Peggy Jean Dunn (1930-2015)

On March 5, 2015, Peggy Jean Bernard Dunn, of Arbuckle, passed from this life to her eternal home in Heaven. She was 84 years old. She was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Gene Dunn; her mother and step-father Maude and Virgil Highley of Burney, CA; brothers Danny Highley of Burney and Harold Bernard of Gridley, CA.

She is survived by her three children and their spouses; Geogria and Bill Hoag of WA, Karyn and David Burgess of Arbuckle and Jerry and DebbieDunn of Alturas and sister Virginia Smith of Burney. She also leaves behind six grandsons and their wives, 24 great-grandchildren, several nieces and mephews and their families.

Peggy was born on April 1, 1930 in Klamath Falls, OR and grew up in the Burney, CA area. When she moved to Alturas, she met her husband and love of her life, Gene A. Dunn. They were married on March 12, 1949 and raised their family in Alturas.

Peggy wore many hats during her lifetime. Along with being a devoted wife and mother, she was a telephone operator, a nursing assistant at Modoc Hospital and later Warnerview. In the 1970’s and 80’s, she helped Gene run Dunn’s Custom Meats and also provided daycare for many young children in Alturas as P.J.’s Daycare.

She had many fond memories of camping, fishing and hiking in the Warner Mountains with friends and family. They loved Bear Flat and east Creek and taught their grandsons how to fish and camp and enjoy the outdoors. She especially enjoyed riding her Honda trail bike.

In 1997, Peggy and Gene moved to Arbuckle to be closer to their growing family and she became Memaw to her great-grandchildren, a role she truly cherished. Peggy was a devoted Christian and affected many lives with her prayers, giving and knowledge of God’s Word. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

The family is having a Celebration of Life at the Arbuckle Christian Fellowship, 7th and Hall st., Arbuckle, on Monday March 9, 2015 at 11:00a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations’ be made in Peggy’s name to the Woodland Memorial Hospital or to the charity of your choice.
