Billie was a beloved wife and mother. Her love for her family was immeasurable and her children were her life! Billie loved all children, and her grandchildren were the grandest of all to her. She made a special effort to attend every ball game, play, school event, graduation, and wedding. Billie had a quick wit that she cleverly hid but saved for the right moment. She was a woman of faith devoted to God and she never waivered from her conviction. Dementia may have stolen her memories, but she always remembered her family and most importantly she remembered Jesus.

Billie was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph and Delia Godfrey; brother, Joseph D. Godfrey, Jr.; husband, Frank R. Dunn; and second husband, J.W. Speir. Left to cherish her memory include her children, Melanie Dunn Ebarb, and Kevin Dunn and wife Trudy Hays Dunn; grandchildren, Justin Dunn and wife Sarah, Shelley Dunn Goossen and husband Paul, Keaton Dunn and wife Brittany, Rebecca Ebarb, and Rachel Ebarb Walker and husband Andrew; great-grandchildren, Mason, Wyatt, Seth, Avery, Aubrey, Raylon, Walker, Conner, and Levi; stepsons, Ricky Speir (Bridget), Teddy Speir (Binky), Roger Speir, and Tommy Speir (Lori); her beloved sister, Norma Godfrey Simpson; nieces, Mona Reeves, Keitha Marcotte and husband Keith; nephew, Scott Lee and wife Anita.
