My mother, Lucille’s older sister, Bonnie Hutchinson lived her whole life in Delaware County Oklahoma. She left the family farm in Euchie, married her husband Bus, moved to Jay and they raised their 4 children there. Bonnie worked many years at the drug store in Jay. She was a homemaker, dressmaker, quilt maker, and an excellent cook. She always had a smile on her face and she dearly loved my mama. We all loved to visit Aunt Bonnie and Uncle Bus. We loved to wake up to breakfast at Aunt Bonnie’s because she would greet us with that infectious smile and serve us pancakes with chocolate syrup.
