the Human Resource Manager at the Virginia, MN, K-Mart.
Dawn married Steven Michael White in Biwabik, MN, in 1993, celebrating their 29th

the loves of Dawn’s life. She supported and encouraged their development and activities,
including Scouts, basketball, and robotics.
Dawn had many passions. She enjoyed gardening and flowers, cheering on the Minnesota Wild,
cooking and baking, walleye fishing, birding, BWCA trips, and snowmobile and ATV

The family offers thanks to the amazing doctors, nurses, and staff who work with St. Luke’s,
especially the angels on 2 West for the comfort they gave to Dawn.
A private celebration of life will be held when the flowers are in full bloom. In lieu of flowers
and cards, memorials in Dawn’s honor should go to the St. Luke’s Foundation or the American
