She was raised in Leavenworth and graduated from Leavenworth High School. Following graduation, Bonnie attended Kansas State University.

On October 22, 1949, Bonnie married James S. Hobbs. After 56 years of marriage, he preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by her parents; two sisters, Marjory M. Crist and Jeanette R. Dickson; and a great grandchild, Aaden Grant Frederick.

She was my favorite aunt and while I was unable to see her as much as I would have liked, she will always be in my heart. Her memory will be cherished. She will be greatly missed. Love, Cindy

Ruth, Carol, Amy, and Stan -- I am so sorry for your loss. I always thought Bonnie was such a strong, independent woman and a great role model. We were lucky to have been around when we all had a "village" of mothers to look after all of us and Bonnie was definitely part of that village. It is really hard to lose your mother but also comforting to have so many wonderful memories of her. Know that I am thinking of you and giving you each a virtual hug!
