Dawn’s greatest joy was loving and caring for her family. Her title MaMaw was her favorite one, she was always wanting to be with her grandchildren. Dawn was a member of City Hope Church, and really adored her Church Family there too. Dawn was fond of getting out of the house and taking car rides. She loved all animals and would occasionally take in a stray if they needed her loving care. She will forever be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who treasured the time spent with her family.
