Bonnie dedicated her life to raising their children and making a home for her family. As a loving mother, Bonnie could commonly be found working from the kitchen baking, cooking, and canning for her family. As a gifted seamstress, she also dearly enjoyed sewing, quilting, and crafting many beloved gifts that her family will cherish for years to come. Bonnie and her husband Dale were instrumental in starting the Farm City Hub Club in New Ulm. To socialize, she loved sharing laughs with friends in various card clubs over the years.
