She then went on to earn a degree in hotel/restaurant management from Paul Smith College. She worked in group sales at the Holiday Inn/Lake Placid Resort Crowne Plaza for the majority of her career.

Bonnie was known as a woman with a generous heart, she was always willing to give more than she received. Bonnie brought joy to others with her kindness and sense of humor, she loved her family and friends dearly and she will be missed and remembered as her life lives on through those who knew her.
