Bonnie’s life began June 23, 1940 in Benton Harbor.  She grew up in Coloma, graduating from Coloma High School.  Bonnie worked for many years at K-Wood Products, she will be most remembered for her years of waiting on people at Max’s Place and T’s Tap both in Coloma.  Bonnie also owned First Impressions Tanning Salon in Watervliet for many years.  When Bonnie wasn’t working you could find her enjoying herself as a member of Kathy’s Clowns, traveling, reading newspapers, completing puzzles, cooking, baking, and playing computer games.  Bonnie especially loved being outdoors mowing her lawn or spending time in her garden.
