She is survived by her husband of 29 years, Seth; stepmother, Shirley Roberts; brother, Ken Roberts and Pat; sister, Dale Baber; stepsister, Lisa Wright and Donald; lifelong friends Kristi Lane and Greg; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Bonnie was born and raised in Varina and graduated from Chickahominy Academy in 1978. She graduated from Virginia Tech in 1982 with a BS in marketing and a minor in English. She later earned an MBA from The University of Richmond.
With her creative talents Bonnie excelled as a Product Developer for Colonial Williamsburg and later managed her own company specializing in design of children’s educational products for 18th-Century museums.

She loved cooking and entertaining with friends and family and she had a special flair for writing about life’s events.
