MRS. BERNICE DUNN, daughter of Mrs. Rosa Mae Farley and the late Mr. Walter Farley was born July 27, 1958, in Eatonton, Georgia. On October 26, 2022, the Lord visited her home assuring Bernice that the battle had been fought and the victory was won.
She became a member of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Eatonton at a young age.
Bernice received her education in the Putnam County School System and graduated with the Class of 1977. In 1988, Bernice was joined in Holy Matrimony to Larry Dunn. She worked for the Putnam County Board of Education for over ten years until retirement in 2020.
Bernice was a hard worker and made sure that whatever she did, it was done with honor. But don’t let that smile and small frame fool you. Bernice was a woman of many words. What came up came out. She said what she said and meant what she said.
Preceding her in death were her father, Walter Farley; brother, Melvin Farley; and sister, Elizabeth Farley.
