My sincere sympathy to all of you in your loss. When Dawn worked at HyVee, she was always so kind, friendly, and upbeat. She had a knack for remembering the names of many of her customers. I still remember the last time I saw her at HyVee; she told me she was leaving for a job at Sparton. She said she was sharing the news with all of her "regular" customers. May your special memories help you through the difficult days.

I remember spending time with Dawn and all you girls when I was younger. She was so kind to me and I'll never forget that. You are all in my heart. There just ate no words. God bless you all during this incredibly difficult time 💔

I used to baby sit her little sister and Dawn would stop on the way home from school to pick Lee up. Their family lived down the block from us. Our heartfelt prayers are for their family and friends. Dawn was an awesome young woman. Prayers and Peace go with you. God's realm of special angels has a bright addition...
