Hilda Teresa Bunker, 79, sang, worked for church

Hilda Teresa Bunker, who sang and worked for her church, died Tuesday of pulmonary disease at Anne Arundel Medical Center. She was 79 and had lived for 54 years in Arnold.

Born in Baltimore, Hilda Engberg graduated from St. Elizabeth's School and Annapolis High School. In 1941, she married Donald R. Bunker Sr., and after his death in 1981 became part-owner of HH Bunker and Sons, a well-drilling company that later was sold.

Mrs. Bunker was a longtime parishioner of St. John the Evangelist Church in Severna Park, where she sang in the choir, served as a cantor and a pastoral minister, and worked as a bookkeeper and an administrative assistant.

A member of Arnold Senior Center, Mrs. Bunker enjoyed traveling, singing, dancing, reading and being with her family.

Services were held Thursday.

She is survived by a daughter, Teresa Florin of Flemington, N.J.; four sons, Stephen Bunker of Waldorf, and Donald R. Bunker Jr., Michael Bunker and Thomas Bunker, all of Arnold; a brother, John Engberg of Salisbury; a sister, Doris Slavin of Severna Park; 12 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

The family suggested memorial contributions be made to the Anne Arundel Medical Center Hospice, Franklin and Cathedral streets, Annapolis 21401.
