Bunny was predeceased by her parents, Peter and Frances Mayer; her step-mother, Kay Gillis; sister Pamela Lambillotte; and her grandchildren of the heart Richard and Clemens Gentzsch.
Bunny is survived by her husband Vic; daughter Christine (Jeff) Schick and grandsons, Lindsey and Curtis; her daughter Andrea (Adam) Batchelor and granddaughter Tristan; her son Kelly Wiebe; her Kiwi daughter of the heart Lila (Ray) Willis and children: Terri (Godchild), Braden and Rochelle, her Swiss daughter of the heart, Yasmine (Michael) Gentzsch; her brother Terry Mayer (Antoinette Gagne) and his children Kimberley and Christopher; nieces, Terri Persing and Deanna Lambillotte.
Bunny was born and raised in Regina, SK, graduated from Central Collegiate, and took her training as a nurse at the University of Saskatchewan where she met Vic whom she married in 1964. They established their first home in Prince Albert, SK and resided there for 14 years during which time all of their children were born. She enjoyed being a stay-at-home mom, but as the children were approaching school age, she went to work as a teaching assistant which allowed her to keep the same work days and hours as the children. This became her work calling through to retirement in 2001 even as Vic’s work took them to living in Regina, Thompson and Weyburn. Her enjoyment of working with children and youth led her to volunteer as a Sunday School teacher and a leader in other children’s activities such as Brownies and Beavers.
She enjoyed singing in both church and community choirs, attending musical concerts and festivals and many tears of extensive traveling camping-style. In her later years she was restricted in her mobility due to health issues, but continued to enjoy traveling and spending times with family and friends.
