LUGE Irene Olive (Nee Simpson) On the morning of Sept. 5th, 2015, Olive passed away peacefully at her home off West Bay Street. She was born on Dec. 10th, 1920 in the small country town of Dungannon, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland. She had a happy childhood with her two brothers and three sisters. Her family owned the local newspaper, The Tyrone Courier, which was printed once per week. In 1938, she met her future husband, George Howard Kluge, who had moved to Northern Ireland to become a director of Stevenson and Son Limited, manufacturers of "Moygashel" Irish Linen. They fell in love and were married Dec. 26, 1939, and remained happily together for sixty-five years, until George passed away in 2005. In 1952, they emigrated to The Bahamas by boat with three young children, and very soon felt at home. She enjoyed tennis, the beach, reading, sewing, playing the piano, and recently her Sudoku puzzles. Sadly, Olive was predeceased by her sons Howard (1955) and John (2005), and her daughters Rosamund (1984) and Suzanne (2005). Her passing leaves a big gap in the lives of those who knew and loved her. She is sadly missed by her son, Evan. Also grandson, Matthew Herbert and his wife Candi and great grandson Anthony; granddaughter Jennifer Eiland and great granddaughter Madeline and great grandson Beckham; granddaughter Jessica Surovek and her husband Clay and great granddaughter Chelsea and great grandsons Brady and Coley; granddaughter Julia Roach and her husband Josh and great granddaughter Olive and great granddaughter Ivy, who will arrive in October. Olive was interned on 9th September 2015 privately at Lakeview Memorial Gardens with her beloved husband George, and overlooking her son John's grave. Friends who wish may make a donation to The Bahamas Humane Society, P.O. Box N242, or to Amanda Lightbourn to help with her animal rescue work in Olive's name. Special thanks to her wonderful and loving caregivers Bhina, Ian and Christa; to Dr. Ian Kelly and Dr. Patricia Forte for their care and attention; to her friends Astrid Algreen and Steven Mackey for their visits; and to Bethel Brothers Morticians for their kind assistance in our time of need.

William Andrew Dunn was born 19 March 1887 in Co. Tyrone to Andrew and Isabella (née Love) Dunn. William's grandfather was Andrew Dunn "the Miller" of Mossfield. William immigrated to Australia. I never found his passage but he was still in Ireland's 1911 census. He married Helen "Nellie" Herbert in 1916 in Katanning, Western Australia. They took up farming in that area. They had four children; Helen Isabel 1917-1988, Marie Deidre 1919-1947, William Andrew Herbert Dunn 1920-2010 and Wilma Grace 1924-1998. My Mother "Glenys" is the daughter to Marie.
