Betti Jean Dunn remembrance
We are heartbroken to announce the passing of our mother, Ms. Betti Jean Dunn. She passed away peacefully, at the age of 69, in her Kingsport, Tennessee home.
Betti is survived by her sister, Mrs. Alfreda Wilson; sons Behm-Azis Dunn, and wife Tiffany, N'Kobi Dunn, and wife Sara and Rashid Dunn, and wife Jennifer; 4 nieces, Curshina, Kanjuette, Aisha, and Taneshia; 14 grandchildren; and numerous cousins.
What our mother loved most was spending time with friends & family, traveling, and tending to her many flowers. Gladiolus were her favorite.
To honor Betti Jean's memory the family is holding a Celebration of Life service on Sunday, August 6, 2023, at Clark Funeral Chapel & Cremation Service, 802-806 E. Sevier Ave. Kingsport, Tennessee, from 2 pm until 3 pm.
We invite anyone who may have shared a laugh, hug, or smile with our dear mother to attend and remember her wonderful life.
