Bonnie June (Lovett) Webb was born May 12, 1931, on a farm near Sterling, Oklahoma to Walter and Rena Lovett. She attended Sterling Schools where she graduated in 1949. After graduating, Bonnie lived in Lawton where she worked at Southwest Bell Telephone Company. She married Glendon Webb on March 9, 1951. They began their family in Duncan, Oklahoma where Bonnie was always involved in her children's activities as a Brownie and Girl Scout Leader. In 1963 the family moved to her family's farm outside of Sterling where she lived until her death. She was a hard worker spending many hours in her garden and helping at her husband's machine shop. Bonnie and Glendon were active members of the Duncan Antique Car Club. After Glendon's death in 1979, she and her son continued the business for another year. While living in Sterling Bonnie worked at Flowers, Etc. in Elgin and was a member of the Arts & Craft Club of Sterling, The Town and Country Club, United Methodist Women's Group, and the Sterling United Methodist Church. She spent many enjoyable hours sewing, doing arts and crafts, and collecting antiques. Bonnie loved to travel. She visited her children when they lived in Washington DC, Colorado, and Texas. Her adventures included visiting her sister in Florida and their subsequent road trips camping their way back to Oklahoma. She and one of her childhood friends traveled to the Philippines and to Alaska.
