Nancy Dunne died at her home on Holmes Beach, FL. She was in no pain and life expired while she was in a deep sleep.
A Memorial Mass will be offered for her at St. Bernard R.C. Church in Holmes Beach on Saturday, October 17. Her wishes were that there be no flowers at her funeral and donations in her name be sent to:
The Diane Downey Reading Enrichment Fund
13663 Rider Trail North
Earth City, MO 63045.
Nancy was initially involved in the work of this Fund because education, especially reading, was paramount in her interests. For the last few years she was a volunteer at the local elementary school tutoring students with learning difficulties, especially reading.
As her dear husband wrote “I will miss her smile and love” … as will we all.
Nancy is a past National President who has been a good friend to all who have been blessed to share life’s journey with her. Nancy has been fighting cancer for several years. The last assembly she was able to attend was our 2007 assembly was in St. Louis. She has always carried a special love for St Vincent’s Parish … let us unite in prayers for Nancy’s peace as well as for her husband Jim and their family.
