Mrs. Frances Taylor Brook Gunn, age 90, of Union Point, GA, died Thursday, August 13, 2009 at Saint Joseph''s at East Georgia Hospital in Greensboro. She was born December 7, 1918 in Clarke County to the late Doc Benjamin Taylor and Frances Ann Evelyn McElroy Taylor. Mrs. Gunn received her AB degree in Elementary Education from Tift College in Forsyth. She earned a Masters of Education at the University of Georgia as a reading specialist. After 47 years of service she retired from Union Point Elementary School as a Remedial Reading Teacher.

She later taught for 10 years at Nathanael Greene Academy. Mrs. Gunn has influenced students in Greene County, Cobb County, Clarke County and in the state of Alaska.

Mrs. Gunn''s approach to teaching reading was varied and designed to engage a child''s interest. She used art and creative work to teach reading. Children enjoyed her class and looked forward to the time they spent in her room. Mrs. Gunn''s hope for education was that schools would provide environments for the students that would help the students to become well adjusted, happy and productive human beings.
