Dawn Johnson's Memorial

Our dear friend, Dawn Johnson, left us all too early and took her final bow this past weekend.

Because Dawn has no surviving relatives, some of her friends, including myself, are creating this fund to help cover this closing chapter which includes settling her affairs, as well as subsidizing both funeral expenses and a small memorial that will celebrate her life. 

As you know, her life was full of laughter, adventure, love, compassion and talent. She was an indefatigable supporter of her friends, whom she considered her "family." 

We consider her family as well: mother and sister, cousin and friend.

We want to honor her wishes with a cremation and a celebration that will allow for laughter through tears and an opportunity for all of her "family" to come together...whether through pictures, anecdotes, testimonials, warm embraces, and rememberance.

Thank you immeaurably for your gifts. 

We will continue to post updates to here on the upcoming services and memorials.
