Helen L. Bunch
Age 70, of Joliet, IL and formerly the Chesapeake, OH area, passed away peacefully, Saturday, September 11, 2021 at her daughter's home surrounded by family.
She was born October 2, 1950 to the late Easter (nee Tackett) and Harold Burns.
Beloved wife of nearly 50 years to Wayne Bunch; loving mother of Wayne (Abbie) Bunch, Jr., Autumn Bunch and Darlene Bunch; proud and devoted grandmother of Emma, Ashley, Cheridan and Gracie; dear sister of Harold "Danny", Mark, Shawn and Jeannie Burns; endearing dog-mom to "her boys", Rocky and Bo.
