Memorial Saturday for Jan Roasio Dunn

Oct. 17, 2007 – A memorial service will be held Saturday between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. at Tillett Gardens for Jan Roasio Dunn, local artist and teacher who died Nov. 7, 2006 on St. Thomas.
At the time of her death, Dunn was a math teacher at Ivanna Eudora Kean High School where she enjoyed working with her students over the past ten years.
Dunn had a lifelong passion for art and was known for her oil paintings and island scenes in a style reminiscent of 19th and 20th Century American Impressionists. She studied on St. Thomas with Tom St. Vincent and won blue ribbons at several Caribbean Colour shows. She exhibited at both Fort Christian and the Pissaro Gallery on St. Thomas.
Jan Dunn is survived by her sisters, Adrienne and Leah Anne Roasi of New York, N.Y. and many friends.
Friends and family of Dunn invite all to the celebration of her life and art.
