Aunt Bonnie married Kimoth Howard Bilbrey Nov. 1 1935 in Clay County Tennessee. She had 2 daughters Sophrona Mae Bilbrey, and Margaret Howard(Bilbrey) Conner . She has 2 grandsons and 1 granddaughter. Bonnie was a Elementary Teacher in McMinnville Tennessee she loved to cook and sew, she was a good christian lady she loved children . But even tho her husband Kimoth was a farmer and grew cattle she was always scared of the cows . She was one of about nine syblings ,her father was Thomas Benton Huddleston and her mother was Sophrona Ellen (Zackery) Huddleston.
I always loved to go to Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Kimoths farm to visit. She was a very loving woman ,and a really good country cooker too.
At Christmas time she would send our family some cute poem she made up sometimes for each of our kids or maybe for one of either George or I . She passed away thirteen days before my Fatherinlaw Earl Delon Bilbrey same month and year.
Life is but a stopping place,
A pause in what's to be,
A resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.
We all have different journeys,
Different paths along the way,
We all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay...
Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord.
A very Big Thankyou to Tracy for putting the pic of Bonnies' headstone in her interment.
And a very Big Thankyou to James Hill.He sent me Aunt Bonnie's obit to put in her interment.

A mother's love is forever. It begins before we can even remember...and it creates a feeling of comfort, warmth, and happiness that can never be forgotten. Thank you, to all Moms, for showing us the true meaning of love.|
