She served the firm well as a legal assistant and later as firm administrator. Bonnie was universally loved and respected and brought an unmatched work ethic and example to everything she did. Her bright smile and calm demeanor made her a leader among the staff members at the Firm. Her faith and caring attitude set an example for everyone who had the pleasure of interacting with her. Even after retirement, Bonnie visited the Firm often and remained in contact with her many close friends at Oliver Maner. She will be missed but never forgotten. Please remember Bonnie’s husband, Roy, as well as their sons Shannon and Michael and families, including three grandchildren in your prayers.
