She was born July 24, 1930 in Ellsworth to Major L. and Ruth (Nemechek) Benson.

Bunny spent most of her life living in Ellsworth where she was a homemaker and member of the Harvest Bible Church. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Bunny touched many lives with her faith and love for others. Her knowledge in the scriptures was fed daily by many Christian radio programs and personal study.
