Obituary

Grace Ellen Dunigan passed away peacefully on April 28, 2023 surrounded by family and loved ones.
Grace Ellen Megenhardt was born to Arndt and Pauline Megenhardt. Grace joyously arrived on November 17, 1935 in Coal City, Indiana, where she would grow up. Grace was Valedictorian of Coal City High School’s Class of 1954. Grace soon married Howard L. Dunigan on August 13, 1956. Grace worked as a Civil Servant Secretary at Ft. Benjamin Harrison and subsequently transferred to St. Louis while Howard attended St. Louis University for Dentistry. A few years after Howard earned his dental degree, Grace teamed up with Howard (“Doc”) building their own Dental Practice in Petersburg, Indiana, which became their “forever” home. Together they would serve and befriend 1000’s of patients over the next 60 years. Grace made people smile as Office Manager up front while Howard made smiles better in the back. Grace was a member of the Timeless Classics Car Club, and served as “Assistant Treasurer” for the many years Doc served as “Treasurer”. Grace and Howard had a son Greg and daughter Danette and were blessed with two granddaughters and two grandsons.
Grace is survived by her husband Howard, son Greg (Jamie) Dunigan; daughter Danette (Tom) Robinson, grandsons Hayden and Dietrich Dunigan; granddaughters Brittany (Roger) Robinson; and Kirstin (Sean Gassen) Robinson; sister Dona Duncan of Brownsburg, Indiana; a brother, Bill (Norma) Megenhardt of Arizona; a wonderful chorus of nieces and nephews; and close family friends Michelle Bennett, Phyllis Dillon, and Carol Sue Sutton.

She was preceded in death by her parents, brother John David Megenhardt, sister-in-law Deloris Megenhardt, brother-in-law Darral Duncan, brother-in-law Gerald Dunigan, sister-in-law Margaret Dunigan, and sister-in-law Pauline Dunigan.
