Ms. Bonnie had a great love for her family. She loved to be with them and planned many occasions to get together. Everything she cooked was good, tea cakes and biscuits were her specialties. Being outside tending to her yard and planting flowers had been hobbies through the years, as well as quilting and watching Gunsmoke. Although she had been unable to attend church services for many years, she loved the Lord, and you could often listen to her praying. Bro Hagee Ministries was her favorite to listen to, and Psalm 23 was her favorite scripture.

Sanderson; parents, John William Cumberland, and Tina Elizabeth Bozeman Cumberland; sons, Roy Sanderson, Jasper Sanderson; sisters, Sara Burt, Wynell Tolbert, Christine Burns, Martha Herrington; brothers, Jack, Bill, Bob, Jesse, and Ronald Cumberland; granddaughter, Jessica Nicole Sanderson.
