Marian “Nanny” Bunner, 82, of Grandview, passed away on Thursday, January 21, 2021, surrounded by her family.
Marian was born in Cannelton on January 17, 1939, to Chester and Bessie (Burden) Spencer.
A beautician for 52 years, Marian cut nearly every head of hair in Grandview. She was a member of Grandview United Methodist Church. But most of all, Marian was “Nanny” to anyone who needed her: her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren and her Grandview children. She deeply loved her family, from her husband and children to each great-niece and -nephew.
Nanny was blessed with a fun, warm and giving spirit that she shared with everyone she met. She was always willing to laugh. She always wanted to dance. She always cheered on her family, no matter how cold the football game. She always made delicious pecan pie at Thanksgiving. She always gave you a hug and maybe a scratch off. If you were with Nanny, you were having fun; it was impossible not to.
Marian is survived and terribly missed by her husband of 64 years, Bill Bunner, of Grandview; her children Debbie (Wally) Hall of Grandview and Bill (Jacque) Bunner of Santa Claus; her six grandchildren, Karen (Maurice) Thomas of Elkhorn, Wisconsin, Kim (John) Ficker of Chrisney, Kevin (Lindsey) Hall of Reo, Andrew Bunner of Evansville, Kasey (Stephen) Fuqua of Dayton, Ohio and Amanda (Nick) Hackworth of Evansville; as well as nine great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her siblings, Bobby (Judy) Spencer of Benton, Arkansas, Betty Northenor of Warner Robbins, Georgia, Michael (Teresa) Spencer of Taswell, Lynn (Janet) Spencer of Grandview and Terri (Jay) Phegley of Rensselaer.
