Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Bonnie Dean Goddard Gardner, age 69, passed away peacefully at her home in Jackson, Georgia on June 21, 2020. She was born October 8th,1950 along with her twin sister Donnie, to Willam Thomas (WT) and Louise Goddard. She came from a large, loving family. They lived in Stone Mountain, GA. Although Bonnie moved around and made great friends wherever she went, she always considered Stone Mountain home.
Bonnie, also known as “Mom” and “Granny Bonnie,” is survived by her children: Valerie and Randall Clark, Tina and Jeff Stone, Captain Robert Bryan and April Hicks; grandchildren: Brittany, Tiffany, Andria, Ansley, Aiden, Avry, Katie, Emma and Logan; great-grandchildren: Michelle, Bella, Lily, Eli and Jonah; siblings: twin sister Donnie, Barbara, Paulette, Carol, Ann and Bobby.
Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents: WT and Louise Goddard; her husband: John Gardner; Brother: Ted; Sister: Susie; and several other family members. I am sure they were all waiting at the Gates of Heaven to welcome her in! She was a Woman of God! She knew God was going to heal her either here on Earth or in Heaven. To anyone that knew Bonnie, there is no doubt she is in Heaven enjoying her riches.
Bonnie loved God, her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, sisters, brother, church families, Stone Mountain classmates, friends and too many nieces and nephews to count. She was definitely her kids, grands and great-grands biggest fan!! She always had an encouraging word and a smile for everyone! If you had the pleasure of meeting Bonnie, you are better for having known her. She could talk for hours about God or herbs and gardening or many other subjects. She was an avid reader and we estimate she had at least 5,000 books.
Bonnie is loved and missed by all who knew her.
Her family will have a Celebration of Life on July 31st from 1pm-3pm at Bonnie’s home church, Rock Springs Church, 219 Rock Springs Rd, Milner, GA 30257. We welcome and hope to hear lots of great stories about Bonnie’s life!!
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Rock Springs Church (770-229-8663) in Bonnie’s name.
