John and Beth, may the care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. I only met your mother a few times as child or teen but I clearly remember her pretty smile and beautiful poise. She was a kind lady who made you feel like you were the only one in the world when she spoke to you. My most sincere condolences.

John, Beth, John Jr, Aiden and The Dunne Family.
Sending love and condolences during this time of sadness. Your Mom had a wonderfully full life surrounded by her beautiful grandchildren and devoted family.. Now she’s gone home to be with her husband. So sorry for your loss.

Carmel, Paul, John, Maureen, Corinne, & Peter, & all family members…..I’m very sorry to hear of Isabelle’s passing. it’s been a very long time since I’ve visited Newfoundland, but have wonderful memories of visiting your family. I’ll always remember Isabelle’s warmth & humour &, yes, those smiling eyes

Take care of yourselves.


My sincerest condolences to the Dunne family on this loss. Mrs. Dunne was part of my adolescence, she and John always so welcoming to their childrens’ friends. Mr. Dunne made us laugh, Mrs. Dunne’s eyes were always smiling. She was a lovely woman. I am sorry I was out of town for the funeral. I would have honoured her memory by attending the sad farewell. Best wishes to her large loving family, but especially my school friend Maureen.

Maureen…so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom.

Corinne and family, so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. She will live in your hearts forever.

Dear Isabelle
Your passing is heavy on my heart. You have been such a loving person to me in my life since I was small girl.
When I was living in town expecting the twins – your kind & loving heart was just what I needed. We had such fun times: especially watching Y & R, and having our snacks.
Every year – never missed. I cherished your Christmas Cards, always signed by you & I still have everyone.
I am so blessed to have had you in my life. You always made me feel so special. And your sense of humour – oh my. I would be in stitches.
I am so sad to hear of your passing. Words can not begin to express how I feel about you Isabelle.
I love you forever & always. XXOO
