Bonnie Lavern McCarty

Pauls Valley, Oklahoma — Bonnie Lavern McCarty was born to Emory Manuel and Bonnie Ester Centers (Manuel) on August 30, 1935 in Ada, OK and entered eternal life on May 28, 2014 at the age of 78 years.

Bonnie spent her childhood years in Ada, Okla., where she attended grade school. She completed her G.E.D. in Pauls Valley, Okla.

On July 19, 1952 she married Earl Higgins in Arkansas. After Earl passed away, she married Larry McCarty on May 7, 1971 in Gainesville, Texas.

Lavern worked at a variety of different jobs. Most recently she retired from working at the Wal-Mart Cash Office and also retired from the Green Sheet.

She was a big fan of the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team, and also loved to watch Peyton Manning when he played for the Colts as well as the Broncos.

The highlight of her life was her family, with her dogs Lucy and Russell running a close second. The most important thing she taught others was that family is to be cherished.
