God saw the road was getting rough The hills were hard to climb -
He gently closed those loving eyes, And whispered, "Peace be thine."

C0he (]bitua~y
Mrs. Elma L. Dunn was born on May 15, 1913 to Mary E. Irvin and John Danford of Jones County, Georgia. She was devoted to and later reared by the late Mr. and Mrs. Walter White, her aunt and uncle. She attended Jones County Schools and Beta Etta College. On June 28, 1931, she was married to Mr. William H. Dunn of Macon, Georgia.
Prior to her marriage, she taught school after which she never worked outside the home. However, she had a most important job- that of providing and caring for her family. As a wife and mother of nine children, her most important roles were those of counselor, friend, motivator, inspirer, confidante, spiritual advisor and greatest of all MOTHER.
With her gentle spirit, soft-spoken voice and beautiful character, she guided her children throughout all their endeavors from a mere concern or a most important decision relative to their personal and professional lives. She enjoyed and appreciated her family; in other words, she viewed her family as a gift from God.
While living in Macon, Mrs. Dunn was an active member of Greater Allen Chapel A.M.E. Church. She served on several church boards and was a member of other church affiliations; specifically, Stewardess Board No. 2, The Allenites Club and the Women's Missionary Society. Recently she was appointed Stewardess Emeritus. During the past several years, Mrs. Dunn had lived with her children and worshipped at several churc hes in Atlanta.
Preceding Mrs. Dunn in death were her son and husband, William H.Dunn, Jr. and Sr., respectively.
Mrs. Dunn, formerly of 2019 Douglass Avenue (Walnut Street Extension) passed on Tuesday, July 4, 1995, in Atlanta , Georgia, after a long illness. She leaves to cherish her memory, her devoted children, Mr. and Mrs. Olin (Gwendolyn) Hart, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph D.

Mother, You Were The Wind Beneath Our Wings
It must have been cold there in our shadows, To never have sunlight 011 your face, You were content to let us shine
While y ou always walked a step behind.
We were the ones with all the glory; You were the one with all the strength.
Only a face without a name; We never once heard you complain.
It might have appeared to go unnoticed, But we 've got it all right here in our hearts And we hope you knew that we knew the truth, We would have been nothing without you.
Did you ever know that you were our hero, And everything we'd like to be? We can fly higher than eagles,
Because Mother, you were the wind beneath our wings!
Your Devoted Children William (deceased), Gwendolyn, Joseph, Julia,
Bessie, George, Richard, Gloria, Norman
