Obituary of Dawn Evelyn Luck
It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of the passing of my beautiful mother, Dawn Evelyn Wilcox Luck. She was born on October 30th, 1960 and passed away on Sunday, January 15th, 2023. She was 62 years old when she went home to be with the Lord. Dawn was a beloved mother, sister, and elementary school teacher. She was also an active member of every church she attended, the most recent being Calvary Chapel in Tucson, Arizona. She attended Kentucky Christian College for her BA degree in elementary education, minoring in music, and the University of Phoenix for her Master’s degree in elementary education. Dawn was born in Hammond, Indiana and grew up in Griffith, Indiana with her three siblings- Woody, David, and Eileen. She moved to California after graduating from KCC and lived there for 18 years before moving to Tucson, Arizona with her former spouse, Ken, and their daughter. She sang on the praise team at Cornerstone Christian Church in Northridge, California and played on the church softball team. She was also on the praise team for many years at Pantano Christian Church in Tucson, Arizona. Her kindness, generosity, inspiring faith and love for the Lord touched the lives of many- those in her classroom, those in her church, those in her family, and those in the community. She was preceded in death by her father, Eugene Wilcox, and her mother, Dolores E Smessaert. She leaves behind her only daughter, April. Dawn endured a five-year long battle with endometrial cancer at the end of her life, with the last two and half years being especially difficult after the cancer returned and metastasized. Her battle was incredibly awe-inspiring as she went through her treatments with a profound level of strength, giving it to God and placing her trust in the Lord the entire time. She was still teaching after undergoing 6 rounds of chemotherapy treatments. She had one major tumor in her right lung that began to block her bronchial airway, and this ultimately resulted in her hospitalization, embolization of the lung, and intubation before she went home to be with the Lord in Tucson, Arizona- surrounded by family. So many that loved Dawn and cared for her and her family have already reached out and asked how to help. We are currently asking for donations in honor of Dawn, to go toward her celebration of life. Donations will be used to support the family by allowing us to lay her to rest and give her the celebration of life she deserves- one that will pay tribute to what a wonderful, beautiful soul she was and the exemplary life she lead while she was here with us on Earth. Dawn was never one to ask for help, and would tell me she was able to get by on what she had. However due to her long battle with cancer, being unable to work toward the end of her life, and continuous medical bills for procedures, treatments and hospitalizations, she did not have funds that could go toward the celebration of her life. All donations will be used toward mortuary services, memorial service, place of burial, and headstone. https://www.gofundme.com/f/remembering-dawn-wilcox-luck?member=24522873&sharetype=teams&utm_campaign=p_na+share-sheet&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=customer Please consider donating if you can and any amount will truly help. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity during this difficult time.
