Bunker Family Funeral & Cremation,
Lela "Bunky" Morrison
June 19, 1932 ~ January 24, 2013
Lela Faye Morrison, affectionately known as Bunky, went to be with her loved ones in Heaven on January 24, 2013. She was born to James and Florence Carlton on June 19, 1932, in Gillette, WY.
She kept a piece of Wyoming in her heart, even as she added Arizona to her list of favorites.
Bunky moved from Wyoming to Arizona in the early 50s to marry the love of her life, Kenny. Soon after, they started their family and worked hard on their farm and ranch together throughout their lifetime.
Bunky is survived by her daughter, Dawnie and her husband Justin Stewart, and sons, Glen, and Dale. She is also survived by her brother and sister-in-law Don and Arlene Carlton. She will be dearly missed by her five grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. When Bunky became a great-grandmother, she became known as GG, short for "Great Grandmother" and everyone that knew her, agrees that she was truly great. She loved her kids, grand kids and great-grand kids.
Her favorite past time was spending time with each and every one of them and telling them how much they were loved. Bunky spent many hours walking her beloved dogs along the field roads around their home in Higley, Arizona, enjoying the peacefulness and beauty of the farm. She also loved being up on the family Ranch in Northern Arizona. She looked forward to the hard work of Roundup.
She spent long days preparing food for the cowboys as they came in from gathering, branding and working the cattle. Bunky loved being with people. Her husband always said, "She was the first to get somewhere and the last to leave." Throughout her life, she was known for her beautiful roses. She will be remembered for her gardens and sharing blossoms with family and friends.
Visitation will be held on Monday, January 28, 2013 from 6 to 8 PM at Bunkers Garden Chapel, 33 N. Centennial Way in Mesa. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, January 29th, 10 AM at First United Methodist Church, 331 South Cooper Road, Gilbert.
In lieu of donations, Bunky would be honored if you would set aside a time to share a meal with family, make a phone call to a loved one, or take a walk in nature and enjoy all the beauty life has to offer. These are things about which she was passionate.
