Joyce M. Dunn

February 11, 1938May 2, 2020

Joyce M. Dunn (Harrington), 82, a life-long resident of Skowhegan, Maine, passed away on May 2nd 2020 in her home, surrounded by family. She was born February 11th 1938 to Carlton and Erma Steward. She married Harold Harrington in July 1955. They had four children together, living happily for 25 years. Harold passed unexpectedly in April 1983. She later married David Dunn in July 1993 until his death in May of 2003. Joyce was the most lively person in any room. She was outspoken and never afraid to say what was on her mind. She loved her family more than anything; however, her membership to the Fraternal Order of Eagles was a close second. She will be greatly missed by all. Joyce is survived by her brothers Arnold, Clifford, Lawrence, Terry, and Bobby Steward; her sons Larry Harrington and wife Dawn, Butch Harrington and girlfriend Irene, and Shawn Harrington and wife Brandi; her grandchildren Brad Lang and wife Denise, Torey Lang, Travis Harrington and wife Bobbi-Sue, Casey Harrington, Paige Nisenbaum and husband Jamie, Paul Harrington and fiance Anakaren, Alexis Puccio, Jaide Houghton and husband Bradley, and Delani Harrington; and many great and great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by best friend Betty LePage along with other memorable people in her life Kathy and David LeBrun. She is predeceased by her mother Erma (Mann) Steward, father Carlton Steward, spouses Harold Harrington and David Dunn; siblings Sonny, Gary, Darrell, and Patty Steward; daughter Debra Parlin; and grandson Ronney Lang.

Because of social distancing, a celebration of her life will take place at a later date. Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Smart & Edwards Funeral Home, 183 Madison Ave., Skowhegan, Maine.

I remember her well alway kind and good to me lived across the field from us
I was thinking of her just a few days before she passed
My grandpa niece , a 2nd cousin to me.
My heart goes out to all that love her
And to all her family and friends I am sad for your loss

I will miss seeing her when I go to Maine and miss bringing her Hotcakes and Bacon in the mornings I was up there. I guess I'll have to order the Hotcakes and Bacon and eat it in her memory. She did a lot for me and put up with a lot from me when i was living with her (15-16 years ago) and times were not always pleasant (mostly my fault), but I made sure to try and make up for it ever since. I would vacuum and shampoo her rugs, fix her computer, whatever she wanted, I made sure she got it. I sure did love that old girl and I know she loved me back. =)

I love and miss you aunt Joyce​.

Summer's at Kathy's house will never be the same now that you're gone. You were always the life of any party; certainly never a dull moment. You were a force to be reckoned with, with a larger than life personality. I am glad to have known you and will miss you. To all of Joyce's family and friends, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
