I was shocked to learn of Dawn's passing. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends. I was Dawn's insurance agent for many, many years and she was always so kind and pleasant to deal with. We became friends and I always enjoyed talking to her. I will miss her so much. Dawn, rest in peace.

Rest in Peace Dawn!! Gone to soon!!!

We only got to meet Dawn once when she came to visit us with Debbie in Nashville, but her sweet, considerate nature won us over immediately. Most importantly, her amazing friendship with Debbie and TerryLynn made her like family. It's evident how loved and cherished she was. Rest in peace.

Dawn's passing has been a shock indeed. She was the most caring and compassionate person I knew. I will always cherish the memories we made during our years growing up in Bonneauville, PA. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family and friends during their time of grief. You will be missed my friend!
