September 22, 1936 - December 6, 2019
Beatrice ‘Bunny’ Koehler, 83, of Traverse City, formerly Muskegon (Twin Lake), passed away December 6, 2019. Bunny was born September 22, 1936 to the late Clarence and Dorothy (Ellery) Hall in Mesick, MI. She was a Mom who loved her family, a mentor, a warrior and spunky. She loved to make people smile and laugh and made her children her priority by doing menial jobs to provide school clothes for her children. She was a very hard worker setting a wonderful example for her kids, and she was able to instill in each of them all the positive life lessons they would need. Bunny was a very determined woman and as an adult with diligence and perseverance she completed her high school diploma with evening classes just as she had set out to do. This was one of her many amazing accomplishments in life. Bunny loved crafts and would regularly have a project going with all her kids. She especially excelled at needlepoint but would often brush off the compliments and just say it was ok (we all knew better). She looked forward to the times her entire family would gather at her family holiday reunions. Her family always meant as much to her as she did to them. She will forever be missed! A funeral service will take place Saturday December 14, 2019 at 11:00 am at the Reynolds Jonkhoff Funeral Home with visitation one-hour prior. Bunny is survived and missed dearly by her son Monte (Lori Mattson), Brenda Pepper, Connie (Ralph) Hintsala and daughter in law Ai Koehler. She is also survived by 10 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Owen and her son Lorin. Also preceded in death by her sisters Sue "Cookie" Brueck and Thelma "DeDe" Betlejewski. Those wishing an expression of sympathy may choose to do so to the St. Jude's Hospital.
