I am so sorry to all of Dawn’s friends and families. She was a super lady, lots of fun and life. She is gone much too soon, but I am the better for having known her.

My deepest condolences.

Dawn was a fantastic English teacher and we shared many laughs together:-) I was very sad to hear of her passing, my thoughts are with her family.

From: Barb McFarlane (Gagnon)
Relation: old, cherished friend

Dawn and I went to highschool and university together. We were close friends, I was honoured to be in her wedding party. We also worked together at the Film Factory and enjoyed photography and school band. She was a wonderful person. She always had a smile on her face. She could not have been a better friend to me. I am sorry that our paths diverged and we lost touch. I will cherish the memories.
I am so sorry to hear of her passing. My condolences go to her family and friends.
