Karin L. Dunn

November 4, 1950 - July 27, 2021

Karin L. Dunn, age 71, of Newark, DE, passed away on Tuesday, July 27, 2021.

Born in Wilmington, DE, on November 4, 1950, she was a daughter of the late Walter and Patricia (Whiteside) Niblette. Karin worked as a corporate service representative for CSC in Wilmington.

Karin enjoyed life. She was an avid gardener who loved being outside. Karin especially loved any time spent with her fur-babies, Breezy and Riley. She was also a voracious reader, always having a number of books to read. Karin loved to travel. Above all, her family (including her CSC work family!) was the most important thing to her. Karin will be remembered as a friend and mentor to all that knew her, always there with words of wisdom.

In addition to her parents, Karin was preceded in death by her brother, John W. Niblette.  She is survived by her husband, Barry B. Dunn; daughter, Melissa O’Neal (Kevin); son, Jonathan Dunn (Shannon); sister, Cheryl Harrison (Mark); and grandchildren, Garrett, Jake, Zoe, Lachlan, and Sébastian, who were the lights of her life.

All services will be held privately.

15 Condolences for Karin L. Dunn

  • I was so saddened to hear of Karin’s passing. I worked with her for 27 years. She was tough as nails with a heart of gold. Not only is she a great loss to her family but she is a great loss to her CSC family. So sorry for your loss.

  • To the family I am so sorry for your loss. I am a part of the CSC family and will miss her dearly. I will keep the family in my prayers.

  • Even though it truely saddens me to know I won’t ever get to hug you or tell you I love you in this life I am still beyond grateful for the amazing memories and life lessons u are leaving me with which I wouldn’t trade them for anything cause without hesitation I know without a second thought who always would slip a NANNY kiss on me when I least expected it and how many times we laughed so hard u nearly wet yourself which bye the way made things that much more funny 😂. So as much as I don’t wanna expect the fact that no more memories can be made with u I am so truely blessed to have engraved so many in not only my mind but my heart with you. As bad as I want u back and was not at all prepared for this I understand now that me being this way is selfish at the very least, fore u are no longer in pain, no longer have to worry about anything and I can imagine have already made yourself right at home in the greatest paradise there ever was. So with that said rest easy NANNY and I look forward to the day we meet again 💕🙏🥲😇

  • CSC’s very own “firecracker” will always be in my heart and thoughts. You can’t spend 23 years with someone and not feel the loss. I will miss her, every day. ❤️

  • Rest In Love Karen
    Much Love ❤ & Prayers 🙏 sent from Florida ⚘

  • To Karin’s family- I am so sorry for your loss. I worked at CSC years ago and I will never forget Karin. She was a dynamo and her clients knew that they could always count on her. May God help you through this very difficult time.

  • You were the happiness in my life. I can’t tell u how many times you gave me nanny kiss and then I would try to give you one and you tickled me until I peed myself. I can’t explain how happy you made me feel. I would always ask mom when are we going to Nanny’s house or when is she coming. I remember when we were up at your house and you and mom were sewing and i when upstairs and u asked me to get something for you I said it smells like old people and u hit me upside the head😂. You will always be in my heart that is one place you are never leaving. You probably already drove people crazy.. love u lots nanny🤍🕊

  • I met Karin the day she came to work at CSC. Together with Maureen and myself, we knocked out taking and placing orders by ourselves. As the company grew, we moved to different departments, and we did not see each other as much, but, that did not break the friendship we developed. I refer to Karin as “spunky”. She always gave you the look as “oh, ok” (while wanting to roll her eyes). She always had so much energy and you always knew where you stood with her. I will miss my friend and co-worker. Heaven watch out cause here she comes, enjoy every minute of her. Love, Mary

  • To the family, I am so terribly sorry for your loss. All of my love and prayers are sent to you. I worked with Karin for over 20 years, she was a mentor and role model and true friend. If it wasn’t for Karin, I would have never had my first dog, Mason, I probably wouldn’t have survived those tough days in the office and I surely wouldn’t have laughed as much as I laughed with her. She was so sassy but she loved with all of her heart. She was there for me through some tough times personally and work related. Her passion and love for dogs was one of the things we shared and would talk about so much. I am going to miss her terribly. Rest In Peace, Karin. ♥️

  • Love you very much Aunt Karen. You will be missed dearly. I am glad I got to see you and give you that hug. Love Jason

  • Karin you will be missed. You were awesome to work with. Her passing is a great loss to everyone. Sending prayers to her family. So sorry for your loss.

  • I am so shaken by this news, I just retired from CSC and worked with Karin via phone for the last 12 or so years. I am so sorry for the families loss, I know CSC employees will miss her! 🙏🏻💐😥

  • My Sister, my first best friend, my Heart the sorrow of loosing you will never go away, it leaves an emptiness that hurts so bad. You would give us that look as if to say, no tears, life goes on and I am trying so hard to find the strength to do that. But knowing no more dinner dates, no more laughs, no more of those Sister texts that we would send each other is going to take my life time to know I will never have again!!! The only comfort I have is to know that you are at peace and watching over all of us and telling us to live life to the fullest until we see each other again. I Love You and Miss You so much and I will try to find the strength to go on without you, I know this is what you would want. Fly high with all of the other Angels! Rest In Peace my Dear Sister and be ready to party when we see each other again! Love You

  • Sorry to hear of Karin’s passing. I knew Karin for Elmwood and then also in West Branch. I last saw her a few days before I moved when she stopped to talk while walking her dog. Yes, we both loved our furbabies. My prayers go to your family for your loss. Heaven gained another angel.

  • To the Dunn family – I only just learned of Karin’s passing. She was my company’s representative at CSC and I worked with her via phone and email for many years. She was always the utmost professional and always very knowledgeable. She is greatly missed!
