After a divorce, Bonnie met the love of her life, Loren Dunn. In 1974 they bought a house and moved to Boulder Creek, CA. and married shortly after. Bonnie loved the mountains and the ocean. Her love for the outdoors inspired her to become a photographer. She photographed many weddings, and hundreds of landscapes and sunsets. She also loved working with seniors. She worked as the Director of Oak Tree Villa in Scotts Valley for many years, and eventually retired as the Director of the assisted living for seniors at Park Lane in Monterey. Bonnie had lots of friends, many of whom she had known since elementary school. She liked to laugh, loved to talk and most of all have a good time. In 2010 Bonnie bought her dream home in Lake Shastina, CA, hoping to live the rest of her life looking at her beloved mountain, Mt. Shasta. In 2017 after being diagnosed with Dementia her family moved her back to Santa Cruz County so she would be close to family and be safe. She lived at De Un Amor in Corralitos up until June 1, 2020 then moved to Valley Convalescent Hospital in Watsonville. She received the absolute best care at both places.
