Born in Dover, DE on December 12, 1939, Mrs. Dunn was the daughter of the late Paul Leon Longfellow and Elizabeth Wheeler Longfellow. Her husband, William Earl Dunn died October 31, 2006.
Mrs. Dunn was a graduate of Greensboro High School and Goldie Beacom College. After graduation, her career led to a one year post in Puerto Rico for a newspaper, then 3 years at Maryland National Bank in Easton.
