Emily Faith Gills-Dunn
January 27, 2016-February 3, 2016
Emily Faith Gills-Dunn, of Claymont, DE passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 3, 2016 at Christiana Hospital.
Born in Newark, Delaware on January 27, 2016, Emily was the daughter of Brad Dunn and Angela Gills.
Emily was born with blue eyes and blonde hair. She weighed 15.5 ounces and was 11 inches long. She had her mommy’s nose and toes, and she had her daddy’s ears. Emily opened her eyes when mommy and daddy spoke to her. When mommy sang to her, she kept her eyes closed but lifted her little eyebrows. She loved to move her arms and legs, and the nurses said she was a feisty little one. We especially enjoyed “skin-to-skin” cuddle time and we bonded the most when we were closest to each other. Emily will be missed dearly by all who loved her.
Emily is preceded in death by her step-grandfather, Jack Connolly. In addition to her parents, Emily is survived by grandparents, Dalton and Barbara Gills, Bobby Dunn and Brenda Connolly; great grandparents, Henry E. Barlow, Mary Lou Gills, Irene Battis, John Sparks, Jim and Barbara Cassello; and
many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday afternoon at 2:00 pm, February 13, 2016, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 N. DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where a visitation will be held from 1:00 pm-2:00 pm. Interment will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the March of Dimes, Delaware State Chapter, 236-C N. James Street, Newport, DE 19804.
