I will never forget you Mrs. Dunse. From listening to you and all the girls when my mom had “club” at our house and those fun times at Fogland Beach. I am so happy I got to spend some time with you at my Aunt Shirl’s 90th this past winter. You never lost your love for life and your wonderful sense of humor! I envy my Mom for having such wonderful lifelong friends. Rest In Peace. My sincerest sympathy to your family.

Barbara knew how to make any situation into a positive experience. I remember her taking care of Jimmy her husband at home when he became ill. She always gave 100% of her time for the benefit of others first. Our deepest sympathies to the entire Dunse family.

Always laughing and joking. She was loved by all who knew her. Her big heart and fun loving ways will be missed. Her holiday outfits that put a smile on everyones face, the mechanical musical toys for each occasion, our trips to the casino and coming home deaf after seeing John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band at the Mohegan Sun, her ability to eat the whole thing when served and saying I cant eat all that. Our cocktail breaks. But most of all her giving of herself to all who needed her. I will hold her in my memories forever, she meant so much to me as she was such a part of my life and she was my biggest cheerleader. Annie we shared so much of our lives with each other I will miss you. I love you, Marki
