Bonnie Elizabeth Adams began her life in Aiken, SC on October 9, 1952 to the late Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Adams (Margaret Cook Nichols Adams). After the passing of her mother, she was reared in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Edwin C. Adams (Rena). She earned her degree as a surgical technician at Anderson College and went straight into the workforce at Newberry Memorial Hospital. She then moved to Columbia, SC where she was a regional manager over five states for the American Red Cross Tissue Services. Bonnie was an employee of the Newberry Opera House at the time of her passing where she enjoyed her job and all of her co-workers and acquaintances. Bonnie loved all of God's creatures small and large. She revered her eight cats and four dogs with love and compassion.
With her time ending on this earth on September 13, 2015, she fought her short battle of lung cancer with hope, courage and dignity.
