  1. Bonnie Jean’s Family, you have our heartfelt condolences. One of the highlights of my growing up years at Latexo High School was when Bonnie Jean and Mary Lou came to homecomings in the old gym and I got to play volleyball with them…They were nothing short of awesome…and would tear us up…We haven’t visited in years, but I have never forgotten her. She was also a lovely young woman…great memories of your family. Bobbie, my little sister, and Alvin were always fighting…she was littler than him, but that did not matter…if he hit her on the head with his pencil, she was going to fly into him. Rest in Peace, Bonnie Jean. We miss you already.

  2. So sorry for yalls loss. I have known her all my life. She was always very nice and sweet lady. My thoughts and Prayers are with all the family.

  3. Rest in peace! You have been and will always be missed..

  5. Praying for strength and peace during this time. Many fond memories of Bonnie, Patrica Northcutt, and my sister June Sholars.

  6. So sorry for your loss. Bonnie will be in our hearts forever. Whenever we have our kids and family all together we often reminisce about the many times when our babies were little and they would sneak next door to see our wonderful neighbors Bonnie & Chuck. Even to this day even though we moved further away they send special cards that remind us how special they are to us.The kids will always remember having cookies with Bonnie. Love you both.

  7. I will always have the fond memories of spending summers at Aunt Bonnie’s and Uncle Chuck’s House. Kara and I cooked, learned to sew, swimmming, and even typing on a typewriter… those were good days. Rest In Peace Aunt Bonnie.

  8. Aunt Bonnie is in some of my favorite memories such great summers and the wonderful holidays with her. Know the mark she has left is a great one and of this she’ll be greatly missed. My deepest condolences to you Uncle Chuck.

  9. There are no words to describe this most wonderful person that ever came into my life, dearest Bonnie Kerr.
    Bonnie, had the quickest and most humorous mind I have ever had the privilege of knowing and I will truly miss her. Her soft southern kindness was unmatchable. She was so contagious with her humor and laughter that it made you forget your own problems whatever they were. I’m sure she touched all of your hearts just as she did ours with love and found memories. I was honored to be at her side in her last moments of life and to hold her hand as she left us all. I could not stand to see you laid in the cold ground so I said, my farewell at the hospital to you. Go in peace my dearest Bonnie as God in heaven and all your family are awaiting you with open and loving arms. I will miss you dearest Bonnie with all my heart and love forever until we see one another once again. Amen. Love, James & Elisa Wilson

  10. Ronnie and I are both so terribly sorry for your loss of Bonnie, she was always so sweet. We still remember the fun times we had together many years ago. I hope time will lessen your grief, the memories you cherish will last forever. I’m sure God has a special place for Bonnie, because she was special.
