Jean Bunch

Our beloved mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend, Jean Bunch (Molitor) passed away peacefully at Hospice of Cincinnati on March 31, 2018 in Cincinnati, OH at the age of 61. She was surrounded by her loving family. She was born on April 21,1956 in Wilmington, OH to Harry and Ellen (Johnson) Molitor. She graduated from Fayetteville High School in 1974 and attended Morehead State University where she was a member of the varsity cheerleading team and the Kappa Delta Sorority. She worked many years in sales and marketing while living in Bradenton, FL and eventually became a stay- at-home mother. In 1981, she married Everett Ross Bunch in Dayton, OH and later divorced. Over their 16-year marriage, they had two children, Cynthia (Bunch) Owen and Blake Bunch and she also lovingly welcomed Ross’s sons, Wendell Bunch and Brandon Bunch, as her own. Her children remember her as the most loving, thoughtful mother who always put others before herself. These qualities truly made her the best mother. Jeannie’s greatest accomplishment and joy was being a mother and grandmother. When she wasn’t watching Blake’s baseball games or visiting Cynthia in Boston, you could find her laughing with friends, walking on the beach, reminiscing about growing up on a farm and helping others. She had a beautiful relationship with Jesus and was an active member of Grace Mennonite Church in Berlin, OH while she lived in Holmes County. Her most precious memories were spent with her loved ones in her home in Bradenton, FL.
