Bonita attended and was a member of the Sardinia Bible Baptist Church where she played a supportive role in all she did. She also had a beautiful singing voice. Bonita enjoyed traveling and had visited 40 of the 50 states. Her favorite hobby was spending time with her family and friends. To her family she was at the center of every celebration. There was always something to celebrate with Bonita and she enjoyed hosting the birthday and graduation parties as well as any other celebratory occasions. The family called her house the party place and looked forward to the festivities. she also enjoyed a game of cards any chance she could…especially euchre. Bonitas cats were always a beloved part of her life. She spoiled them well. Minnie is missing her terribly. To her friends and work family, Bonita was also a wonderful and supportive friend. She loved her work family down through the years, and it was clear by the outpouring of visitors in her hospital room on the day of her passing that she was loved equally. What a gift she was to all of us! Bonita was born January 20, 1956 in Cincinnati, Ohio the daughter of the late Patricia Moore. She was also preceded in death by her grandmother Gertrude Young and uncle Charles Moore.

Bonita’s beautiful life was the end result of a beautiful soul. Her heart was tried and true. She was a warrior, an advocate for the needy and a faithful friend. As we share in our memories of Bonita, we begin to see a common theme. She loved us well. She made each of us feel important and cared for. Another important part of Bonitas life was her relationship with Jesus. To all who have that personal relationship with Jesus, we are not saying goodbye to Bonita today, only so long for now
