Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Psalm 62:5.

She was born on August 23, 1937 in Cass County, Texas to her parents, A.I. and Azelle Chamblee Roberts.

Bonnie graduated from McLeod High School in 1955 where she met her future husband.
After graduating she moved to Dallas to begin her long career in the insurance field and landed her first job at Fidelity Union Life.
Subsequently she became executive secretary to the CEO. She worked at several insurance companies through the years after moving back home to Cass County.
Until her health made it impossible, Bonnie was a faithful member of Good Exchange Baptist Church, McLeod, Texas.
She loved her family dearly. A strong woman, she seemed to not be afraid or intimidated by anyone or anything.
