    Elisa, Tom, and Randy,
    I’m so sad to hear of Dawn’s passing. I have many wonderful memories of the times we shared through the years. Bluebirds, CampFire Girls, crafting, bake sales, outings with Marge and my mom, grade school, some wild times in high school, and so many more. I hope I get a chance to give you a hug on Saturday. My thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time.

  • Cathy & Fred Dalzell and families

    We hope your loving and fun memories of Dawn will give you strength and comfort.
    Our love and best thoughts continue your way.

  • So very sorry to hear of Dawn’s passing…my neighbor across the street in elementary school. So wonderful to hear of her special life, love and family. Lisa “Baird” Bishop

  • Stacey (Hain & Geoff's Mom)

    I adored her. So very many people did. She was beautiful inside and out. Dawn was loving and caring and real. She will be missed and she will be remembered. Peace and blessings to the entire family, to you Randy and also to her sons. Grief is a mostly solo, very long road. May her love and light lift you up on the hard days and may all your wonderful, happy memories warm your heart and carry you all the rest of your days. God speed her sweet, beautiful soul into the arms of the angels where her spirit surely lives on and shines so very bright.
