Heather Joleen Dunagan, age 39, of Lamar, passed away Saturday morning, April 16, 2016 at Freeman West Hospital in Joplin.       Heather was born September 3, 1976 at Humansville, Missouri to Doyle and Suzi (Strong) Dunagan.  She graduated from Lamar High School in 1994 and went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Missouri Southern in 2012.  Heather had worked for Watco in Pittsburg, Kansas and Tamko in Lamar.  Most recently, she was a Mental Health Specialist at Pathways in Nevada, Missouri. Heather was an animal-lover who pampered her dogs and cats.  She enjoyed travelling and well-planned cruises topped her list of favorite vacations.  Naturally compassionate and generous with her time, Heather’s most gratifying roles were those of caregiver for her mom, enthusiastic farmhand for her dad, and best friend to her fiancée, Mike Trost.          Preceding Heather in death were her grandparents, Dean & Mary Strong and Joyce Dunagan McEldowney; four uncles, Larry Strong, Vaughn, Lee, and Robert Dunagan; and several cousins.       Survivors include parents, Doyle and Suzi Dunagan, fiancée Mike Trost, all of Lamar; her brother, Doyle Dunagan, Jr. and wife, Jennie of Stockton, Missouri; nephews, Ryder & Trace Dunagan; her step-grandmother, Mary Strong, Lamar; many cousins and a large extended family.       The family will receive friends from 6:00 until 7:00 p.m. Monday, April 18th at Daniel Funeral Home.  Private burial will be at a later date.       Memorial contributions are suggested to the Dunagan family in care of Doyle Dunagan or the funeral home.
