Dianne Odum Gunn, 65 of Demorest, went to her Heavenly Home on Friday, April 8, 2022.   

Born October 5, 1956, she was the daughter of the late Rev. Howard Odum and Delores Odum.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband of 39 years, Harold Gunn; and brother John Michael Odum.

Mrs. Gunn retired from the Habersham County School System in 2017 with 30 years as a Paraprofessional Educator.  She loved serving the children of Habersham County.  Most of all she loved serving the Lord.  Her love for God, and her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, was evident in her faithfulness and passion for Him.  Dianne and Harold were instrumental in spreading the Gospel and witnessing through their many years of dedication to church ministry.  Dianne led countless Bible Schools, Sunday Schools, various children’s programs, ladies’ programs, prayer groups, and bible studies.  Most recently, she enjoyed her time at Clarkesville United Methodist Church where she attended worship services, Sunday school, The OWLS, Ladies Lunch Bunch; and her volunteer work at the Clarkesville CommUnity Thrift Store and the church office.  She also enjoyed her activities with the Habersham Senior Center, in addition to leading a Widows group and participating in the Habersham Community Bible Study group.  Even with her busy schedule, she always had time for her daily devotions, her twice a day walks, and baking a cake for family and friends for various occasions.

Dianne left a Godly legacy for her family and friends; and it was her hope that this legacy will continue to win souls to Christ, and that she will see us all in Heaven.  Until then, we will miss her, but we will always celebrate her life.

Mrs. Gunn is survived by her brother, Eddie Odum; sister & brother-in-law, Teresa & Lamar Dean, sister & brother-in-law, Deborah & Lee Trotman; and many nieces and nephews.

Services will be held at a later date with interment at Oakey Mountain Baptist Church cemetery.
