Read more about the life story of Bunny and share your memory.
Bunny Bernfeld, age 70, of Squirrel Hill, died Tuesday, June 27, 2023.
Bunny was admired by family and friends for her beauty, wit, intelligence, and generosity. An avid baker and sweet tooth, she loved to share her baked desserts with those she loved, even by mail when at a distance. Her jelly cookies were a treasure. Born into a musical family, she was a gifted singer. In the late 1970s, she sang and recorded with her late brother Martin who performed as King Solomon and subsequently as Martin Solomon and the Hurricanes. She fostered a love of music in her son, Joshua, teaching him to play the piano at an early age. A graduate of Carnegie Mellon and a senior executive at an investment bank in New York City, he is Bunny’s proudest accomplishment.
A lifelong resident of Pittsburgh, Bunny attended Falk and Winchester Thurston Schools. She then graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pittsburgh where she majored in speech communications. In her later years, Bunny worked in office management for Pitt and Carnegie Mellon. She also worked for the Giant Eagle.
In addition to her son, Bunny is survived by her older brother Lawrence, an attorney in New York City, her sister-in-law Ginny, and several cousins, nieces, and nephews, as well as a beloved group of close friends. Funeral and interment are private. Arrangements by John A. Freyvogel Sons, Inc. (freyvogelfuneralhome.com)
