Our hearts are saddened by the loss of Bernadine “Bunny” O’Shaughnessy, this past Friday, December 10, 2021, at her home in North Hudson, WI. She was surrounded by her siblings and one of her trusted caregivers, Amber Cordes-Jobe. She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Bernadine O’Shaughnessy, as well as brother-in-law James Rosacker. She is survived by sisters Maureen Rosacker, Kathleen, Colleen, and brother Mike (Julie), nieces and nephews, Gretchen (David) Hubbard, Patrick (Alisha),Trevor (Beth), Brendan (Katie), and Brynn O’Shaughnessy, as well as seven great-nieces and nephews.
Bunny was a free spirit with many interests and abilities. In her younger days, she participated in Special Olympics, enjoying being with friends and especially attending Olympic celebrations. Bunny held several employment positions over a twenty-five-year period until deciding that she wanted to retire early and devote her time to pursue painting and a wide variety of crafts. Bunny’s art was on display at many community sites. She also gifted many of her pieces to family and friends.
