Sybil Cole Dunn , 96, died Thursday March 7, 2013.
Sybil was born to William Leslie and Ursula Cole on September 23, 1916, in Paris, Idaho.
She graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Home Economics. Sybil moved to Manassa to teach school and met her future husband, Marcel (Scott) Dunn. During World War II Sybil was an officer in the Navy. After being discharged she returned to Manassa and married Marcel in Taos, New Mexico in 1945. They resided in Bountiful, Manassa, and La Jara until 1963, but returned to the valley often. Family was the top priority for Sybil and Marcel. Much time and sacrifices were made for their children. Sybil was also a positive thinker who would figure a way to solve what looked like impossible problems.
Sybil taught home economics, elementary school and was a school librarian, involved in education for 40 + years. She had a lifelong dedication to learning and helping others learn. (There is probably still an English and Spanish vocabulary list in her purse.)
Sybil was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She served in a variety of organizations. She and Marcel served two missions to Peru.
Sybil is survived by her 3 children: Darryl (Carolyn) Dunn of Tucson, AZ; Susan (Bruce) Crowther of Colorado Springs, CO; and Marianne (Jerry) Hamm of Fresno, CA. She is survived by 7 grandchildren: Brent (Anjanette) Dunn, Emilee (Tim) Hardt, Richard (Whitney) Dunn, Steven (Suzanne) Hamm, Matthew (Sally Hamm), Richard Hamm, and Elizabeth Hamm. She has 3 great grandchildren.
