Bonnell “Bonnie” Ratterree, daughter of the late David and Jesse (Chaffin) McGinnis, was born September 11, 1931, in Ozark, Missouri, and departed this life November 30, 2018, at her home in Douglas County, Missouri. Bonnie was 87 years, 2 months, and 19 days of age.

Bonnie grew up in the Vanzant community and later moved to Ontario, California, where she graduated high school. She married Robert Ratterree on October 15, 1951 in Salem, Arkansas. They raised four children.
