In memory of
Betty Dunn Hathaway
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother, neighbor and friend Betty Dunn Hathaway, on Tuesday, March 27. She will be remembered for her kindness, gentle disposition, and her many, many friendships through the years. Betty was born on the family farm in Ellsworth, Illinois, on March 26, 1930, where she spent her childhood. She met Curtis Dunn, Jr. from Lexington, Illinois, on a trip to Los Angeles; they were subsequently married and moved to Yuma, AZ in 1957, where they raised two boys. Betty was employed by Yuma High School as the counseling secretary for 22 years. After Curt passed away in 1983, she retired and was by herself for five years when she met Hank Hathaway, a widowed 'snowbird' from Washington State, who swept her off her feet. They were then married and spent many wonderful years traveling in their motorhome, as well as internationally to England, France, Spain and Morocco. They settled in Ahwatukee and became members of the Dayspring United Methodist Church. Betty was very active in her retirement, volunteering at various hospitals as well as doing community service with Hank through his involvement with Shrine until his passing in 2002. She was a member of Beta Sigma Phi sorority, Red Hats, as well as Daughters of the Nile, where she played her drum for Shrine ceremonies. Betty is survived by her sons Steve (Theresa) of Meridian, Idaho, and Stuart (Caroline) of Tempe; her brother Gerald (Donna) of Illinois; and grandchildren, Claren, Haley, Dustin, Garret, and Ellen. She was dearly loved by all of her friends and neighbors. A memorial service will be held on April 7, 2:30 pm at Dayspring United Methodist Church, 1365 E. Elliot Road, Tempe, AZ 85284. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Shriners Hospital or Ladies of the Nile Foundation.
