DUNN, Mary Isabel (nee Carmichael) Died after a very long battle with cancer, on April 10, 2012 in Victoria BC. She was born on February 15, 1931 in Duncan BC. Survived by her husband Warren, children Les (Yvonne) Dunn, Marlene Spencer (Jim), Elaine (Randy) Swan, Marnie (Wade) Tower, her grandchildren, Ben Dunn, Jake Swan, and Madisen and Landon Tower. She will be greatly missed by many other relatives and many, many friends. Warren and Mary first met at a BC Forest Dance and it was love at first sight. They were married in Victoria June 29th, 1957. At that time, Mom was a waitress at Ian's Coffee Shop. She then went on to work for BC Forest Plywood sorting plywood, and soon realized it was not for her and went into hairdressing school, where she did well enough to open her own salon, which she had for many years in her home. They then moved to Duncan in 1968 for Dad's work, and Mom continued working at a local salon for a few more years. Shorty after she was then hired on to work at Safeway where she happily worked for over 20 years, retired early and became a snowbird", travelling to Palm Springs, Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and anywhere WARM during those winter months until it was no longer a possibility. It was then, when Warren and Mary decided to move back to Victoria in 1997 to live closer to family. When I come to the end of the road, And the sun has set for me, I want no tears, or gloom filled room. Why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little but not too long. And not with your head bowed low, Remember the love we always shared, Miss me, but let me go!" To honor Mom's wishes, there is no funeral and no service at her request. Her remains were scattered at her most favorite place in the world.
