Volney Dunavan

Volney DunavanThe community of North Fork is saddened to learn of the passing of Volney Dunavan who lost her battle with cancer on Monday afternoon, Sept 28.

Volney’s daughter Dyhana was with her and says her passing was peaceful.

“Mama has passed and her journey is over,” Dyhana posted. “She’s reached her destination, she’s free and finally at peace, and no longer in pain. We will all miss her so much. Thank you for all the support and love, she was such a special lady to all of us and she will be so missed.”

There have been many questions about when the memorial will be held, and Dyhana says it will be at least three weeks. She also says there will likely be one held in San Pedro and one in the mountain area so that all who want to celebrate Volney’s life will be able to do so without making a long trip.

“I know it’s what mom would have wanted,” says Dyhana.

Volney would have turned 75 on November 30. She was born in Long Beach, Calif., and raised in San Pedro, moving to the mountain area in 1999. She was very active in community organizations, lending her help and her giving spirit to the North Fork Fire Department Auxiliary, the Community Development Council, Squirrel Cage Theatre Co., and many more.

We will post a full story of her life in the next few days, and will announce when services have been set.
