Bonnie Faye Jones-Gentry

April 14, 1974 — May 4, 2024

Bonnie Gentry was born on April 14, 1974 in Nashville, Tennessee to loving parents Dawn Jones and Leonard Jones.  She gained her wings and entered eternal life on Saturday, May 4, 2024 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Bonnie was educated in the Metropolitan Nashville Davidson County School System where she graduated from Pearl Cohn High School.  She accepted Christ in her life and fellowshipped with Friendship Missionary Baptist Church until her passing.

Bonnie loved being with family, regardless the occasion.  She enjoyed making memories, bingo, spades, and being invited on the road in someone’s passenger seat.  She had a contagious laugh and a smile that could make you smile.  Holidays and family gatherings won’t be the same not hearing “come take a picture with me” because that was her favorite thing to do.  She was mama to many, a best friend to a few, and always a shoulder to anyone.  Her arms were always open and heart always full.
