Linda Lou Dunham of Caro, age 68, passed away on Friday, March 17, 2017 at Covenant Medical Center – Cooper in Saginaw. Linda was born January 19, 1949 in Cass City, the daughter of the late J. D. and Mae (Brown) Harneck, and was a 1967 graduate of Kingston High School. While growing up, she had two special horses, Surfer Girl and Misty. Linda was united in marriage with Dennis Dunham on July 20, 1969 at the Kingston United Methodist Church. Her working years were spent as a nurse’s aide for Caro Community Hospital and the Tuscola County Medical Care Community. Her most important job, however, was caring for her family as a homemaker. She was a member of the Kingston United Methodist Church. She loved to give furniture a second chance, and was able to spot treasures that could be repurposed while visiting rummage sales with her husband. She also enjoyed collecting antiques, especially dishes, gardening, and going to the beach. Even in declining health, Linda’s seven granddaughters were always on her mind.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 47 years, Dennis Dunham of Caro; three children and their spouses, Sonya and Gary Sy of Sebewaing, Shaun and Jessie Dunham of Caro, Julie and Randy Clink of Caro; her seven grandchildren, affectionately referred to as the “Seven Pack”, Kayla and Bailey Sy, Stephanie, Madison, and Claire Dunham, Kyliee LaRose, and Addison Clink.
