Bonnie (and Woody) taught me leadership skills as a CTC at camp 1970-1971. I met Sandy Eubanks at camp and am so happy we were married in 2018 (47 years later). Camp Paluxy was a wonderful, life experience thanks to Bonnie and her family. I still sing the songs learned there to my grandchildren. Thank you for the life lessons and Christian values presented at camp. Bonnie leaves a legacy. God bless y'all Regina, Teresa, Lyndell, and family. Thanks for the memories!

Sorry - misspelled Rugene's and Lyndal's names. I blame old age and the pandemic. Norma

I remember Mrs. Wood from Camp Paluxy in Bluff Dale since I grew up around Bluff Dale and from SHS. She encouraged me to take up Number Sense for the UIL competitions, and I still use those skills today. So sad to hear of her passing, I will always remember how much she helped me.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family.
