Anne E. Dunnock, a retired hospital switchboard operator and homemaker, died of heart failure Tuesday at Northwest Hospital Center. She was 86.

Anne E. Hamilton was born in Dillon, S.C., and raised and educated in Roland, N.C. She moved to Baltimore in the early years of World War II to work at Edgewood Arsenal, where she met her future husband, Samuel J. Dunnock. They were married in 1943 and lived for nearly 60 years in West Baltimore.

She was an operator for more than 25 years at the former Veterans Administration Hospital in Northwood until retiring in the mid-1980s.

Mrs. Dunnock enjoyed attending family reunions and collecting photographs of relatives and friends. She also liked bus trips to Atlantic City, N.J., and collecting glasses, china plates and bells.

She was a member of Elderslie-St. Andrew's United Methodist Church, 5601 Pimlico Road, Baltimore, where services will be held at 10 a.m. today.

She is survived by her husband, a retired Eastern Stainless Steel worker; three sons, Berline Dunnock and Samuel Dunnock, both of Baltimore, and Daniel Dunnock of Atlanta; a daughter, Cassandra Dunnock of Baltimore; 12 grandchildren; and 12 great-grandchildren. Another son, Reginald Dunnock, died in 1981.
