Bonorden

January 12, 1933. On this day a little girl was born. Charlotte Edwards Bonorden was born to Robert E. Edwards and Mable Wilson Edwards in Kerrville, Texas.

Her momma died when Charlotte was only nine years old and, therefore, she was raised along with her sister, Grace, and brother, Ray, by their father with the help of her grown sister, Mary Leola. They lived off the Paige Highway behind the Bastrop State Park.

Charlotte had five children of her own who she often referred to as her greatest accomplishments. She raised her children to know and trust her Momma's Savior, Jesus Christ.

When she graduated in 1982 she became a Long-Term Care Licensed Administrator serving in that capacity for 18 years until retiring in 2000 at the age of 67.

She never met a stranger. Unashamed of her Savior, she often shared Him with whoever would listen. Hard headed and independent she will be remembered and loved for her feisty personality, fierce faith in God, and love for her children.

She lived to see 15 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren and 3 great great-grandchildren who called her GG.
