Eunice A. Dunn, the daughter of Clara Marie (Lundquist) and Eugene Walfred Rudolph Rydquist, was born September 19, 1915 in Decatur County, Kansas. She departed this life on Friday, December 17, 2010 at the Webster County Community Hospital in Red Cloud, Nebraska at the age of 95 years, 2 months and 28 days. Eunice spent her childhood years in Decatur County on the family farm in the Lund community southwest of Oberlin, Kansas, which was homsteded her grandfather, Erland Rydquist. She received her formal education attending the Excelsior school and attended the Lund Covenant Church. On September 26, 1937 she was united in marriage with Gene R. Dunn in Washington state. This union was blessed with eight children. They made their home in Hastings and Inavale, later moving to Red Cloud. Eunice was employed for over twenty-five years with the Webster County Community Hospital. She remained in her home until December 1, 2003, when she moved to the Heritage Care Center. Eunice's personality was pervaded by a determined commitment to her principles and a desire to help others. She remained active throughout her life and volunteered her musical talents playing both the piano and accordion, entertaining the resident of the Heritage for many years. Through the years she enjoyed working with her flowers and yard, and was always ready for a competitive game of dominos. She loved to play the organ and gather with her friends. Her greatest loved and enthusiasm in life was for her family, and she especially cherished the time they spent together. She was faithful in remembering birthdays and special occasions, and will be lovingly remembered by family and friends for her quick wit and endearing nature. Preceding her in death were her parents; her husband, Gene, on December 16, 1978; a daughter, Vicki Lynn Sibley on November 10, 1967; son, Steven Douglas Dunn on August 21, 1995; four sisters, Rena Hickson, Goldie Raulston, Neva Brown and Muriel Rydquist; and two brothers Norris and Kenneth Rydquist. Left to treasure her memory are her children, Robert N. Dunn of Denver, Colorado; Donald G. Dunn of Red Cloud; David D. Dunn and wife Oma of Blue Hill, Nebraska; Sharon L. Kudrna and husband Ron of Red Cloud; Hiriam J. Dunn of Holstein, Nebraska; and Pauline M. Dunn and Larry Niles of Griswold, Iowa; 12 grandchildren; 19 great grandchildren; other relatives and friends.
