Jaunita Bunning

Jan. 10, 1930 – Jan. 12, 2021

Life is timeless as “Nita” will remain in many hearts forever. She was preceded in death by two sisters and two brothers, whom she cherished with fond lingering memories. She is survived by one brother, Bob and Carol Evans of Arkansas; three children, Sharlea Nisbet of California, Larry and Gaby Fox and Jim and Sherry Kolb of Buffalo. Family meant everything to Nita as she adored all of her “favorite” 11 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren and eight great-great-grandchildren. Nita loved to travel and lived in many states before making her final destination in Buffalo, over 40 years ago.

With the ability to adapt to many careers, she began at a young age caring for patients of all ages. She was able to expand her talents when she became a beautician and opened a luxury beauty shop in Colorado. After moving to Wyoming, she was instrumental in launching home care services in Sheridan.

Her gifting personality led the way to additional skills in fostering pets, ceramics, quilting, painting, crafting and making beautiful China dolls. At times, she would load all her critters in her motor home to tour the country visiting family and making new friends. Savoring the splendors of life, love and laughter, she strived to experience it all and never wanted to be the person who wished they had.
