Maryann 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.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, December 23, 2016 in the St. Patrick Shrine Church, 152 E. Pomfret St., Carlisle, with Rev. Don Bender officiating.  There will no viewing or visitation.  Burial will be held at a later date in Arlington National Cemetery.  Ewing Brothers Funeral Home, Carlisle, is in charge of the arrangements.  Memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association, 1019 Mumma Rd., Wormleysburg, PA 17043.  Please visit www.Since1853.com to send condolences.

It was with great sadness that I read of the passing of Mrs. Dunn.  My heart goes out to Jim and the family in your time of grief.

In the words of Robert Louis Stevenson, "Like a bird singing in the rain, let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow."

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..
