HELENE BUNNELL Feb. 5, 2017 Helene Cameron Bunnell, 101, of Jacksonville, Fla., passed away on Feb. 5, 2017. She was born on April 20, 1915 in Susquehanna County. She is preceded in death by her husband of 57 years, Wayne Keithline Bunnell; one brother Erwin Cameron; and a sister Carmita Cameron Murphy. She is survived by her son Richard Wayne Bunnell (Wynelle) of Jacksonville; grandson Brian (Amanda) and grandchildren: Kenna and Evan Bunnell of Greer, S.C. Helene's extended family includes several step-grandchildren; great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandchild. Helene was devoted to her family and one could say she truly lived life to the fullest. Last April she celebrated her 101st birthday with a party, which included family and friends from her hometown of Montrose, Pa., Illinois, California, South Carolina and Georgia. The party extended into the next day with a trip to Deland, Fla., where she participated in a three generational skydiving jump with her son, RIchard and grandson, Brian. This was her fourth jump, and believed to be the world's record in skydiving history at age 101. She was well cared for in recent months by Northeast Florida Community Hospice, for which her family is truly grateful. Arrangements were by Hardage Giddens, 729 S. Edgewood Ave., Jacksonville, FL 32205.
