On Monday, May 15th, 2022. The majestic bells rejoiced for Mona Dunn, 80 years young from Bloomfield, CT affectionately known as Mom-mom or Aunty Mona to many. Born in the Macca Tree district of Saint Catherine, Jamaica W.I. The third child of the late Cyril and Estrinetta Henry. She started her humble educational quest at Eccleston Primary School in St. Catherine. Her next step was Moneaque Teacher's College in order to follow her passion until she became a teacher. She taught at Melrose All-Age School in Kingston, Jamaica for many years. Mona was married to Lydon Dunn and later migrated to U.S.A in the 1970s to Hartford, CT and finally settled in Bloomfield, CT. She continued her educational pursuits at the Greater Hartford Community College, Prince Technical Vocational School and finally The University of Hartford. Upon her graduation she then embarked on her 2nd lifetime career as a Nurse (LPN). She refined all of her nursing skill sets at many facilities in the Hartford County area until her retirement in 2011.
Mona was an avid, ardent and devoted Seventh-Day Adventist who could quote the many passages of the Bible from years devotional study and dedicated commitment to knowledge. She was well known, loved and respected by the members of the Seventh-day Community near and far in the world. Another favorite pastime was studying to become knowledgeable on alternative treatments, herbal medicine as it relates to well-being for the longevity of life in the latter years. She would readily defend her beliefs by delivering sermons or discussions on the various topics to everyone who shared the same or different points of view on health. She has been a world of valuble resources to many and has mentored countless individuals to different professions in life.
Mona's departure has reminded everyone of that one important fact it is necessary to have a relationship with the Lord now and forevermore. We should never lose sight of this fact throughout our journey in life.
Her legacy will continue through her two sons Ian and Andre Dunn and four grand children Ianna, Arianna, Chloe and Tylar Dunn. Along with the support of two strong minded daughters-in-law Sandra and Latrice Dunn.
Her memories will be cherished by her brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, great-grand nieces and nephew from the HENRY and DUNN FAMILY TREE. Also, by the friends and families of the community and Church in the U.S.A., Canada, England and Jamaica.
Our hearts may be overwhelmed with grief and sorrow now, but we seek solace and refuge in the fact that there is no more pain or suffering for her. We will reflect on the pleasant memories of the past and from this time forward think that she has serenity and peace in the arms of the Lord.
The Dunn family is eternally grateful for the compassion, comfort and care provided by Sandy Sargeant of Caring Solutions with Yvonne Jones and The Masonic Home and Hospice Care Services. The dedication and services provided made the bitter pill a little easier to swallow and helped to dry the watery eyes a bit faster.
Special thanks to all the lifelong family, friends and acquaintances for their unwavering support and assistance throughout her special time
on earth and thereafter.
