Agnes Ann Eddington Halliday, age 79, of Salem OR, passed away Monday March 16th 2020 after a prolonged battle with cancer. She was born to Elmer D. Eddington and Agnes Bean on May 11, 1940 in her grandfather’s Sugar City, Idaho home.
A loving mother and homemaker, Ann was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends, especially during the holidays. She graduated from BYU with a degree in Home Economics and spent many years teaching in Oregon schools. In 1964 she married Larry Dunlap and together they had four children. She took a break from teaching to raise her family and returned to school later in life to earn a degree in special education. Ann loved her work in this field and earned the distinguished honor of Special Education Teacher of the Year. After retirement Ann re-married to Richard Halliday and together, they served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in the Los Angeles area, working in genealogy. Ann had a love for playing the piano, sewing, quilting, camping and enjoying time with her many grandchildren.
