Martita Leonia Dunn, age 62, of Reading, entered eternal life unexpectedly on Monday, July 13, 2020, in Reading Hospital - Tower Health. Born July 9, 1958 in Reading, PA she was the cherished daughter to the late Nina R. (Dunn) Epes and Joseph L. Epes.

Martita grew up in New Jersey and attended Lakewood High School. She made a career as a certified nurses aide for over 30 years, working at Reading Hospital and also in private home care. Martita also worked at Baldwin Brass for 6 years.

Martita was a godly woman who loved the Lord. Her Christian faith was instilled by her mother and was the foundation of who she was and everything she did. Her faith in Jesus never wavered during any trial or storm.

A beautiful woman with a beautiful heart too big to describe, Martita’s kindness, wit, and truly compassionate nature, touched all blessed enough to know her. She was truly a joy to know and most that knew her loved her very gentle yet stern demeanor.

Martita loved cleaning her house and clean it she did - it was immaculate; but that was not her only interest. She was passionate about interior design and decorating. Her own home was an example of this passion. However, above all else she truly loved her family, especially her 5 boys.

Martita's spirit will be carried on by her 4 sons; Quadir Thornton, Tyriek Thornton, Tyshon Dunn and Endaisha Thornton. She also leaves behind 8 grandchildren; Sadea, Rahmel, Raeshan, Liajah, Jalia, Reek Jr., Ameria, Lovae and several Great grandchildren to cherish her memory.
