TeAirra Denise Elizabeth Bunn was tragically taken away from us on Sept. 2, 2011. TeAirra was born Jan. 10, 1987 in Port Washington where she lived at the time of her passing. She graduated from Uniondale High School in 2004 and went on to study nursing at Nassau Community College and New York Institute of Technology.
TeAirra was a patient care associate at Winthrop University Hospital of Mineola since 2004 and had recently re-enrolled in school to complete her degree in nursing. Always there with a smile and warm embrace TeAirra was a friend and confidante to many. Her calming persona and sense of humor suited her well in her position, but caring for her patients was her priority.
“You are one of God’s angels and he needed you” said her sister Princess Sade in a letter to TeAirra.
TeAirra leaves to mourn: her mother, Toni D. McCullough and father, Kenneth E. Bunn both from Port Washington; sisters, Princess Sade and Jasmine Caprice of Port Washington; grandmother, Sadie Elizabeth McCullough of Port Washington and godchildren, Duan Woody and Christian Butler both of Freeport.
Viewing services were held on Sept. 8 at Union Baptist Church, Hempstead. Funeral services were held following the viewing. Interment Sept. 9 at Nassau Knolls Cemetery, Port Washington.
