On October 22, 1950, Bonita married James V. Huey, also of the Hamilton community. Together they farmed and raised their family in Hamilton where they were both active members of the Hamilton Missionary Baptist Church.

Bonita loved children. She taught Sunday School and Vacation Bible School and made sure her children, grandchildren, and nephews and nieces were able to attend. She cherished spending time with her sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews and later with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed her flowers and working in her yard. Like her mother, she shared many of her plants with relatives and friends. Collecting old glassware, restoring old things, and going on road trips with friends and family were among her favorite things. She also enjoyed the Grand Ole Opry, country and gospel music and family get-togethers. Her faith and family were the most important things in her life.

Bonita was a wonderful mother and wife and an amazing grandmother. She put others before herself and her lifetime service in helping others is a testimony to this. She will be remembered for her humility and grace and will be greatly missed by her children, Bonnie Brooks and Ray Huey; three grandchildren, Ashley, Kristin and Daniel; four great-grandchildren, Erin, Jack, Britton, and Brinlee; her brother, Mack, and many nieces and nephews.
