Dawn was a member of New Beginnings Outreach Ministries. Dawn was one of the strongest women her family had ever known,
She fought this horrible disease
with poise and grace. She was a wonderful wife to Billy for over 49 years and the absolute best mother to her children, Megan and Cortney. She was a wonderful friend and an avid Sweeper ambassador.
She loved spending time with her grandchildren, planting flowers and riding the pontoon boat with the family. Dawn enjoyed worshiping at New Beginnings and most of all, enjoyed being surrounded by her friends and family.
The family would like to thank the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for their excellent care.
Private funeral services will be held Wednesday, March 10, 2021, at the Boyer Funeral Home in Waverly with Pastor Barry Pelphrey officiating. Burial will follow in Evergreen Union Cemetery, Denver Road, Waverly, Ohio.www.boyerfuneral.com
