Gallatin

Mrs. Bonnie Leigh Minton Chandler, age 94 of Gallatin, TN, passed away gracefully and filled with peace on September 10, 2022 surrounded by her family.  Bonnie was born October 11, 1927 in England, AR to the late Ernest and Bertie Minton.  She is preceded in death by her brother, Ernest Hoyt Minton, Jr.; husband, Wesley T.

Bonnie Chander loved her Lord Jesus Christ. After moving to Gallatin in 1944, she began attending First Baptist Church.  She fulfilled His great commission with her gift of writing and sending cards.  This along with her beloved Homebound Ministry at FBC Gallatin, gave her countless opportunities to bless both individuals and families.  Bonnie also worked for 55 years serving and clothing all members of her community with dignity and elegance.  Bonnie passionately cherished her family.  She raised 4 daughters, 6 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.  She deeply loved and supported each one.  Her legacy was to lead her family and others to Jesus.  “Well done good and faithful servant.” Matthew 25:21
