Mary Dunahay passed away following a battle with pneumonia. She is survived by her spouse, Patrick Dunahay; her daughter, Jordan (Brandon) McCarty and her son, Cade Dunahay; grandchildren, Madeline McCarty and MacKenzie McCarty; siblings, Beth (Jim) Jackman, Holly (Frank) Hutto, Reed Harmon and Jill Harmon.
Mary was born in Hobbs, N.M., and moved to Littleton when she was four. She graduated from Arapahoe High School in 1975 and attended Mesa State College in Grand Junction. She married Pat in 1978 and became a mother not long after.
As her children grew up, she began to pursue her lifelong love affair with horses when Pat gave her a horse named Harley. In 2008, she decided to open her own business. She purchased a small barn with a beautiful piece of property in the foothills of Littleton. Through an extensive renovation and a lot of hard work and dedication, Mary turned Savoy Stables into a top show barn. In the 10 years of owning Savoy, Mary became a beloved and highly respected part of the horse community. Her legacy will live on in the hearts of all the people and animals that she has touched.
