Bonnie Patrick 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 as Associates Degree of Mortuary Science with the inaugural class from Amarillo College, under the guidance of Jason Altieri in 2000. For over the next twenty years she would serve hundreds of Panhandle Families at both Schooler and Angel Funeral Homes. In 2008 she was promoted to funeral home manager and managed both locations 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 the country to North Carolina. For the next two years she managed 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 experiencing two major hurricanes in two years, Hurricane Florence and Dorian, the couple decided to make plans to move back to Texas to be closer to family and further away from hurricanes! While in Morehead City, she was involved in Crystal Coast Networking and the BBB.
Upon returning to Texas in 2019, Bonnie worked at Robert Massie Funeral Home serving the families of the Concho Valley during the COVID epidemic. In September 2021, the opportunity to return home to Amarillo and to Schooler and Angel Funeral Homes was presented to her and she accepted the position. Coming home means she once again gets to serve the families of the Texas Panhandle and also looks forward to spending more time with their two amazing grandchildren, Mazzy and Aslan. They also have the rescue fur-babies, Monkey, Moose, Max, and Murphy.
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 plugging back into the community and once again serving the families of Amarillo and the Texas Panhandle. “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!”

Funeral Director & Embalmer
Brandon was born in Amarillo in September 1986. He lived most of his life in the Amarillo area and surrounding Panhandle areas. After graduating from Palo Duro High School, he was given the opportunity to work for a local funeral home in what he thought would be a maintenance position. On the first day, he was asked to drive a limousine and then was sent to help in other areas of the funeral home. After watching the funeral director engage a family, he was immediately intrigued.
Following his first summer with the firm, Brandon made the decision to enroll in Amarillo College School of Mortuary Science to obtain his Associate's Degree. As it is in most of life, life happens, and following the loss of his first son in 2008, Brandon decided to step away from the funeral profession.
He spent the next five years in various career fields before running into an old friend who owned a local mortuary service. After a couple of years of working multiple jobs, including weekend call shifts for the mortuary, Brandon decided to get back to school and finish his degree.
Brandon graduated from Amarillo College in 2017 and obtained his funeral director and embalmer license in 2018. Following a brief stint with another Amarillo firm, Brandon joined the Schooler and Angel Funeral Home Family in 2021, and as he says, "I finally found my place."
Brandon looks forward to coming in each day to serve the community of Amarillo with the utmost dignity and integrity that the citizens of Amarillo have come to expect from Schooler Funeral Home.
When not serving the families of Amarillo, Brandon spends his time watching his son play football and relaxing with his wife. In 2022, his family grew by one more when their niece joined the household. Together the four of them enjoy life at a slower pace and take it all in, making memories to be cherished until the long afterlife reaches its final sunset.
