Bunny Masurka-Wiersema

Bunny Masurka-Wiersema, 74, of Glen, Minnesota passed away unexpectedly on Friday May 7, 2021 at Riverwood Healthcare, Aitkin, MN.

Bunny was born April 7, 1947 in Minneapolis, MN to Maxine and Clancy Orred. She grew up in Minneapolis, Minnesota and graduated from Columbia Heights High School. She married Dale “Bo” Wiersema in 2002 and they spent 18 years as husband and wife before his passing in 2020.

Bunny worked many years in the hospitality industry whether it was as a waitress, chef, manager or caretaker. She always wanted to see people happy and enjoying themselves. Whenever you stopped by her home a beverage and a “bite to eat” was always offered first. Bunny had a love of the simple. She loved a good garage sale or thrift store and would always find amazing treasures. In her quiet time, Bunny was an avid reader of cookbooks (looking for new recipes to try), mysteries and just about any other style of book or magazine she could find. Summers spent outside with her flowers and birds always put a smile on her face.

Bunny is survived by her daughter Myia (Charlie) Paradis of Cook, MN, son Eric Masurka (Alyx) of McGregor, MN, brother Jim (Cheryl) Bodin of Wyoming, MN, sister Mary Mapes of Glen, MN, sister Marie (Dan) Gordon of Glen, MN, granddaughter Mykaela Paradis of Glen, MN, granddaughter CharLee Masurka of Bagley, MN and grandson Logan Masurka of Bagley, MN. She is also survived by many nieces, nephews and cousins that she loved dearly.

Bunny is proceeded in death by her husband, parents, grandparents, infant son, Paul Richard and her beloved pupper, Margaret Mae.

Please join us in celebrating her life, along with that of her husband Bo Wiersema, Saturday June 5, 2021 at 3pm at Glory Baptist Church, Aitkin, MN (Visitation 1 hour prior)
