May 18, 1953 — November 27, 2022

Bonita Lee May, better know to most as Bonnie, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Sunday, November 27, 2022 in Waldron, Arkansas with loved ones by her side. Bonnie was born May 18, 1953 in Freeport, Illinois to Silas Lee Hermann and Lois Fay Hermann. She was 69 years old.

Bonnie was married to the love of her life, Robert May for 48 years. When Bonnie was younger she loved to ride horses and go on trail rides. She enjoyed camping with her sister on any lake but was partial to the serenity and beauty on Shoal Bay. She was fearless and not afraid to conquer anything that came her way. A true go getter and always up for an adventure.  Bonnie worked for many years at Wal-Mart and was a department manager when she retired. She made a great number of life long friends who became like family. With a million dollar smile and a warm heart she cherished her family and treasured the time they spent together.

Bonnie leaves behind to cherish her memory, her loving husband Robert May, one son, Travis May and wife Kandis, her mother, Lois Hermann all of Waldron, Arkansas, two sisters, Karen Rankin (Wayne) of Barling, Arkansas and Sandy Hermann of Jonesboro, Arkansas. Granny will forever remain in the hearts of her grandchildren: Raegan Parker, Trey Slater, Seth Slater and Tyler Trozzi as well as 4 great grandchildren. Bonnie will be missed by all that knew her and the many whose lives she impacted including a host of extended family and friends she held dear to her heart.
