I remember Miss Dunham as a caring teacher when I, Arlene Witt, was a student at the one room Hixon School. She was one on the teachers who inspired me to have a 43 year teaching career. I wish that more information would have been included in the obit. I would like to know how many years she taught all together, what her other interest were besides teaching, how long she lived in her home on Highway 51 etc. It was great to see that she lived a long life.
