Bonnie was raised by her grandparents, David and Lucy Bicknell, and Jack Wallace. Bonnie and her husband Bill Knight were married in Meeker, Colorado in 1953. Upon his honorable discharge from the Air Force in 1953, they moved to Perry Florida. Bonnie worked as a cartographer for Proctor and Gamble where she helped transfer P&G’s over 500,000 acres of forestland from aerial photographs to paper maps the foresters used to identify the different types of terrain and trees the property contained, all by hand. When P&G sold to Foley Lands and Timber, they hired Bonnie. She retired after 35 years of service to the two companies. Bonnie and Bill have three sons, Russ, Scott, and Todd. Bonnie was a born again Christian with saving faith in Jesus Christ.
