Kathleen (Marie) Dunn

June 5, 1930 – January 15, 2021
Marie was born Kathleen Marie Tinnion in Whitehaven, Cumbria, England, in 1930 to parents Harry and Jean Tinnion. Marie moved to Workington where she danced with, then married Ronnie Dunn in 1953.
Blessed with two children, they moved to San Antonio, Ibiza, Spain in the early 70’s where they ran the Bar La Calle for several years before immigrating to Canada and settling in Nanaimo BC in 1981.
An active member of the British Club for several years, Marie was also known to enjoy a good game of badminton.
Marie lost many good friends over the years and will be missed by those that remain.
She was predeceased by her husband Ron (1992), and leaves behind son Philip (Jan) and daughter Joanna (Jeff), 4 grandchildren, Becca (Laura), Marcus (Stephanie), Kate and Ashton, great-grandchild Benjamin, and nieces and nephews in England and Spain.
The family would especially like to thank the staff of the Hospice at Trillium Lodge for their wonderful care and attention to Marie in her final days, where a nice cup of tea was always ready.
Cremation has taken place, with her ashes to be spread on a future sunny day.
