Jan passed away at her home in Chelsea on Saturday, February 1, 2020, at the age of 64. She was born May 2, 1955 in Vinita, the daughter of Clarence Albert "Kid" Roberts and Lois Jane (Most) Roberts. She grew up and attended school in Chelsea, graduating with the class of 1973. On December 21, 1974, she married Jim Bunnell, and the couple was blessed with five children.
Jan truly had a servant's heart. She was a hard worker all her life, having worked at Chelsea Rexall Drugs, Bank of Chelsea, First National Bank of Chelsea, and the Rogers County Treasurers Office through the years. She loved to cook, and her family lovingly remembers the big meals she cooked, and her cinnamon rolls and blackberry cobbler. She loved to feed everyone, including all her children's friends. Any time food was needed for a fundraiser, Jan was right there with something delicious. In her spare time, she loved to garden, with strawberries and blackberries being the most important. She also enjoyed sewing and playing bunco. She was a member of the Sanctuary Christian Worship Center, CMA, and the Chelsea Delphians.
Jan was preceded in death by her parents, her sister, Shirley Sumner, and her son Brandon Bunnell.
Survivors include her husband Jim, children and bonus children Carrie C. Bunnell, James Ryan Bunnell, Andrew Bible, Chad Bunnell and wife Brandi, Kris Bunnell and wife Jade, Josh Osten, Jonathon Osten, and Phil Bible; grandchildren Kenaston, Lily, Ethan, Kaden, Bryson, Baker, and Kaleb; siblings Marvin Roberts and Sandra Wheat and husband Jerry; and many friends.
