On April 8, 2011 in Ormond Beach, FL our world lost one of its truly kind and gentle citizens.

Born to Pansy P. and Millard F. Bumgarner in Wilkes County, NC on July 23, 1919, Bonnie attended the Medical College of Virginia School of Nursing and was a Registered Nurse. She married Frederick E. Lewis of Winston-Salem, NC and had two children, Frederick E. Lewis Jr. and Susan L. Bamford.

She was kind to people and animals, enjoyed gardening and was an avid jigsaw puzzler with her friend and "guardian angel" Chanda Drummond. She also did volunteer work at the hospital and the Pinkadilly Thrift Shop.

Many thanks to Hospice and Karen Oglesby's team for making her last days comfortable.

Bonnie is survived by her children and sisters, Iris Carol Pitts and Flora Friend.

She was preceded in death by her husband and sisters, Olive Prevette and Pauline Cannon and brothers, M. F. Bumgarner Jr. and George Bumgarner.

Her ashes will be buried by her husband's ashes at Salem Cemetery in Winston-Salem, NC

Bonnie was the kindest and best of people. Her cooking was always superb and her home spotlessly clean. She will be sorely missed by all priviledged to know her. God bless. All our love,
- Pamela
