In 1973, Bonde moved to Battle Mtn., Nevada where she finished raising her three youngest children among a myriad of extended family and friends who lived in the Central Nevada desert.

In 1977 Bonde married Paul Scovil, the man she donned her "Love of Loves". During the next 15 years Bonde lived an adventuress lifestyle. Bonde spread her wings and literally flew off (obtaining her pilot's license in 1982) to secluded destinations where she sailed, skied, hiked and explored. Those years Mom said, "Were a lifetime of happiness". Later in life, Bonde delved deep into her creative talents and painted many fascinating works of art, each of which contain a piece of her life's experiences mixed with her fanciful and ingenious imagination. Mom also loved literature and was never without a novel to read. She has written stories and poetry which she has shared with her children and grandchildren, forever enriching their lives. Bonde now joins her Father Luke, Mother Della, sister Mavis, brothers Son, Darvin, Tom and Jerry Don who have preceded her.
