Bonnie Faye Carpenter, of Wilmington quietly passed away to meet the holy spirit on Friday Jan 12,2 024 at 4:42 p.m.

She was born in Columbus County on January 3, 1952. She is preceded in death by her father Harry Leonard, her mother Hilda Leonard, and her brother Richard Leonard.

She is survived by her husband Jimmy Carpenter, her son Scott Carpenter, and her granddaughter Falon Carpenter. She also leaves behind other family members along with a multitude of friends who cared deeply for her.

Bonnie immensely enjoyed saltwater fishing and the beach. Her other passions included UNC basketball and NFL football. She was forever a faithful Carolina Panthers fan through the good and the bad seasons. Bonnie also enjoyed good music and playing the guitar. Her most endearing feature was supporting and encouraging people to always do their best. Perhaps her proudest moment in life was raising a son who became a registered nurse and retired from the USAF in 2022.

Bonnie was a great person with a huge heart who believed in giving rather than taking. She leaves behind many friends both social and in real life who loved and cared for her deeply. She will be missed by all.

All of us boys could be out on the ball field there at the school, having a game of baseball and here come Bonnie, she would have her hat on, have her glove and always the “ bat “! She was good, she could hang with the best. So sorry. God bless her and all.
