They started their first ranch in Florissant, CO, in 1959 and later settled in Rush, CO, in 1974 where Bonnie lived until her passing. She and Dale loved to dance and were regular fixtures at many of the local community dances. The two also belonged to the Eagles Club where they polka danced together for many years. Bonnie worked several years as a CNA at the Good Samaritan Nursing Home in Simla where she dedicated herself to the care of the elderly in her community. Bonnie loved to buy and refinish antiques.
