Deborah was always so optimistic and sweet. She had such a sweet presence and smile. I truly enjoyed working with her at Pilgrim. The only time she would slightly raise her voice was when church was over and she had to look for Cameron! She was a joy to be around and will always be missed. Rest on sweet sister & may God comfort your family during this time of bereavement.

With deepest sympathy,

Mrs. Dunn was an amazing woman and I'm glad I got the chance to know her. She was my favorite teacher at Callaway High and influenced the career path I took in the sciences. She cared about her students inside and outside the classroom and for that I will forever be greatful. I will truly miss her and my prayers are with her family.

Truly Deborah was an inspiration to all that she came in contact with. She was and angel sent from Heaven above. Kelvin, my prayers as well as sympathy definately goes out to you and your family. Just know that Deborah may not be here any longer with you in the flesh, but know that she will always be here with you in the spirit. There's a song that comes to mind when I think of what you and your family must be going through. It is called "Celebrate My Life In Your Heart". Hold on to her memories by Celebrating the life that she lived in your heart. She is smilling down on you!

Hey my brother. I know that there are no words on the earth to ever comfort the pain you and your family must be feeling. But there are words from the creator Himself that can do it. His words will comfort your heart and mind and soul. I love you brother and I'm sorry that I can't be there for you at this time physically, but know that i am spiritually. Sincerely, Darrell and family.

Deborah is a very special person.. By losing her , I lost a sister .. She fought very hard and had an unusual battle with cancer.. She had every bump in the road, and yet never gave up.. She fought until her last day, and had an unwitnessed faith and trust in the Lord.. We will all miss her dearly, as she left this life so early....
She is in a better place and in good hands right now.. Where she doesn't have to hurt and suffer anymore ..
My deepest condolences go to Kevin and her children and her mom.. They are special people and they will be in my thoughts and prayers...
Posted by Glenn Goodson on July 6, 2016

Mrs. Dunn always had a big smile on her face and an encouraging word to say no matter what the situation maybe good or bad. I think bad to all the conversations that I had with her and she made me always she things from a different perspective in a positive way. I know Mrs. Dunn is resting in heaven watching over all of us as angel smiling down on Earth. Love you Mrs. Dunn and may you rest in peace.

What a tribute to Deborah to see and read what she meant to so many. She certainly let the light of Christ shine through her to so many who needed an encouraging word. I have been so fortunate to walk through a short span of life with her and look forward to seeing her again on the other side!

I don't think I've ever met a kinder soul than that of Deborah Dunn. I had the privilege of knowing her while I attended Callaway Middle School. There was never a moment where she wasn't smiling. If you were having a bad day, she was there to instantly brighten it. From laughing and cutting up with you, to always asking how your day was, she constantly made an effort to build a relationship with her students. She motivated and inspired many with her unweilding strength. Fly high Mrs. Dunn, you were definitely loved , and will certainly be missed by many.

IF it wasn't for her impact on the Callaway family. I have no idea what most of us would've done. She is truly inspirational, beautiful and caring woman. All of us were basically her children to her. Mrs. Dunn R.i.p your presence alone light up the room!

Deborah always made me laugh at CMS when I didn't think even a smile was possible. She was always so positive and always had a smile on her face. I remember us walking the survivors walk together two years ago at Paint the Town Pink. She was so full of life! Praying for Jesus to wrap her family in his arms and ease their sorrow. RIP my sweet friend.

I thoroughly enjoyed working with Mrs. Dunn at Callaway Middle School. I loved her spirit, genuineness, constant encouragement, love for the students, love for her family, her voice, and her smile. My family will be praying for the Dunn family.

Deborah Dunn is a name that emits a smile, because that is what we saw at CMS, no matter the situation. Along with that smile was a gentle voice of encouragement and genuine love for all. She taught many by example how to live for Christ and show that love. Now, she is finally "home" at the feet of her Lord Jesus Christ where others she knew will be smiling to see her again. 
  I do continue to pray for your whole family during this difficult time. 
             With love and respect,

A friendship like no other!!!!

Shared by Sharon Whylly on July 6, 2016

I met this wonderful woman and her family about 10 years ago through a young man i was dating at the time, and from the moment we met my spirit took to her like we were friends for years and even though that relationship did not last, i was thankful because it gave me a friend for life.

Deborah and Kevin welcomed me with open arms. There would never be a time they would cruise to the Bahamas and i don't know or have a chance to see them even if it's for a short time. I would be sooo excited to here "we are coming on a cruise" I would make sure my work is done because i needed to get off early to meet my friends.

I've never really had a real vacation until this beautiful family came in my life. They made sure my time spent with them in Georgia was restful, full of fun and can't forget food. We would be back and forth about who's vacation was the best. I had them here in the Bahamas for vacation and they had me there in Georgia for my vacation. I still think my vacation top their own.

I will certainly miss this mighty woman of God who made my faith and my trust in God to increase tremendously, as i sat and listened to her story and the struggles and never once i heard her complain or grumble, she went through knowing the Man who held her furture was in control and she put her trust totally in Him.

My sister has ran her race, she has kept the faith, now she waits to receive her crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge will give to her.

Always in my heart Deb.
