Dawn was an avid golfer with a hole-in-one to her credit.  She and Tom spent many hours on the golf course often accompanied by their children or friends. 

Through her love of gardening, she developed a green thumb.  She took many photos and enjoyed scrapbooking them. She recently developed an interest in her ancestry and had begun to build her family tree.  Most of all Dawn enjoyed spending time with her family and friends.

Dawn was a wonderful wife, mother, sister and friend.  She will be missed by many. Those who knew her will continue to hear her infectious laugh and hold memories of her close to their hearts.
