Karin Bush Dunn


Around noon on April 26, 2019, Karin Bush Dunn, age 76, passed from the loving arms of her husband into the loving arms of her Lord.  Her earthly battles over, her pain finally relieved.  Blessed be the name of the Lord.  She was born in Pensacola, FL to Stokes and Ruth (Brock) Bush.

Karin retired after 30 years in the Washington County school system teaching fifth grade at Kate Smith Elementary and English at Chipley High School.  She taught not only school lessons, but life lessons as well.  Her love and concern for her students was a primary focus in her life.  She always enjoyed the hugs and compliments from former students.

Karin was a beach person.  It was her place of peace.  She so much looked forward to the yearly stays on Panama City Beach each October, basking in the sun and socializing with her dear beach friends.

She was a member of Delta Kappa Gamma teaching sorority.  She served on the board of Chipola Foundation, including a term as Chairman.  She was a past member of Chipley Woman’s Club, serving as President.  She was a member of First United Methodist Church of Chipley.
