She worked as a bartender and volunteered lots with hot breakfast days and other events. She also loved to spend her time on the patio surrounded by friends. Bonnie was known for being a performer. From skits she came up with herself to just dressing up and heading to the mall to get some laughs. She was always up for anything. Bonnie also drove for The Grimsby Junior C Peach Kings, where she said her love for hockey grew from. You could catch her out cheering on any of her favourite teams : Toronto Maple Leafs, Philadelphia Eagles, Hamilton Tiger-Cats She also had such a love for music. From concert halls to her kitchen floor, she was always dancing and rocking along to something. Bonnie has a strong love for her dog Charger.

Bonnie will be most missed for her contagious laugh and energy she brought to all situations in her life. Donations to Sick Kids Hospital or Jurvavinski Cancer Centre would be appreciated and if desired can be made through the funeral home, (905)957-7031
