Obituaries » Kathleen L. Dunne

Kathleen Ribble Lunsford Dunne, 91, of Midland, died February 21, 2019, in Warrenton.

A native of Petersburg, she was born August 5, 1927, to the late Irving Claiborne Lunsford and Kathleen Anderson Ribble Lunsford at their home on Berkley Avenue.

A lover of all creatures great and small, Mrs. Dunne was most devoted to horses and was an avid admirer of “The Sport of Kings,” Thoroughbred horse racing. Her happiest days were spent watching several of her own Thoroughbreds race in Maryland, Delaware and West Virginia and doting on them when they returned home to Aulerton, the home that she and her husband, “Gerry” shared for over 53 years.

She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Gerald John Dunne of Midland; her daughter, Kathleen Anderson Ribble Dunne Watson of Dunnsville; her granddaughter, Kristen Watson Henshaw of Richmond; her great-grandchildren, Nate and Isabell Henshaw of Richmond; a nephew, Irving C. Lunsford III of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.; a niece, Barbara L. Groves of Flower Mound, Texas, and several beloved cousins.

She was predeceased by her her brother, Irving C. Lunsford Jr., and by many four-legged friends of all sizes, which she loved dearly.

A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, March 4, at Blandford Cemetery, 319 S. Crater Road, Petersburg. While there will be no viewing, it is suggested that those attending the service meet at the Petersburg location of J.T. Morris and Sons Funeral Home, 103 S. Adams St., where a procession to Blandford Cemetery will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Fauquier County SPCA or to the Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Richmond Chapter.
