From small town Minnesota, Bonnie’s immense talents took her to the Chicago Art Institute on a scholarship. In Chicago, she met Allan and they eloped. After marriage she became the head fashion artist at Sears. A consummate pianist, she played throughout her life – filling her homes with music. She painted innumerable portraits on commission. Her artistic legacy hangs lovingly in homes around the country
