Biography: Bernice (Bunny) V. Brewer was born in Hawkinsville, Georgia on August 28, 1932 to the late Fannie Amanda Toomer and Alexander Lewis Brewer.
Before the age of five Bunny lost her father in a drowing accident after which she went to live with her paternal grandfather, John Lewis Brewer, whom she fondly called Papa.
As Bunny reached school age she relocated to Macon, Georgia where she was educated while under the tutelage of her uncle Walter J. Brewer and his wife aunt Mae.
While in her late teens, Bernice would later join her mother and stepfather, Charles C. Tolbert and three sibling; Charles Jr., Janette and Dana in Inwood, New York. It was here she met and married a handsome marine named James Madison Chambers Jr. From this union came four children: Deborah (Monique) Chamber of Bronx, New York, Karey (Terry) Chambers of Atlanta, Georgia, Yasmin Fields of Baldwin, New York and her loving daughter Taryn (Tammy) Chambers of New York, New York.
In 1965 Bunny and James bought a house in Huntington, New York where they raised and educated their children.
Bunny was a Registered Nurse and a savvy entrepreneur. She was a very creative person who loved to decorate, shop, travel and talk, but her passion was gardening.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, Joshua Brewer and Dana Tolbert.
Bunny is survived by: her four children, twelve grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, son-in-law Gregory fields, daughter-in-law Valencia Chambers and her 97 year old aunt L. Christine Blanford.
