Bunny started her teaching career in a 1 room school house and retired from the Greenfield School District in the early 1980s. Many continue to be wrapped in her warmth through her gift of afghans to her family, friends, and the needy. Bunny’s unwavering faith is an inspiration to all the lives she touched. She enjoyed reading, writing and receiving letters, playing cards a.k.a “Card Shark”, bird watching, spoiling everyone with her sweets, and giving generously. She was a spiritual, selfless woman who will be missed by many.
