Anne V. Dunkle, 93, passed away Thursday, Jan. 9, 2014. She was born to Dominic and Katerina Voscinar on Aug. 4, 1920, in Palmerton, Pa., and raised in Masaryktown, Fla.
The Guest Book is expired.
Anne proudly worked with the Civil Service for 20 years until retiring from the Hurlburt Field, Fla., location. A vivacious woman of great heart, humility, integrity and humor, Anne was deeply loved and admired by those who knew her. She was always known to present an unmistakable radiating and beaming smile. Anne and Russ (married 62 years) made many cities their home as they traveled throughout the world while Russ was serving in the Air Force, finally settling in Fort Walton Beach in 1969. They are a true testament to the sanctity and commitment of what a dynamic marriage represents.
Anne is survived by her sister, Josephine Malloch; sister in-law, Louise Voscinar; daughter, Katy Spence and husband, Patrick; son, Jerry and wife, Pat; and son, Jim and wife, Karen. Grandchildren include grandson, Jim Rowell and wife, Patty, (great-grandson, James Riley Rowell, and great-granddaughter, Katy Jane Rowell); grandson, Christopher Dunkle; granddaughter, Rebekah Cox and husband, Kevin, (great-granddaughters, Natalie and Hannah); and step-granddaughter, Andrea Burkett and husband, Jeremy (children, Ashley, Kloe, Nahdia, Jayda and Avery). She was preceded in her death by her parents; husband, Russell J. Dunkle; brothers, Frank Voscinar and Steve Voscinar and wife, Augie.
