Charity Ann Dunham, 84
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Charity Ann Dunham passed away peacefully at the Providence Alaska Medical Center, at the age of 84, on May 11, 2017, surrounded by family.
Charity was born on June 12, 1932, in Freeport, Maine, to Clarence and Gladys (Goldrup) James. She was the youngest of five children.
Charity grew up in Yarmouth and graduated from North Yarmouth Academy in 1950. Charity married Wayman ("Ray") Dunham and they had two daughters, Debra and Mary.
Charity cherished returning to Maine to visit family and friends. She enjoyed Las Vegas, where she loved to play slot machines for hours on end. She was an avid reader; enjoyed watching baseball, in particular the Boston Red Sox; and was a faithful Tudor Bingo Center patron.
Charity was a wonderful mother who worked hard throughout her life, until retiring at the age of 73. Her career included 16 years at Down East Village Restaurant in Yarmouth; and manager of several 7-11 stores in Bradenton, Fla., retiring in 2005.
She moved to Anchorage, Alaska, with her daughter. In late 2015, she moved into the Providence Horizon House apartment which she thoroughly enjoyed.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Ray; brother, Clarence; and three sisters, Arline, Faith and Hope.
She is survived by her daughters, Debra Davis (Tom), and Mary Morton (Nate); six grandchildren, George Libby Jr. (Emily), Michael Libby (Melissa), Susan Colavecchio (John), Nathan Morton III (Jennifer), Andrew Morton (Ricki), and Douglas Morton (Cheryl); 13 loving great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; and her childhood best friend, Carly York, of Yarmouth.
Our family is greatly appreciative to the Providence Horizon House and the Providence Medical Center staff.
Charity's remains will be interred with her husband Ray, at Riverside Cemetery, in Yarmouth, at a later date.
