Bonnie Elizabeth Parker (October 1, 1910 – May 23, 1934) was born in Rowena, Texas, the second of three children. Her father, Charles Parker, a bricklayer, died when Bonnie was four. Her mother, Emma Krause, moved with the children to her parents' home in Cement City, an industrial suburb of Dallas, where she found work as a seamstress. Parker was one of the best students in her high school, winning top prizes in spelling, writing and public speaking.
Bonnie Parker mug shots, April, 1932, captured after botched robbery, acquitted in June for lack of evidence, released from jail she quickly reunited with Clyde. Although this photo was identified as Bonnie, apparently it's her sister, Billie Jean. She often rode with B & C but was not involved in their crimes.
