Vanessa Dunivan passed away at the age of 74 after a long hospitalization. She was born in Indianapolis, IN in 1949 to Charles and Opal Bowman.

Vanessa made a career in nursing. She was an active member of the Elk Plain Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where she made life-long friends. As her health worsened, she was unable to attend church however, her faith and her friendships remained strong.
