She served as an Organist, Primary Teacher, Librarian, and Relief Society teacher, Visiting Teacher and Visiting Teaching Coordinator. Bonnie was raised on a farm in Ucon, Idaho where she was taught the values of hard work, keeping your word, the importance of paying tithing and a love for family. She taught these values to her children and grandchildren by her example. She loved life and at the center of her life was her family. She was an excellent homemaker. She kept a beautiful and immaculate home. Her cooking skills were unsurpassed much to the delight of her family. No one made better bread, cinnamon rolls, pies and hand dipped chocolates. She enjoyed cooking for her family. She put a lot of love in preparing meals for Sunday dinners, birthdays and Holidays. She was a skilled seamstress and created countless articles of clothing and treasured heirloom needlework pieces. She was passionate about music and encouraged her family to develop their talents. She played the piano beautifully. She had a fondness for learning new things and reading. She was an Idaho girl and looked forward to summers at her home on the Snake River in Swan Valley amongst her brothers and sisters whom she adored. They spent their days visiting, canning and planning family get-togethers. One summer was spent writing a Family Cookbook to preserve their Mothers and Grandmothers recipes. The “Family Cookbook” is a treasure. She was proud of her heritage and made a valiant effort to further the cause of her family history records. She has been an outstanding example of loving as our Savior does. Her legacy is one of service, charity and love. We want to thank all those who cared for our Mother in her last hours.
