Born in Norwich, CT on May 29, 1928, she was the daughter of the late Eugene Henry Bunnell and Jessie (Gembel) Bunnell. She was a lifetime resident of CT. On March 10, 1973, she married Nunzio Picchione and enjoyed 23 years together until his death in 1996.
Bunny worked as a shipping worker in electronics manufacturing until retiring. She resided at Douglas Manor where she enjoyed playing bingo and making the daily announcements and the joke of the day.
