Bernice "Bunny" Waltman, 75, of Delray Beach Florida peacefully passed away at Delray Hospice on January 21, 2011. Her husband Bernie was at her side. They were married for 55 years.

Bunny was born in Brooklyn, New York, and moved to Des Moines, Iowa, when she married Bernie in 1956. They joined Tifereth Israel Synagogue and Bunny soon became an active and vital member of sisterhood at the synagogue. She participated in a variety of charitable functions and was constantly called upon for her magnificent baking and decorating prowess. She could even be coaxed into a little group effort of "show-biz" singing and dancing, as long as it was for a worthy fund-raising function.

In 2002, Bunny and Bernie moved to Delray Beach Florida into a new and growing community called "Vizcaya" and soon became endeared members of their new neighborhood. In fact, Bernie and Bunny amassed wonderful and enduring friendships throughout their 55-year marriage.

Bunny is survived by her husband, Bernie, two sons, Rick (Karla) of Runnells and Ken (Kim) of West Des Moines and five grandchildren: Amie (Olathe, KS), Michael (Runnells), Joshua, Madelyn and Elijah (West Des Moines).

Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 at 1 p.m. at Tifereth Israel Synagogue, 924 Polk Blvd., Des Moines. Dunn's Funeral Home is handling arrangements. Burial will be at Jewish Glendale Cemetery on University Avenue in Des Moines.

Memorials may be directed to the Susan G. Komen Foundation or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
