Mrs. C. A. Dunn passed away at the home of her parents [William Bowman and Xantippe Lee] at Pendleton, Ore., Saturday [June 3, 1922] after a long illness. Following an operation in Spokane last spring, she went to her parents’ home at Pendleton to recuperate, returning here several weeks ago apparently greatly improved in health. Believing that her complete recovery would be more rapid at Pendleton, Mr. Dunn prevailed upon her to return there shortly after coming home but a relapse occurred and a week ago Tuesday, Mr. Dunn and son, Ray, were summoned to Pendleton because of her serious condition, arriving there just an hour or two before she went into a state of coma from which she never rallied.
Mrs. Dunn was 28 years old and had spent her girlhood at Sprague, Wash., and Pendleton, Ore. With her husband, she came here 15 years ago and this since had been their home. She is survived by her husband and son, Ray, her parents, and two sisters who reside at Pendleton.
Mrs. Dunn was a member of the Women’s Relief Corps, the Royal Neighbors, the Women’s Benefit Association of the Maccabees, and the Women of Woodcraft, and she was an ardent worker in all of these organizations.
The funeral was held Monday at Pendleton where the high esteem in which she was held both there and in this city was attested by the floral tributes banked about the casket and which required two trucks to transport to the cemetery. Many of the flowers were telegraphed from Sandpoint friends and the organizations of which she was a member.
Mr. Dunn and his son, Ray, returned yesterday from Pendleton. [Interment at Olney Cemetery]
