Bonnie sewed a lot of dresses for her little girl. As a family they traveled all over the United States, to Canada, Mexico and even Europe. Bonnie enjoyed reading her Bible as she was very religious which she learned at a young age as her grandfather Lawrence was an Anglican Minister from England.

Garland, Cameron and Ashlie Clark, Janelle Clark and her fiancé, John Gates, Trevor Clark and his fiancée, Elizabeth Eastman, and her beloved great-granddaughter, Eliona “Ellie” Clark.
