Mary “Bunky” Elizabeth Womble Manley

August 26, 1956 – January 18, 2021

BunkyIt is with the saddest of hearts that we are mourning the passing of one of the ziMS Foundation’s Champions. Fondly known as Bunky, she had been with the Foundation from its inception in 2006. Her passion and energy as a volunteer, secretary, board member, decision-maker, and friend touched every aspect of how the Foundation has grown over the last 15years. Bunky was an integral part in guiding the Foundation from a simple idea and discussion in 2006 to a thriving organization that has given back many millions of dollars to help those suffering from Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and ultimately find a cure.

Beyond the ziMS Foundation Bunky wore many “hats”. One of her true loves was teaching. For 15 years we always waited with wonderment as the first week of school would roll around and she would tell us about “her” kids and the plans for the coming school year. It was a delight to see her face light up as she would talk about the Math and Science Academy and the Science Camps she was a major part of developing and running. It is for this reason that the ziMS Foundation is coming together with Linkhorn Park Elementary School to help fund a science lab in Bunky’s honor. Donations may be made by clicking here. Please place “Bunky Manley” as the Memorial Name to help us direct the funds to Linkhorn Park Elementary School. Any donation is welcome and greatly appreciated.
