Dawn E. Belding-Shull  August 13, 1960 - January 19, 2017

We invite family and friends to sign the guestbook and leave a fond memory you have.

So sorry for your loss. Dawn was my best friend growing up in Royal Oak although we lost touch after high school, and I heard through the high school grapevine of her passing. The funniest kindest smartest and most athletic little girl in the neighborhood! We had such amazing childhood memories, what a blessing to grow up a few doors from the wonderful Belding family. I can see from these entries she was the same lovely person as an adult. Don't hesitate to look up old friends is all I can say!

Very sorry to hear of Dawn's passing. She was good friend who helped me at Michigan Tech. I recall my father also thought highly of Dawn professionally and as a person who brings joy to everyone she encounters. Her joy and kindness will surely be missed.

I met Dawn in 1993 when I was just a temp at Johnson Controls. We would be outside on a break and talk. I got to know her better when I started working with Tom. She was always a great friend to all. She truly cared about her friends. When our dear friend Kay battled breast cancer, Dawn was right there to make sure she got to appointments and had what she needed. I really admired her. My heart breaks for Tom and family, as well as for all who called Dawn their friend. Heaven gained another Angel. I'm sure Dawn and Kay are having a couple adult beverages and playing a few rounds of golf. Perfect games no doubt!
Rest in peace my dear friend.

Dawn was one very special lady. She was always doing nice things for others. I got to know Dawn at Johnson Controls and she was a wonderful person to work with. She went out of her way to treat her co-workers with kindness. I have many fond memories of Dawn. My deepest sympathy to Tom and the family.

To all of Dawn's family and the Belding Girls,
I am so sorry to read this news this morning. Little Dawn was always a delight at the cottage and in Royal Oak. I will remember Dorothy's little impish sis fondly.

The staff and facilities at Gramer were absolutely the best. Their heartfelt compassion & dedication were obvious. We couldn’t have asked for better care than we received. Brooke even had her wedding the day after Dad’s funeral and the service still went perfectly. We highly recommend Gramer.
