Bonnie Lea Montgomery of Waco, Texas passed away on July 13, 2020 and went to meet her Lord and Savior at the age of 87. Funeral services will be 10 a.m. Friday, July 17th at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, with Ernie Christie officiating, followed by burial at Oakwood Cemetery in Waco. Visitation will be one hour prior to funeral service, starting at 9 a.m. on Friday at the funeral home.

Bonnie was born July 8, 1933 in Aldrich, Missouri to Howard H. Akins and Norma West Akins and grew up on a farm. She married Guy Creighton Montgomery on November 25, 1953 in Bolivar, Missouri. She attended Draughon Business College in Springfield, Missouri which prepared her for a secretarial career, as she completed 33 years of service for Texas Farm Bureau, retiring in 1995. While living in Nebraska when Guy was in the Air Force, Michael Wade was born in 1961. Bonnie was a Christian wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She was a faithful member of the Church of Christ. She was an excellent cook, an avid reader, did beautiful embroidery and loved her family deeply. She was unselfish and a friend to all. Bonnie will be greatly missed.

Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents; a half-sister, Mary Ellen Dicus; sister, Dixie Akins; and husband, Guy Montgomery.

Left to cherish her memory is her sister, Jane Hammer and husband Darrell of Raytown, Missouri; son, Michael Montgomery and wife Becky of Lorena; grandson, Marc Montgomery and wife Jamie of Lorena; great-grandsons, Kesler and Landon Montgomery; along with numerous nieces, nephews, and friends, including “adopted” daughter, Marlu Duncan and husband Jay.

The family would like to thank the staff at St. Catherine’s for exceptional care the past 8 months, and personal friend Chris Conner for keeping us well-informed during the pandemic.

In lieu of flowers, per her request, donations may be made to Foster’s Home for Children in Stephenville, Texas, Cherokee Home for Children in Cherokee, Texas or the church library at Lake Shore Drive Church of Christ in Waco.

To the Montgomery Family,
I just watched the sweet memorial video of Bonnie. I have fond memories of Bonnie and her smile and her laugh. Thinking of all of you at this time.

I am so sorry for your loss. Bonnie was the epitome of a Christiian. I don''t ever recall meeting her when she didn't have a smile on her face or a kind word to offer. Of course you know that. Bonnie and Guy had a wonderful marriage. In fact, when I think of Bonnie I think of Guy and vice versa. We all will have to leave this earth one day, and when we do, our hope is that others will think of us fondly and try to emulate our lives. I know for certain that Bonnie left that legacy!
