The following information was sent to me this morning by Tonya Davis. This was an unexpected and particularly tragic accident. I met Dawn a few times while vising Tonya in Ohio. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
Dawn Maria Dunlap passed away on June 9, 2018 at age 50.
This was due to an auto accident while she was crossing the street with her significant other. Dawn had no children but leaves behind her Partner, her Aunt, her Brother and Parents.
Dawn was physically disabled with a genetic bone disease and confined to a wheelchair. However, this did not prevent her from obtaining an Associates Degree in graphic arts. She was a champion medical marijuana Activist. She participated in many forums on physical disabilities. Additionally she was an adventurous photographer, and created digital works of art and custom jewelry.
She was a woman of strong faith with a strong association to two different churches. Both churches have lifted her up in their congregations for her strong faith.
All of us know she is in the hands of God and we will be reunited with her at a later date. She brought untold joy into the lives of many.
Dawn was very active on social media including Facebook and You Tube. In fact, we are sure some of her funny videos can still be found on You Tube. If you are curious search for “Dawn Dunlap” and “Edna”.
If you are so inclined, please donate to the World Giraffe Foundation in lieu of sending flowers. This was Dawn’s favorite charity.
Dawn is loved and missed by many, leaving a large hole in the lives of family and friends.
