Bunnie Woolery went home to the Lord on 2Jul2012 in Federal Way, Washington at Garden Terrace Care Center. She had battled the effects of dementia and Alzheimer's disease for about 2 years, and died peacefully in her sleep. Bunnie was one of 6 children born to Magnus and Amelia Hansen in Juneau, Alaska. She is survived by one son, Robert R. Woolery (JoAnn) of Shelton, Washington, and one daughter, Candis Ann Schubert (Landy) of Auburn, Washington. She also had four grandchildren (Leah, Kimberly, Nikki, and Danille), and 3 great-grandchildren (Blake, Courtney, and Emma). She was preceded in death by her parents and beloved husband Robert C. Woolery. Bunnie moved from Juneau, Alaska to Seattle, Washington in 1944, and it was there she met the love of her life, Robert C. Woolery, who was serving as an officer in the U.S. Navy and Merchant Marine in the Pacific Theater of Operations. They were married on 21Mar1945 and enjoyed a wonderful marriage that lasted for 53 years. After the end of the war, they lived in Yelm and the South Bay area, before purchasing a dairy and cattle farm west of Olympia. During their years on the farm, Bunnie also worked for the State Department of Agriculture, State Library, Proffits Department Store and Olympia Drugs. In 1962 Bunnie and Bob built and opened the Rose Lane Estates Mobile Home Park in Lacey. In 1976 they sold the mobile home park and settled into retirement at Wedgewood Estates in Lacey. From there they enjoyed many memorable years of traveling across the United States and their hobby of rock-hounding and gemology. During these years they also loved spending the cold winter months at a retirement mobile home park in Cathedral City, California. After the passing of her husband in 1998, Bunnie dedicated herself to serving the Lord through the Stephen Ministry program at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Olympia. She was always happiest when she could do something to help others, and was able to lift the spirits and enrich the lives of invalids and shut-ins she visited for Gloria Dei. Mom, you were the wind beneath our wings and now you are in our hearts forever. Additional information is available at www.Woodlawn-funeralhome.com. A memorial service to celebrate the life of Bunnie Woolery will be held at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church on 19July2012 at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Foundation of America or the Alzheimer's Association.
