In 1987 Bonnie met and married the love of her life, Donald F. Moore. Together, they lived and traveled all over the United States. They forged long lasting friendships everywhere they went. She and Don loved antiques and searching for them at various auctions and antique shops throughout the South. Bonnie had a keen sense of style and made every home look like a feature from a designer magazine.
Bonnie loved animals and had a tender heart towards any (and every) animal in need. She cherished her dogs Kasey and Sammy. They laid by her side, bringing never ending love, support and protection to her throughout her debilitating disease.
Bonnie loved being a Nana and was so proud of her grandchildren. She was always happy to see them and greet them with a hug and a kiss.
