Stacy Marie (Taylor) Dunning, 44, Gas City, passed away at Marion General Hospital at 6:32 a.m. on Sunday, December 24, 2017. She was born in Marion on January 15, 1973, to Michael Collins and Mary (Estepp) Amos. On June 14, 1997, Stacy married David Dunning, and he survives.
In 2000, Stacy received her associate's degree from Marion Community School of Practical Nursing and then began her career as an LPN. She worked at Miller's Merry Manor (formerly Bradner Village) from 1996 to 2013 and then at Emily Flinn for two years. Stacy was a very caring nurse and went above and beyond to care for her patients.
Her family meant the world to her, and she enjoyed riding Harleys, refurbishing furniture, thrift shopping, and swimming. Stacy had a great sense of humor and loved making people laugh. She also had a very quick and sharp wit and was known to be bluntly honest. Stacy will also be remembered for being very selfless and how she would do anything she could to help people.
