Betty Sue Dunn


Betty Sue Dunn, 76, a resident of Cleveland, entered her forever home on Saturday, June 27, 2020.  She now resides with her Heavenly Father.

She graduated from College Hill High School in Cleveland. Shortly after graduation, Betty enlisted in the U.S. Army and received an honorable discharge for her service. She worked for 32 years at Bendix (Honeywell), as an inspector.

Betty joined Mt. Eagle Missionary Baptist Church, in Charleston, at an early age. She became a member of the Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church in 1992. During her devoted membership, she served on the usher board and truly loved her position. Betty served with a cheerful attitude, as she welcomed worshippers into the sanctuary. She also enjoyed working in the kitchen and serving in the fellowship hall.

Betty loved to cook for her children, grandchildren and extended family on special occasions and holidays. No child would go hungry in her household, and all were welcome at her table to enjoy a delicious, well-cooked, old-fashioned meal.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Thursia Dunn; four brothers: Melvin Dunn, Thomas Dunn Jr., Franklin Eugene Dunn Sr. and James Allen Dunn; and sisters-in-law: Willa Dunn and Jean Scott.

Her survivors include daughters: Holly Jacinta (Ben) Davis and Lisa Darlene Arnold; grandchildren: Taleishea Davis, Leyasia Woods, DeMarcus Arnold, Bianca Davis and Isaiah Davis; great-grandchildren: Taleeah Jones, Tru Jones and Terrell Jones; sister, Sylvia (Wyman) Lewis of Cumming, Ga.; brother, Ronald Dunn of Cleveland; sisters-in-law: Beverly Dunn and Barbara Dunn; a special military buddy, Mary Tomey; several devoted friends; and a host of devoted nieces and nephews.

The funeral will be Friday, July 3, 2020, at 1 p.m. at Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church, with the Rev. Mark Pollard delivering the eulogy. Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens with the military honor guard.

The body will lie in repose from noon until 1  p.m. at the church on Friday, and from 4 to 6 p.m. on Thursday at M.D. Dotson & Sons Funeral Home, Cleveland.

The funeral home will continue to be in compliance with COVID-19. Masks are required and social distancing will be monitored.
