It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lorraine Marion Dunn. She passed away at her home in Sea Brook, surrounded by her family on September 16, 2019 at the age of 66. Lorraine was born August 6, 1953 in Bear River. She was a daughter of late Maurice and Marion Dunn of Bear River.

Lorraine was predeceased by her infant daughter Stacey Lee and is survived by her spouse Murray Ross, whom she loved dearly, her children Nicole (William) Wallace Clementsvale, Jonathan(Lyndsay)Perkins Whitecourt Alberta, and grandchildren Nicholas Wallace, Alexander Wallace, and Gage Perkins. Her grandsons were her pride and joy. Lorraine is also survived by her brother George (Yvonne) Dunn, Texas; her 5 sisters Bonnie (Stan Locke)VanTassell, Digby, Avon Longmire, Bridgewater, Sharon (Webster)Sweet Bedford. Pamela (Robert Sr.) Wood Massachusetts, Cindy (Allison) Darke Deer Island, NB and her multiple nieces and nephews.

Lorraine was a hard working woman. She was a member of the Clementsvale Baptist Church where she had been a Sunday school teacher for many years. Her tasty brown bread, seafood chowder, and awesome birthday cakes were well known to the community. Lorraine and Murray built all the furniture they have in their home. Lorraine’s bookkeeping skills were employed in many ventures such as DARC and expansion of Digby Wharf. In recent years she worked at Tri-County Truck Marine as the office manager, which she loved and had a special friendship with Tracy McBride. Lorraine enjoyed gardening and being around family and friends. She always knew how to light up a room with her beautiful smile. The family would like to thank everyone including family and friends, and Nurses, and Doctors for their support. We would like to especially thank Dr. Roy Harding for everything you did to help mom. We feel without this care we would not have been able to enjoy the additional years with her.

Donations can be made in lieu of flowers to VON Digby/Clare and Digby/Clare Home Support Agency. Funeral services will be held at Clementsvale Baptist Church, Clementsvale on Friday September 20, 2019 at 1:00pm. Officiating will be Rev. Linda DeMone.
