Norma Jean Dunn

d. November 27, 2022

Norma Jean Dunn, 84, of Elliston went home to heaven on November 27, 2022. Norma enjoyed many hobbies from buying and refinishing antiques to showing off her green thumb with her indoor and outdoor plants. She loved elderly people and was a caregiver to people in need in her community. She loved God and her church where she served as Sunday School Secretary/Treasurer at Midway Baptist Church. Norma and CJ enjoyed making trips to North Carolina to visit their daughter and son-in-law and she enjoyed yearly visits to the beach and to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Visits later increased to NC to visit their only grandchild but would always come home to the mountains she called home.

Norma was preceded in death by her parents, Elmo F. Compton and Lillie M. Compton; and brother, Alvah H. Compton. She is survived by her husband Cornelius John “CJ/Neely” Dunn; daughter, Rhonda Dunn Crafton and husband, Don Richard Crafton, Jr.; grandson, Luke Aidan Crafton; sister, Ramona Compton Dunn; and many nieces and nephews. Through this journey the family would like to recognize many special family members, friends and caregivers that made the last three years special for her and the family.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, November 30 from 5 to 8 p.m. at Horne Funeral Home. Funeral services will be on Thursday, December 1 at noon at the Horne Chapel with Danny Collins officiating along with other special speakers. Interment will follow in North Fork Cemetery. The family will receive family and friends at their home after the Interment. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Parkinson’s Foundation.
