So sorry to hear of Dawn’s passing. We went to school together and she sat behind me in several classes throughout high school. She was the kindest, sweetest and most genuine person I have ever known. May she rest in peace and prayers for all.

I worked with Dawn on 4 south at the Ohio Valley Medical center. She was a great nurse, friend and team leader. She was always pleasant and smiling. We could hardly believe it when she was diagnosed with ME. Rest in peace my friend. My sympathies to her family, especially Dixie Durig Ellwood. Sharon Marshall, RN from Hampstead NC.

I am so sorry to hear about Dawn. I graduated from nursing school with Dawn. My first encounter with her tho, occurred as I was walking past the talking Christmas tree at Good’s and she said hello to me by name. And she kept that a secret for quite some time. She was a beautiful person and I am so sorry for your loss
