Dawn dedicated her life to her career as a Registered Nurse (R.N., BSN) and found joy in helping others. She relished life, enjoyed many hobbies including numerous travels domestic and abroad, snow skiing, house boating, camping, gardening and riding Harley Davidson's.

The family wishes to express immense gratitude to Sharon Daza; lifelong friend, Mike Denslow and Deanna Alskey-Irwin for their unconditional loving care and companionship to Dawn during her extended illness. Her time here was short, yet vivacious and her memory a treasure to those that loved her.
"The angles are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hands of GOD."
