Grace Marie Nunn

April 6, 1935 - September 24, 2020

Marie Nunn, 85 of Peshastin, passed peacefully at her home on September 24, 2020. She was born Grace Marie Edmonds on April 6, 1935 in Habersham, Tennessee to Charlie and Claudia Edmonds. She grew up in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee where she met Richard “Red” Nunn. They married August 2, 1952 and made their home in coal mining country. They went on to have a family of 6 children. In March of 1966, Red and Marie ventured cross country to Washington State and settled in Peshastin. Marie worked as a fruit sorter in a variety of warehouses in the valley before choosing Blue Bird as the place to spend the majority of her career.

Marie was known for her amazing handmade quilts and blankets, and loved to tend to her garden. Nobody could resist her wonderful southern cooking that she loved to share with anyone who stopped by for a visit. She treasured her time spent with her children and grandchildren and used the opportunity to share her words of wisdom.

Marie is survived by her husband Richard “Red” Nunn of the family home; her dearest sister Emma Green of Tennessee; her sons, James (Sherry) Nunn of Ellensburg, Jerry (Regina) Nunn of Leavenworth, Frank Nunn of  Peshastin, and Lester (Laurie) Nunn of Leavenworth; her daughter, Glennia (John) Brazwell of East Wenatchee, and her 17 grandchildren and numerous great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by a daughter, Linda Moreseman, as well as her parents, three sisters (Mary, Maggie and Helen), two brothers (Charles and Lewis), and a great grandson.

Jones & Jones Betts of Wenatchee is in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, the family asked that donations be made to the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation NWPF.org.
