Dawn Marie (McClure) Leonhard, 64, Tacoma, Wash., passed away on Tuesday May 14, 2013, in Yuma, Ariz., while visiting with her mother.

Known for her love of animals, especially her Maltese dogs, Dawn owned and cared for many during her all too short life. She was a member of the Evergreen Maltese club. The Tacoma Zoo also benefited from this love as she was a mentor for two of their walruses - E.T. and Rosie.
Dawn took pride in looking her best all the time, which lead to her selling Avon for many years and will be long remembered by her many loyal clients.
Dawn was preceded in death by her father, Winfred McClure; sister-in-law, Marjean (Leonhard) Slakes; and in-laws, Hugo and Mary Ann Leonhard.
According to Dawn's wishes cremation has taken place and there was no service.
