Bonnie Mutchler was a native of south west Iowa. She lived in southern Missouri for a time before returning to her roots, where she spent the last years of her life with her children, and her pets; Momo, Blinky, and John Jones. A lover of art, she was both a painter and writer, as well as a prolific poet who wrote hundreds of poems from her childhood on, several of which have been published in various anthologies. Sadly, she passed February 15, 2021, leaving behind a legacy of creativity, including some previously unpublished poetry collections, and a legion of family and friends who miss her. May she live on in her works.
