HowIsBunny exclusive: Monday’s notices

Callanan (nee Bunton) – Michelle aka Bunny
14/06/74 – 26/12/08

Bunny passed away peacefully after a brave fight against breast cancer with Sean, Orval, David, Matt and Lieutenant Dan by her side. She made this “corner of the earth” an amazing place with her smile, vitality and presence. She was ready to be with her Mum, Curl, two amazing women now at peace together.

Beloved does not seem strong enough for the way we all felt about Bunny as a wife, sister, daughter, aunty and mate. She loved life and the people who played a part in it, she made a huge impression on all who knew her especially the kids. Jade & Rhys, Archie & Julia, Eden & Ava, Darcy & Beau, Becky & Adam, Aimee, Zoe & Charlie, Finn & Lily, little baby Sean and many more were all very lucky to have known Bunny. She loved all of you to bits, you all had a special place in her heart.

Bunny, I cannot express how much you enriched the lives of Jade, Rhys & I. Our home has been filled with love and laughter as it will continue to be as you have left us with so many great memories.

Thank you to Dr Rowan Doig and all the staff at Epworth 4EW. To quote Bun, “We welcome the day we brought you on board.”

Thanks to Michelle’s colleagues at Medibank Private especially her mentor and friend Alan, your support over the past two years has been remarkable.

Thanks to everyone for the messages of support on

Goodbye my lover, Sean

CALLANAN, Michelle (Bunny)
On Boxing Day after a courageous battle with cancer.
Beloved wife of Sean, step mother and friend to Jade & Rhys, loved and loving daughter in law of John and Libby, sister in law of Matt and Bridget, Meg and Larry, Dan and Kristy, special auntie to Darcy and Beau.
We will miss you Bunny, your smiling face and your special sayings always brightened up our day.
Rest in peace Bunny.
Love John & Lib xx

CALLANAN, Michelle (Bunny)
We will all miss you Bun.
Bunny from day one you were always so energetic and generous – always looking after others (especially spoiling Jade and Rhys and your niece and nephew). Your positive outlook rubbed off on us all and we feel privileged to have shared so many great times and having you as part of our family. The love and commitment you and Sean shared will not be forgotten, nor will the friendship that you shared with Jade and Rhys. Your fighting spirit was there to the very end and the courage, devotion and strength Sean displayed is admired by us all.
Bless ya Bun,
Matt, Bridge, Darcy and Beau, Meg and Larry, Dan and Kristy xoxo
