Laura Ida Norman/Driver died in 1925 as Ruth Norman. Bonnie is Juanita Bonney, wife of Charles Wilson Asburn Jr (Stage name Charles Levine or La Vine). Charles was with Evelyn LaDeaux by 1930 and Juanita was in Omaha, NE for 1935,36,39 and 1941 City Drcty. Her mother was there as well. In the directories Juanita says she is the widow of Charles Asburn, who died in 1977. In the 1940 census of Omaha Juanita Bonnie and dtr Virginia Bemis (I think that's a compressed Bonnie), are living with her widowed mother, Theresa (McGuire) Bonnie in Omaha, Douglas, NE, but she was Juanita Asburn for 1941 Directory.

I have a little more if interested. I lost Virginia McCrea after 1956, so no idea whether she had children. She was 35 when she married John R. McCrea.
