A Feel Good Friday surprise for an 88-year-old legend who just received a key to her city

EastIdahoNews.com and Ashley Furniture HomeStore are teaming up every week to bring you some good news during Feel Good Friday!

We want to surprise people in our community with random acts of kindness and leave you feeling good.

Bonnie Stoddard was born Feb. 3, 1931 and turned 88-years-old this week. She has lived in Dubois most of her life and is a legend to all who know her.

Bonnie started working at the U.S. Sheep Experiment in 1963 and also worked for the University of Idaho, Sheep Station until 1992. She has worn many hats during her life.

Bonnie has written for 5 local newspapers and helped write the book “Settlers of the Silver Stage” which includes the history of everyone who has lived in Clark County. She is currently in the process of writing a book for the Centennial of Clark County.

For many years, Bonnie was called “Flash.” She never went anywhere without her camera and was always taking photos.

Earlier this week, the town of Dubois held a birthday party for Bonnie and surprised with her an honorary key to the city in recognition of all the service she’s given to her community.

We decided to thank Bonnie too and surprised her at home for Feel Good Friday.
