Dawn will be lovingly remembered by her children, Barbara Vautour-McGraw (Maurice), Tina Cook (Luke), Michael Wayne Vautour (Kim) and Tracy Vautour-Montyr (Roland); sisters, Joan Richard (Guy) and Linda Steele (the late Wayne); grandchildren, Anthony, Natasha, Chyanne, Tiffany, Jessica, Jillise, Samuel and Mackenzie; many great-grandchildren, cousins, nieces and nephews including special niece, Heather and special nephew, Guy.
In addition to her parents, Dawn was predeceased by her infant grandson, Cory; brothers, Billy, Jimmy and Donald; sisters, Betty, Nancy and Ruth.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Brenan’s Funeral Home, 111 Paradise Row, Saint John (634-7424). Due to the current health restrictions a funeral service will be held at a later date.
