Bonnie was born on July 1, 1932 to the parents of Elmer and Mary (Johnston) Jontz in Rhodes, Iowa. She was one of four children to be raised by Elmer and Mary. Bonnie attended the Rhodes School and was a proud member of the graduating class of 1948. On April 10, 1950 Bonnie was united in marriage to Paul Trowbridge in Rhodes. The two would make their lives together in Rhodes and the surrounding area. Bonnie loved her town and was very active in the Rhodes Betterment Committee, and the Rhodes Alumni.
