Eleanore "Bunny" Schemm passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, February 26, 2024 at the age of 82. Bunny is survived by her brother Bill, children Jack Ferry, Jr. (June), Daniel Ferry (Maria), Dianne Pilon (Charlie), and Cheryl Ferry (Peter), as well as her grandchildren Melissa, Sean, Brianna, Thomas, Danielle, and Max, step-grandchildren Eduardo, Luis and Angel, and great-grandchildren Xiomara and Azula, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Bunny was a proud Philadelphian and loved Phillies baseball, soft pretzels and pizza steaks and never lost her Philadelphia accent even though she spent her later years in Lebanon, PA. Bunny worked various jobs in retail, factory work, and even as a legal secretary before retiring from Ferry Law Office. Bunny never forgot a birthday or holiday and loved to give gifts for special occasions. She was a lifelong crocheter and once made 20 blankets to donate to the homeless. After her struggle with breast cancer, she made pink scarves to give out to women getting their mammograms. She took pride in decorating her dialysis center for every holiday, bringing candy and little gifts to cheer up other patients. She loved to do projects around the house, and her kids always joked about her tireless painting and repainting of rooms in her house. Bun was an avid reader and loved mysteries and true crime. Bunny fought fiercely through many health struggles, and her will to live amazed everyone who knew her. Most important to her was the role of caretaker for her disabled brother Bill. Her children will ensure that Bill receives appropriate care for the rest of his days. A celebration of life and inurnment will be announced at a later date.
