Marion Nada Dunn (nee Wheeler) was born on October 19, 1933, in Presque Isle, Maine. She passed away peacefully in her sleep early on the morning of July 27, 2023.
Marion lived much of her life in Tennessee, where she raised two children, Kevin (d. 2001) and Janine. She had a career that included various bookkeeping jobs and many hobbies, including square dancing, bingo, and keeping her own personal weather almanacs. She retired in the late 90s to the small farm in McEwen she once shared with her late husband Monroe, a place her grandchildren fondly remember staying as children, where they slept on her couches and woke early in the morning to the sound of guinea fowl and chickens. The days would be spent playing outside, picking vegetables from the huge garden, watching television, and rifling for prizes through the boxes of Avon that were always on hand. The square dances she took her grandchildren to are remembered by them all, as was the time she spent teaching them so many card games. The gumballs in the miniature machine on her coffee table were always a source of interest!
