Jane “Bunny” Petroff
September 25, 1929 - October 3, 2018
Bunny Petroff passed away calmly on October 3, 2018 in Los Gatos, California. She was 89.
She was born Jane Amidon in Boston MA on September 25, 1929. She became a gracious, athletic, and loving woman, known to all as Bunny. She moved to San Francisco in 1952 and met Serge Petroff, the love of her life, in a singles chairlift line while skiing at Tahoe. She lived 40+ years in Mill Valley.
Bunny’s four children all attended Tam High. She taught them all to ski, how to enjoy an outdoor lifestyle and how to embrace a liberal attitude toward people and cultures. She was active in the Scott Valley Swimming & Tennis Club. She was a docent at the de Young, specializing in art of the Pacific Rim, Oceana and the Americas.
She had many friends in Mill Valley and throughout the Bay Area. She made friends all over the world while traveling with Serge during their retirement years, and many of these far flung friends came to visit and stay with her in Mill Valley.
Serge died in 2014 and during the last few years she lived in Los Gatos. She was unable to get out and about, and needed to be cared for by family. All are saddened by her death.
She is survived by her four children, nine grandchildren and one great-grandson, and by her younger brother.
