Bonita ‘Bunny’ Cameron: April 24, 1948 – Nov. 17, 2020



Bunny Cameron, Bainbridge Island, Wash., resident, was born April 24, 1948 and passed away peacefully Nov. 17. 2020.

Bunny is survived by her daughter, Cameron (Shawn) Mortensen and her granddaughter Taylor Marie; two step-sons, Marc and Chad Kanchuk; sisters Donna Schell and Betty Discher; brother Donald Cameron; many nieces and nephews; and her many friends who adored her.

Bunny was known for her humor, generosity and adventurous spirit. She was born and raised on Whidbey Island, Wash., had a successful business career in Anchorage, Alaska, and then moved in the 80s to Bainbridge Island with her husband, Roger, and daughter, Cameron. Together, they ran a catering business and a bed and breakfast named The Bombay House.

Bunny poured her heart and soul into writing a cookbook, “Breakfast with Bunny.” She used to say, “20 percent of the recipes are good, 80 percent are fabulous.” Her family would say that 100 percent were fabulous given the amount of love she put into her cooking.

After selling The Bombay House, Bunny continued cooking as a private chef on yachts, planes and in private homes.

Bunny added caregiver to her resume in more recent years, providing wonderful service to each client and treating them as family.

Over the years Bunny had many adventures and loved to travel. She had a vivacious personality and always made people around her laugh. She made friends everywhere she went.

Bunny’s most recent adventure was a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer, during which she was an inspiration to her friends and caregivers.

In October, after holding her granddaughter Taylor for the first time, Bunny requested that Taylor be told about her “Nana’s” adventurous spirit through beautiful memories and tales of adventure, laughter and love.

Bunny was a strong, determined and fiercely independent woman. She will be remembered as an amazing mother, Nana, sister, aunt, business owner, author, private chef, caregiver, and friend to many. We will miss her every day.

At Bunny’s request there will be no services.
