Edithmarie L. “Bunny” Siebert of Hopkinton died peacefully on Jan. 24 after long battles with multiple infirmities.
Beloved wife of the late Paul Siebert and loving mother of the late William Paul Siebert and the late Lea Marie Siebert, Bunny also was predeceased by her parents, Alfred and Dorothy Ljunggren. She is survived by cousins Peter Cooper of Needham and Lee Butler of Somersworth, New Hampshire.
Bunny was born Jan. 27, 1942, in Boston and raised in Hopkinton. She graduated from Framingham State College and went on to train as a nurse with particular emphasis on geriatrics. Over the course of her long professional life she also worked in high-tech and state government. She was happiest when working in service of others.
Bunny was ever grateful to the many friends, doctors, nurses, firefighters and policemen who provided support and comfort as she made her way through life. She felt particularly blessed to form strong bonds with fellow parishioners at St. John the Evangelist Church, where a funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 31. There will be no visitation hours and burial will be private. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Callanan Cronin Funeral Home, Hopkinton.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Bunny’s memory to the St. Vincent de Paul Society at St. John the Evangelist Parish, 20 Church Street, Hopkinton, MA 01748.
