Bonnie Lue (Duke) Burton 11/17/1930 - 6/9/2022 On November 17, 1930, Bonnie Lue Duke got a round-trip ticket to the greatest adventure of lifetime with an open-ended return date. She was sent to Victor, Idaho, into the loving home of Virda Hatch and Bill Duke. She was the third of what would become a family of nine children: six girls and three boys.

Bonnie had the wanderlust from a young age and had many adventures in the shadow of the Teton mountains. From her home town of Victor, Idaho, she learned to work hard and play hard. But her feet would not stay still, and as a young woman she soon moved to the big City of Salt Lake where she worked for a jewelry store and a photography studio where her picture would grace the display window for Valentine's Day.
