In Loving Memory ~
Dawna was born and raised in Port Arthur, now Thunder Bay.
Following high school she earned a diploma in Laboratory Technology. Over the years she worked in Labs in Fort William, Medicine Hat, Edmonton and Calgary. She also earned a specialist diploma in laboratory histology.
Dawna is survived by husband Matt of Nanaimo, daughter Wendy of Brisbane, Australia, son Doug of Melbourne, Australia, sister Margaret Wheeler of Port Coquitlam B.C., sister-in-law Joan of Thunder Bay and a number of nieces and nephews throughout western and eastern Canada.
Dawna was known for her easy smile, pleasant personality and genuine love of people. She was a talented cook who loved gatherings of friends and an accomplished needle worker with many examples of her work decorating her homes.
She could do anything she put her mind to and had a habit of getting things done, always in a pleasant manner.
Her memory will live on and
she will be missed forever.
