Barbara "Babs" Dunn Obituary
Barbara "Babs" Dunn, who came to Brattleboro late in life (before moving on to Albuquerque, NM), passed away peacefully on February 22, 2017, surrounded by loving family members.

After graduating from Muskingum University she entered Hartford Seminary where she met and married Larry Dunn, her lifetime partner. While raising three children, she obtained her teacher's certification, then a masters in special education, followed by a masters in library science, then a masters in education administration.

After retiring from a lifetime of working in public education, she returned to school and obtained her associates degree in nursing so that she could become a field nurse for Head Start in rural upstate New York. After several years she left Head Start to relocate near her youngest daughter in order to help raise her five granddaughters.

She moved to Brattleboro after her husband passed away, and she continued her lifetime of volunteering, including working at the Brattleboro Museum of Art, Winston Prouty, and Center Congregational and All Souls Churches.

Her greatest joy was working with the Theater Adventure Program at NEYT.

Those wishing to celebrate her memory are invited to either make a donation to or attend a performance of TAP.

She is survived by a grateful family of three children, seven grandchildren, and six great grandchildren and a world she made better and happier every day of her life.
