BRADFORD – Eleanor M. (Day) Dunfee, 94, wife of the late Aubrey E. Dunfee went home to be with her Lord Monday, Feb. 22, 2010, at a Bangor nursing home after a long illness. She was born Oct. 24, 1915, in Garland, the daughter of Fredrick and Muriel (Packard) Day. Eleanor graduated from Garland High School, Class of 1931, and was a very faithful member of Charleston Pentecostal Church since she was 12 years old. She imparted a strong faith into the generations that followed her, which are all active in her faith and it is amazing how many are in full-time ministry to the Lord. Eleanor is survived by three sons, Dalton and his wife, Lois, of Corinth, Malcolm and his wife, Sonya, of Corinth, and Keith Dunfee Sr. and his wife, Cynthia, of Bradford. She was known as a great care taker to many, but especially to a nephew, Ronald Scott, whom she raised from the age of nine as her own son; and two nieces, Mary (Scott) Nutter and Donna (Scott) White, all of whom she raised after the death of her sister. Eleanor also raised Shirley Stork for the first six years of her life. In addition, she is survived by nine grandchildren that are dearly loved, 25 great-grandchildren, one great-great-granddaughter, many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a son, Clayton; a grandson, Keith Dunfee Jr.; a sister, Evelyn Scott; and two brothers, Everett and Stanley Day. The family wishes to give very special thanks to the staff at Stillwater Health Care for their excellent care and loving devotion. Friends may call 6-8 p.m. Wednesday at Charleston Pentecostal Church, where funeral services will be held 2 p.m. Thursday with the Rev. Mark Dunfee and the Rev. Matthew Ward officiating. The family invites relatives and friends to join them after the service for a time of conversation and refreshments at the Pentecostal church fellowship hall. Spring burial will be at Williams Cemetery, Bradford. Please visit www.ThompsonFuneralHomes.org.
