Bonnie was married and divorced from Calvin Levy Awbrey, a 1965 classmate.  They both had remarried but had three sons born in their marriage.  Bonnie passed away eleven days after Calvin.  Sadly their oldest son, Calvin Levis Awbrey III was killed in an oilfield accident on July 18, 2013 when he was overcome by H2S gas and fell from a tank battery just west of Kermit.
