Dawn owned and operated Country Charm flower shop along with her mother, Dorothy, for the past 29 years. She had a beautiful talent and with it was able to touch so many lives through her creations. From weddings, funerals, birthdays, get wells, and other occasions she was able to produce creations to be shared, adored, remembered and loved. Dawn always met you with a smile and whether you wanted it or not she was going to give it to you straight and her honest opinion. Dawn was always up for an adventure and was always good for a laugh. She was just a phone call away for whatever you may have needed and her home was always open. There were many Sunday mornings where Dawn made breakfast for anyone who sat at her table. Dawn was a lover of life, her family, her newest love her grandson Dawson, and she treasured many friendships.
Dawn is survived by her husband Dennis; sons Matthew and Thomas; and grandson Dawson; parents Dorothy and Bill Gant; sisters, Julie (Marv) Svoboda, Bonnie (Jamie) Naquin, and Laura Kelsey; brothers Jim (Tammy) Metcalf and Willard (Dana) Gant III; many nieces, nephews, and a host of friends.
