Bonnie Married the Love of her life on the first day of spring March 21,1953 into the Morren clan.
She lived in the Vicksburg area since 1962 with the exceptions of 1967. They moved to Milwood while the farm was being renovated. Later they moved to Fulton MI to restore a turn of the century home from 1972-1979. Before Bob and Bonnie retired to their home in Florida in 1986 they built a new home on their favorite street in Vicksburg "W" ave. Fun fact:
They lived in 4 different addresses on "W" ave.as Vicksburg residents.
In everything she did, it is easy to see that Bonnie's passion was to glorify and honor the Lord she loved. She was a kindhearted woman who was loving and compassionate toward everyone she met. A devoted wife and mother. She enjoyed baking, cooking and opening their home to family and friends. Of course she did have a few mishaps over the years. Bob would always tease saying "If it is brown it's cooking, when it is black it's done!!
Another of Bonnie's tallents was her love for singing in church and could be found singing old hymns around the house. very much enjoyed by all.
Bonnie was also a excellent seamstress, which many relatives loved that she magically knew how to make their clothes fit. Later the Nieces and Nephews found out Bonnie had learned the sizes from their mothers. When Bonnie's only son was about 4
he asked why she hadn't made him any dresses like she had done for his 2 sisters and many girl cousins. Bonnie quickly learned how to make sturdy Boy clothes.
