Dawn was such a kind and loving woman. My favorite memories of her will always revolve around AWANA. She was so good with all of the girls and whenever they were sad or had a problem she was always there to listen and give them a hug. My daughters and I will deeply miss her.

I helped Dawn with Awana back in the day. She was such a giving person. I enjoyed being around her. She will be missed. God got a really good angel.

Dawn was such a big part of my childhood. She taught me so much about God during my time at AWANA. I can hear her laughing now and making fun of my father.
