Dawn passed away peacefully on Monday, September 23, 2013 at the age of 82 years.

Dawn was born on April 13, 1931 in Waskada, Manitoba, the sixth of nine children. She was raised and educated in the Brandon area. In 1951 she married her lifelong friend, Herb, and they relocated to Edmonton, AB. She spent most of the next forty years working as a nurse for Dr. Perreault in family practice.
