River, NJ, Bonnie found immense joy in her family, her friends, and the simple pleasures of life. She was a nurturing soul who raised her children in the close-knit community of Milltown, NJ. During her professional journey, Bonnie worked with dedication at Personal Products.
In her leisure moments, Bonnie's heart soared with joy as she watched the delicate butterflies flutter by, their wings ablaze with color. She marveled at the graceful dance of the dragonflies, their bodies shimmering in the sunlight. She had a passion for spending quality time with her friends and family.
On holiday, Bonnie’s meals were always special. She would carefully select the ingredients and prepare the dishes with love. She wanted each meal to be a celebration of life and love. She found joy in the little things—watching her favorite shows like Wheel of Fortune and indulging in playful games on her computer.
In her later years, Bonnie found her way to the sunny shores of St. Petersburg, FL, where she shared precious moments with her sister, Patricia, soaking in the warmth of the sun and the love of family.
