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. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
Preceded in death by her parents and brother, Timothy Burns.
Helen will be remembered fondly by her family as a woman of substance who endeared herself to children. She's been a wonderful wife, thoughtful, caring mother and devoted grandmother to her four granddaughters and other youngsters who may have needed a warm smile and a little encouragement.

Helen never ceased to amaze me. Her compassion for her family. Her devotion to her pets. She treated everyone with such kindness. Giving, kind and sweet. I loved her smile. My deepest sympathy to her family.

While I never had the fortune of meeting Helen, her daughter Darlene is a testament to Helen's character. Darlene is a pensive, profound, compassionate human who is present for her friends and those who care for her. I am proud to know Helen's daughter and can only imagine how proud Helen was of Darlene. I love you, Darlene.
