Bridgette enjoyed knife collecting and had quite a large collection.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Willard and Oma Vaughan; her paternal grandmother, Margie Tillery; her paternal grandfathers, Tex Henzler and James F. Vinyard; her two uncles, Donnie Ray Vaughan and Willard Earl Vaughan; and her cousin Mitch Goff.
