Peacefully, at the age of 91 passed away at Riverview Gardens in Chatham Ontario on January 9, 2020. Bunny was born in Toronto August 2, 1928 to Edward Joseph and Annie Marie Keating. She was a graduate of Holy Cross and Notre Dame. She enrolled in nursing however could not handle the pressure. Bunny became employed with an insurance company where she met and eventually married the love of her life Bill Gray on September 6, 1952 at Holy Cross church in Toronto. She loved to play tennis and could be found at the Riverdale Courts throughout the summer months. Bunny had a love for snow and when the family moved to Thunder Bay she never complained about ‘snow”. Tried her hand at skiing a few times but became more comfortable as a spectator. A final move to Chatham in 89’ to the present.
