Obituary of Carol Anne Dunn

Carol Anne Dunn, age 80, of Hilton Head Island, SC, and formerly of Decatur, GA, passed away peacefully on June 27, 2020. She was predeceased by her husband, the love of her life, Charles (Gene) E. Dunn, Jr.  She was born in Decatur, GA, in 1939, and graduated from Decatur High School in 1957 where she met her husband, Gene.

After graduating from Decatur High School, she and Gene were married and spent several years in the Air Force stationed in England where her daughter, Debra Ellen (Debi), was born. After Gene’s service, they moved to Houston, TX. While in Houston, her son, Charles Eugene (Chuck) Dunn III, was born.

She spent her entire life by Gene’s side and lived in Berwyn, PA, Orchard Park, NY, Barrington, IL, and McLean, VA. After retiring, Carol and Gene, chose to reside in the Long Cove Club with many of their life-long friends from Barrington, McLean, and Orchard Park.  

Carol was an avid cook, pianist, a master bridge player, and loved spending time planting flowers.  She was the consummate grandmother and was affectionately called Mimi.
