Our “Dawnie” of Bethel Park, PA passed away on April 6, 2017 at the age of 84. Born in Pittsburgh on June 7, 1932, she was the daughter of the late Milo & Amelia Brenlove of Carrick, PA.
Dawn was a beloved wife to the late John “Jack” Dean, a devoted mother to Michael (Sue), Robert and Brian (Peggy) Dean, a loving grandmother to Jessica Kos, Jordan and Zachary Dean, and a great grandmother to Logan and Keeley. She was preceded in death by her sister, Yvonne “Sis” (Kuntz) Walsh.
She was the lead in her senior-class play and played records at school picnics. Dawn adored oldies and doo-wop and in recent years played it 24/7 at home. She loved attending live theatre and musical reviews, plus she enjoyed out-of-town trips with Jack. Most of all, Dawn dedicated her life to her three sons, all of whom miss her dearly.
