Marsha A. Dunn, 79, of Wausau, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on March 7, 2021.
Marsha was born in South Dakota on July 29, 1941 to Francis and Mary Gail (Hubbard) Tonner. She grew up in Aberdeen, South Dakota and graduated from the University of South Dakota. She married the love of her life, Thomas Robert Dunn, on April 4, 1963 and together they had two children, Ann and Tommy. Marsha was the best mom and wife! She had a big heart and volunteered for many different charities over the years.
When family and friends talk about Marsha, there is one common theme…she was beautiful and classy on the outside but even more beautiful on the inside. She loved everyone and everyone loved her. She was genuine, kind, loyal, devoted, fun and loved her family more than anything in the world. Marsha and Bob had a rare and superb marriage for 56 years – friends say they are a great love – both with a zest for life. “In life, we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, no one else will ever fill.”
Marsha is survived by her husband of 56 years, Thomas “Bob” Dunn; daughter, Ann and her husband Jerry Boomsma; son, Thomas and his wife Monica Dunn; grandchildren, Tonner Dunn and Charlotte Dunn; siblings, Mary Gay Glaser and Tommy Tonner; several nieces and nephews; and many dear friends, both in Wisconsin and Arizona. She is preceded in death by her parents, Francis and Mary Gail Tonner; parents-in-law, Thomas and Bernice Dunn; sister-in-law, MaryJean and her husband Jerry Bollinger; brother-in-law, Jim Dunn; and sister-in-law, Susan Tonner.
