Bonnie Lou Hull, daughter of Peter C. and Ella Mae (Scott) Christensen, Sr., was born in Avoca, Iowa on Oct. 15, 1940.
She attended Lincoln School, El Dorado Junior High and High School through the 10th grade. Bonnie left to begin her married life. She lived in Missouri, California and Kansas before settling in central Kansas. Bonnie spent her working life as a cook for others which continued into her later years. She loved to cook, bake and garden, which she shared with everyone she knew. Bonnie eventually moved to Nebraska, sharing her great love of family and the fruits of her labors with all her friends at Crossroads Court, where she loved her squirrels. Bonnie was quite proud of the fact she earned her G.E.D. at the age of 55.
Bonnie loved to be outdoors in the garden and if she grew it, she shared it. When the weather was nice you would find her out walking for exercise or visiting and picking on her dear friends and family. Bonnie’s humor was contagious. If you weren’t smiling when you met her, you were when you left her. If you were sad, she gave you a smile and a hug. If you were hurt she would help with whatever you needed. If you were hungry, she would feed you. Sometimes she would feed you even if you weren’t hungry. Bonnie would give her last penny to make someone else’s life easier. Her friends meant the world to her. Bonnie’s family and grandchildren were her pride and joy.
She was preceded in death by her parents; son, Ted Harker; daughter, Teresa Braught de Zavala; sisters, Peggy JoAnn Andrews and Sonja Walker; brother, James Allen Christensen; brothers-in-law, Richard Barker and Bill Walker; previous husbands, Ted Harker and Roy Braught; nephew, Larry Barker and niece, Carla Haines.
Survivors include her three daughters, Cheryl Carey of Oklahoma, Angela Worley of Hastings and Joyce Hansen of Marquette; son, Sandy Hull of El Dorado, Kan.; 16 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, Pete Christensen of Wichita, Kan. and two sisters, Bernice Hamilton of Baycliff, Texas and Carolyn Barker of El Dorado, Kan.
