Bonnie Watson of Salem, Missouri was born November 24, 1946 in St. James, Missouri to William Wade and Molly Virginia Britton Watson and passed away Sunday December 13, 2020 at the age of 74 years.
Bonnie was a fun person to be around. She was always happy and the first one to tell a joke and to light up the room. She loved to crochet, make items out of plastic canvas and to quilt. Bonnie loved her crafts but her true blessing was giving her creations away, her heart was happiest when she could give her talents to someone else.
She was preceded in death by her parents, William Wade and Molly Watson; brothers, Jimmie Watson and Dale Watson; sisters, Mae Dixon and Geraldine Watson; sister-in-law, Sharon Watson; and brother-in-law, Jerry “Pug” Hanks.
