JESSIE MAE “BUNNIE” SIMMONS [Cumberland]

CUMBERLAND — Jessie Mae “Bunnie” Simmons, 81, of Cumberland, died Monday, Oct. 15, 2012 at the home of her daughter.

Born May 9, 1931, in Johnstown, Pa., she was the daughter of the late Ralph Paul Young and Elizabeth (Shaw) Young. She was also preceded in death by her husband, Leonard Simmons, Sept. 6, 1987; and a sister, Blodwyn Taylor.

Bunnie took pride in her career as a wife and mother. She loved to cook and entertain family and friends. She enjoyed a second career as the proprietor of Bunnie’s Tavern. She served home style meals, cold beer, and lots of fun. After Bunnie’s “retirement,” she continued to hostess on weekends.

Mechem, LaVale; a brother, Ralph “Sonny” Young Jr. and wife Betty, Johnstown; and her grandchildren, Erica Garwood and husband, Gregory and Drew Kagle; great-grandchildren, Jordan, Jessa and Jack Garwood; and is also survived by Pete Mechem and Rick and Barbara Kagle.
