Bunny married Jim in 1946, and, as a ‘logger’s wife’, made various moves throughout B.C. In Prince George Bunny worked at Woodwards and managed an apartment block. They spent 14 years in Vavenby and moved to Clearwater in 2011.
Bunny was dedicated to her family and friends and gave unselfishly to others. As a mom, her love was unconditional. She will always be remembered as a warm and giving person with a magical inner strength.
In 2008 she was honoured as the recipient of theDHMH Hands Award for her dedication to the Vavenby Thrift Shop. Bunny was a volunteer canvasser for the Cancer Society. Always friendly, positive and outgoing, she left her mark on those she met.
