Cremated, ashes given to her daughter Julie Ferguson of Maitland, FL~ Bonnie was the daughter of Virgina G. Rodgers and Sgt Alva M. Rodgers, he passed away in a Japanese War Camp and is buried in the PI at Manila~ Virgina met and married George L. Brown when Bonnie was 5 years old~they are both deceased and buried at Jacksonville Memorial Gardens in Orange Park, FL~ They were married 40+ years when George passed away~ Bonnie died of lung cancer, over 40 years of smoking had taken a toll on her, she tried to quit so many times, and was unable to do so. Bonnie was a long time vict/spouse abuse, many beatings, her hair pulled out of her head, house set on fire, she had no peace on earth, back then the police did not come out and arrest anyone, when she had the chance to leave Florida she did and never came back to live here. Bonnie was employed by BCBS in Dallas for many years, prior to that she was a model for tall womens fashions, she also modeled the Ms. America Dresses for several years, she truly was a beautiful woman, the years of abuse led to her smoking, She smoked herself to death, her nerves were shattered, she actually shook constantly. The one peace in Bonnies Life...she loved horses and spent many hours riding, it was her escape from the reality of her painful life, if her horse were still alive today (Gypsy) I ride one last ride for her in honor of her life and those she loved~ I know its hard to say but I am glad to know she is at peace with God now and no one can ever hurt her again~

Celeste, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your big heart and care~God Bless you and your family~
