Building Supervisor

Bonnie grew up in Morgantown and started attending SSUMC when she was only 7 years old. She met, married Robert and joined the Brethren Church until returning to Spruce Street, where she became a faithful member, joining the choir and playing the handbells. Bonnie was hired by Dr. Roger Smith as the Building Supervisor, where she has continued to open thousands of doors and make millions of cups of coffee. She loves being involved with the WVU Community Choir and acting in plays at the MAC. She has traveled extensively, visiting National Parks and state capitals, missing only Maine and Hawaii. Bonnie has a great passion for smiles, hugs and being helpful in any way she can. God continues to bless her with an abundant grace filled life.
