This is really a shock. Bonnie was supposed to play bridge with us Monday afternoon. It wasn't like her to miss something. She was always so organized. I taught with her at Hayward. I will always remember her infectious smile and joking personality. She was dedicated to her job and to the students. She will certainly be missed by those of us who knew her. I hope there is a place for her to get a "hole in one" in Heaven!

I was so sorry to hear of Bonnie's death and my heart goes out to her family. Having taught with Bonnie at Hayward, I will always remember her with a smile on her face and a willingness to help in the library, on the computer, or whatever was needed. She will be missed.

I reconnected with Bonnie a few years ago after not having seen her since high school graduation in 1967. I visited her at her home last summer after our 50th alumni get together. We had a wonderful time reminiscing. Bonnie was a sweet, gracious lady. So sorry to hear of her sudden death.
