Dell was born in Scottsboro. She attended Alabama College and graduated from Vanderbilt University. She married Benjamin Ellis Dunaway in March, 1948 and was a loving wife and mother. With Ben, she created a welcoming home for family and friends in Atlanta, Ga., Waynesboro, Va. and since 1963 Seaford, Delaware. As an active member of Mount Olivet Church in Seaford, Dell contributed to the life of the church through committee work, participation in a circle and by sharing her musical talent in the choir and bell choir. She also served for many years as a volunteer in the Nanticoke Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.
Dell worked as an English instructor at the Delaware Technical and Community College, where she passed on her love of language to her students. Her competitive spirit was revealed in bridge where it was said she could play “A wicked good” game of cards and in her love of tennis both as a player and spectator. She also was an avid reader throughout her life, but especially enjoyed this past time in her later years.
