Dawn was born in Jamaica, West Indies to Monica Lewis and Nevelle Henry on August 28th, 1957. Dawn and her family migrated to the United States in 1973. Dawn worked as a patient coordinator until her retirement. Dawn loved to travel. She often revisited Jamaica. She traveled to the United Kingdom, Spain, and parts of Africa. Dawn was a lover of music in all forms.
Dawn is survived by her two sons Conway and Troy; aunts, Pearl and Olive; siblings Delroy, Christopher Coke, Ainsworth, Dulcian, Noelene, and Garfield; her nieces and nephews, Allester, Tyrone, Antonette, Torian, Deidre, Nicole, Patrice, Janine, and Ashley; and dear friends Java Humphreys, Marvetta Nangle, Althea Beckford, Roslynd Lee, Donna Robertson, Kellie Davison, and Marica Rattigan.
Dawn was the life of the party and a stranger to no one. Her smile was infectious and could brighten anyone’s day. She might be gone but, she certainly is not forgotten. Her spirit is felt by everyone who knew her. Her family and friends miss her dearly.
