Thinking so much for Dawn’s family and many friends new and old . New Dawn through out our Holt school days reconnected at Jackson’s games with my great nephew had such great fun with her Becky and family. So hard to believe she passed hoping she did not suffer. With all my love and all the Akright family.

I did send obituary to classmates that are on my Facebook page so many said so many nice things about Dawn

I’m so sorry to hear this! This whole family has been special to me for many years. Dawn was always smiling in church. And she always had words of kindness and praise whenever I spoke with her. A lovely soul gone too soon. My condolences to the family and friends. Wish I could be there.

I worked with Dawn in the 70’s at the Laboratory of Clinical Medicine (LCM). She was only five years older than me but every day, in every way she treated me like family. Dawn was hard working and trustworthy. I sill have the brass coat rack that I purchased from her and Gary.
Fast forward. It’s the early 90’s, I have a family and we live in Holt. I used to help our children with a small paper route in the tree streets off Holt Rd. I hadn’t seen Dawn since the late 70’s but one beautiful afternoon there she is in the yard at Sycamore and Walnut. We caught up quickly and I remember telling her that she hadn’t changed a bit, physically, personally, or spiritually. RIP my friend.

I’m so sad and sorry. You know I’ve loved Dawn, her children, and the Flynn family forever. Growing up on Walnut St, spending so much time at the Flynn home, walking to Hitchens, Dawn and my dad always teasing and kidding with one another. So many good, loving memories that continued into our adult lives. One memory that quickly comes to mind is Dawn, Mary Pierce and I spending the night in Pierce’s garage. We must have been 14/15 and went to DeRosa’s and bought a pack of Kools . It was a time when Mary could easily buy a pack ‘for her parents’. None of us smoked! But we smoked that entire pack that night.
In recent years I used to always see her when the Homecoming parade would pass Walnut/Sycamore St and she’d be at the family home. We would talk about the kids and grandkids and of course our parents too. Last time I saw her was the year her home was being sold. Seemed so wrong for them not to be there. It still does.

I worked with Dawn for 15 years. She was always there when I needed her. She was like a bonus mom to me and a great friend. Dawn impacted many lives and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends in this difficult time.

I’m so sorry about Dawn. I was over to the family home growing up. I was thinking family might remember me by Teresa May Ross so that was my first message. I have thought of Dawn n Marsha whom I was closest to so many times. Dawn was in my wedding in 1972. You all are in my thoughts n my heart. Hold on tight to each other and stay safe.❤️

I love all you guys and I’m so sorry. I have so many great memories of her, she was always so kind to me and we had many great talks. My home away from home when I was younger, when I needed to get away from my hostile home. I’m glad I was able to see her and talk to her a few times the last couple years. She will be missed
