Adeline Dunbar, 90, of Hot Springs, passed away February 12, 2017. Addie was born in Chicago, Illinois, to the late Sam and Ethel Demopoulos.

In 1947 while working in her father’s coffee shop, Addie met a young serviceman named Frank Dunbar. They married the following year and shared more than 68 years of faith, friendship, and family. Addie and Frank’s love never faltered and they never forgot how to have fun together.

Addie’s life was about her family. As a young mother, she volunteered as Linda’s Girl Scout Leader and Sunday School Teacher. Later when she became a grandmother, her life became sleepovers, outings, and any way she could spoil her grandchildren.

Meeting Addie in Heaven will be her sons, James and Robert, and her step son Lawrence.

Her memory will be cherished by her husband Frank Dunbar; daughter Linda (David) Hickman; grandchildren Desiree Kise, Kelsey Dunbar, Tracey (Johnny) Byrne, Tammy (Tyler) Kamholz, Kimberly (Franco) DeAstis; and seven great grandchildren.

A Celebration of Addie’s Life will be held in the chapel of Gross Funeral Home on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at 11am.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks you to consider Marklund Children’s Home, 1 South 450 Wyatt Dr., Geneva, IL. , 60134.
