Bernice J Spitler Dunn
Birth: Dec. 6, 1925
Wood County
Ohio, USA
Death: Oct. 15, 1993
Lucas County
Ohio, USA

Daughter of Paul Spitler and Coral Frederick. Married John Dunn February 8, 1947 in Lucas County, Ohio. There is another marriage record December 7, 1947 in Angola, Steuben County, Indiana.

Mrs. Dunn was a school teacher at Keyser Elementary in Toledo, Ohio and in the Toledo school system for 27 years. She earned a Bachelor of Education and Master of Education from the University of Toledo. She was the former president of the International Reading Association, lectured at Bluffton College, and was one of the first teachers in the Horizons program. She taught at Blessed Sacrament School, St. Clement's School and Martin School. She was also Teacher Of The Year and received many awards during her career.

Mrs. Dunn kept an article in her wallet that fit Mrs. Dunn really well and the outlook she had on life. It read:

"No one has stated it better than Bessie A. Stanley, writer. She says: 'He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who has gained respect of intelligent men, the trust of pure women and the love of children; who has left the world a better place than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who has looked for the best in others and given them the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory was a benediction.' I wish the world could honestly write that on my tombstone." Author of publication unknown.

Obituary is in Toledo Blade October 16, 1993
