Bonnie Elizabeth Holmes was born in Indianapolis, IN on July 20, 1935. She was the younger of two children born to the late Dorothy Pringle. Raised in Detroit and Belleville, MI, she graduated from Belleville High School, Class of 1952. She married Jesse Holmes, Jr. (now deceased) in December of 1956. They would eventually welcome three children into this union.
Bonnie was employed by the Wayne County Juvenile Court in Michigan, retiring after 25 years of service. She was an excellent seamstress, always sewing crocheting, and quilting beautiful items for her family and friends. Bonnie also enjoyed bowling (she participated in many bowling tournaments), solving crossword and jigsaw puzzles, traveling, and was an avid reader. She was a loving and dedicated mother, grandmother and friend, always embracing and caring for others in need. She was also a faithful and supportive member of Stone Mountain First United Methodist Church upon her move to Atlanta after retirement. God tenderly called her home on January 2, 2017 after a long and well-lived life.
She leaves to celebrate her life and to cherish her memory: her son, Phillip (Linda) Holmes; daughters Phyllis (Roderick) Frierson and Rochelle (Anthony) Morton; three grandsons, Gregory, Aaron, and Evan; four granddaughters, Kimberly, Shalyce, Lauryn and Jenelle, her dear cousin Ruth Shobe, and a host of great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, family and friends.
