Henda “Bunny” Kerr

KERR: Henda “Bunny” Kerr, 76, of Fox Chapel died March 30 after a courageous battle with lung cancer. Bunny was born in Squirrel Hill to Carl and Roberta Munter. She attended The Ellis School before going off to The Ohio State University. She worked at Filene’s department store in Boston before returning home to work at Kaufmann’s. Bunny carried this passion of retail sales into opening The Trillium Shoppe in Aspinwall. She eventually moved the store to the Fox Chapel Plaza, closing only when the majority of the Fox Chapel women were fitted in the correctly-sized bra. Bunny enjoyed playing bridge, traveling with her husband, and spending time with her grandchildren. She is survived by her husband of 22 years, Tom Kerr. Beloved mother of Rory (David) Lazear and Brett (Jennifer) Sholder. Devoted sister to Candy (Ike) Brown and Stephen (Zola) Munter. Affectionate and always full of wisdom, she was “BB” to Toby Lazear, Casey Lazear, Skyler Sholder and Blake Sholder. Also, a loving stepmother to Tom’s three children: Amy (David) Parker, Brian (Angela) Kerr and Sara Ruth (Scott) Rigsby. Bunny was known as someone who was always looking to help other people. She handed out coupons at the holiday time to surprised shoppers, made sweets and treats for friends and loved dedicating her time to caring for others. Graveside services and interment will be private. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Cancer Society or the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh. Arrangements entrusted to Ralph Schugar Chapel, Inc., family owned and operated. schugar.com PJC
