Obituary for Joan Mary Gwendolyn Dunsire

Joan Mary Gwendolyn  Dunsire
Nashville - Joan Mary Gwendolyn Dunsire of Franklin, TN passed away peacefully on August 8, 2019 in Nashville, TN at the age of 82.

Joan was born on November 4th, 1936 in Winnipeg, Canada to George McCallum and Grace (Roper) McCallum. On January 28th, 1956 she married Kenneth Dunsire, Jr. She was a graduate of UC Santa Barbara and had a lifelong, rewarding career as a registered nurse specializing in neonatal intensive care.

After many years in California, Joan and Kenneth relocated to Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Joan was a member of the Christ Episcopal Church, where she sang in the choir. She had a passion for dogs, especially Chow Chows, and owned an award-winning kennel, Robinhill Chows with her husband. Joan was an avid dog lover and lifelong supporter of animal rescues.

Joan is survived by her two daughters, Susan Ruth Bruce of Caldwell, ID and Amy Grace Dunsire of Nashville, TN; her seven grandchildren, Robyn, Samantha, Michael, Miles, Rachel, Renae, McKenzie; and her great-grandchildren, Ava, Anthony and Briley. Joan was preceded in death by her children Kenneth Dunsire III, Judith Grace Dunsire, and her husband Kenneth Dunsire, Jr.

The family acknowledges and will be eternally grateful for the precious and loving care that Joan received from the staff at St. Thomas Hospital West. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to the Alzheimer's Association.
