Bonnie is survived by: her daughters, Rachel (Mike, deceased) Pagliaro, and Barbara (Ken) Daugherty; her granddaughters, Melissa Hackel and Christina (Bob) Burns; and her four great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by: her mother and father, George and Gertrude Jones; brother, Les Jones; sister-in-law, Ruth Ann Jones; and grandson, Michael Daugherty.
