Bonnie married Winfred Jerome Hess on 3 October 1952 in Lebanon, Virginia. They had three children together before the couple separated on 4 September 1973. Three months later, Winfred was granted a divorce decree.

After the divorce became final, Bonnie married Flem Evert Ball on 29 December 1973 in Russell County, Virginia. Flem was a widower.

Flem Evert Ball died on 13 April 2002 in Emerald Isle, North Carolina.

When Bonnie's brother, Bobbie Joe Muir, died in 2014, Bonnie lived in Florida.
