D. Dunn, 84, of Carlisle, passed away on Sunday, December 18, 2016 at her home. She was born on September
18, 1932 in Forest Hills, Queens, NY, and was the only daughter of the late Henry and Mary E. (Waligura) Daszewski.
She was much loved by her family and encouraged to learn
and be inquisitive - attending Bryant College in Providence, Rhode Island before starting her career working for an advertising
firm in Manhattan in 1950. Maryann met her husband, James Dunn, while in college and soon they married
and started a 30 year adventure with the Army. The Dunns traveled many places over those years - both here in the States and
in Europe, raising two children along the way. She was a caring and attentive parent, always willing to listen and provide
guidance. As a military wife, Maryann worked with lots of women on many different activities over the years. One of her fondest
memories was publishing a cook book - which was a compilation of favorite recipes of military families. Additionally, her
volunteer work as a Grey Lady and supporting the local libraries was also important to her. Maryann became the manager at
the U.S. Army War College Book Store as her youngest child was getting ready to go to college. She thoroughly enjoyed working
there and had many fond memories and friendships from those days. Her husband and children were privileged
to have had her in their lives. Wife, mother, friend - we will carry her in our hearts forever.
She is survived by her devoted husband of 63 years,
COL (Ret) James F. Dunn, Jr., US Army, one daughter, Jessica (and her husband, Philip) DeMarais of Hollywood, MD, one son,
Major (Ret) Mark Jeffrey Dunn, US Army (and his wife, Chom Suk) Dunn of Martinez, GA and one step-grandson, James Brinkley.

To a wonderful woman who was always kind
and loving like a mother to me. I loved stories of her life in the military with Colonel Dunn. She was a model in my
life as I thought of her daily while myself being a military spouse
for 27 years. Lots of love and prayers to
You all during this sad time..
