Mrs. Bernice Dunson

Mrs. Bernice Dunson was born May 1, 1942 to the late Maggie Henderson in Franklin, Georgia.

She attended Mary Johnson Elementary School and Mary Johnson High School before moving to LaGrange and graduating from East Depot High School.

At an early age she professed her faith in Jesus Christ and joined Mount Zion Baptist Church. She later united with Ebenezer Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor C.F. Reed, to worship with her husband.

She was united in Holy Matrimony to Deacon Freddie Lee Dunson in December of 1960.  This union was blessed with five children, and they were blessed with two additional children that they reared as their own from birth.  This union lasted for over 54 years, until Deacon Dunson’s death on May 19, 2015.

As a result of her generous spirit and pleasant personality, “MawMaw” was loved by many.  Her Christian life was as beautiful as the flowers that she loved so well, and her influence will forever remain in the lives of all who knew her.
