Bonnie was born in Sarnia on April 19, 1942. She went to Central Collegiate in Sarnia. She worked in Ottawa for CUPE and the Postal Workers Union, as one of their bookkeepers before returning to Sarnia in the 1980’s, where she worked for TD Canada Trust for 16 years until her retirement. Bonnie was always very active in her church, Trinity Anglican where she became a part of the Outreach Mission, served on the Parish Council and then was a Lay delegate to Synod. Later she served on the Diocesan Council and was elected Lay Co-Chair for Lambton Deanery.
