Christine “Louise” Dunn
1943 – 2016
It is with heavy hearts that the family of Christine “Louise” Dunn of Coaldale, beloved wife of Howard Dunn, announce her passing on March 14, 2016 at Chinook Regional Hospital.
Louise leaves behind her husband of 50 years Howard Dunn; her children Dona Moriyama (Rob) of Calgary, Darren Dunn (Jackie) of Turin, Debi Dunn (Eric) of Calgary; grandchildren Colby and Kenzie Moriyama, Amber and Jamey Dunn, Devin Smale, great granddaughter Eco-Lynn Dunn; brothers John (Wendy) VanDenBroeke, Martin VanDenBroeke, sister-in-law Maxine Mehalko, sister-in-law Mel (Dennis) Cleland, brother-in-law Harold Dunn; numerous nieces and nephews; and her cat Tweek. Louise was predeceased by both of her parents.
Louise was born on June 11, 1943 in Lethbridge, Alberta to John and Christina VanDenBroeke. Her father was with the Calgary Highlanders, so during her early years they relocated frequently, until settling in Park Lake Provincial Park where her father was the park warden.
She married Howard on April 3, 1965, and moved to Turin to begin her life on the farm. After 46 years, Louise and Howard retired to Coaldale.
Louise lived for her family and home. Her grandchildren were her pride and joy. They always knew that they could find a safe haven in their grandmother’s arms.
Special thanks to the staff of the ICU unit of the Chinook Regional Hospital for the wonderful care that Louise received.
A private family Graveside service will be held on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at Mountain View Cemetery, Lethbridge, Alberta.
