Dawn attended the line dance sessions at the Neighborhood Center on Broadway several years ago. We always enjoyed her good humor, her smiles, and her accent, although the accent wasn't a full-British one by the time we knew her. She was good at line dancing, too. Condolences to her family. We know you will miss her dearly.
I worked with Dawn from 1969 - 1982. She brought so much happiness to my work experience. Dawn was always cheerful and very encouraging. She was always a joy. My sympathy goes out to all her family and friends. Ann Tucker (845-688-8119)
