Bonnie Morrison was born and raised in Amarillo and graduated from Tascosa High School in 1987. Her early career was spent in the medical field. In 1997, she began working at Schooler Funeral Home in Amarillo. She graduated with an Associate’s Degree of Mortuary Science from Amarillo College under the guidance of Jason Altieri in 2000. For over the next twenty years she would serve hundreds of Panhandle Families. In 2008 she was promoted to funeral home manager and managed both Schooler and Angel Funeral homes until she resigned her position in 2017 to explore other opportunities in the funeral industry. Bonnie was active in Rotary, SPCA, and spent many hours supporting and volunteering for local hospices, community organizations and charities.
In 2017, she and her husband Jim took a leap of faith and moved across country to North Carolina. For the next two years she would manage Brooks Funeral Home and Crematory in Morehead City. A beautiful coastal town located in Eastern North Carolina. Although they loved living on the coast, after surviving two major hurricanes in two years, Hurricane Florence and Dorian, the couple started thinking about making a move back to Texas to be closer to family and further from hurricanes!
Her husband Jim also brings decades of experience as he owned Morrison Funeral Directors in Dumas, Sunray and Stratford for many years. After selling his funeral home he managed for SCI, ECI, and Legacy Funeral Group before retiring in 2017. The couple have two incredible grandchildren, Mazzy and Aslan and three rescue fur-babies, Monkey, Moose and Max
In addition to having years of management and business experience, Bonnie is currently a licensed funeral director and embalmer in both Texas and North Carolina. She is also a licensed crematory operator, an InSight Certified Celebrant and serves on the Jerry M. Speed Memorial Scholarship Committee. She is excited about getting plugged into the community and serving the people of the Concho Valley. “I absolutely believe I have the best job in the world. Is it hard, YES! Is it demanding, YES! Does it challenge me each day, mentally, physically and emotionally, YES! And I wouldn’t want it any other way!”
