Jennifer Marie Dawson — UPDATED
Jennifer Marie Dawson (“Jenny”) was the most loving mother, sister, friend and grandmother who went above and beyond for the people she cared about — just ask her sons. She sadly left this world to join her family in Heaven at 6:23 a.m. Saturday, April 22, 2023, surrounded by her loved ones.
She was born to Albert Grow and Dorothy McGinnis on June 11, 1959. After she graduated high school, she met her husband, James Dawson (“Mike”), and had two beautiful sons, James Dawson and Mitchell Dawson, and also had a beautiful granddaughter, Haley Dawson. She loved her family with everything in her and would give the world to them if she could.
Jennifer loved spending time in her garden, planting flowers, and putting up decorations that she got from going to auctions. One thing that everyone knows is that she loved making her fairy gardens and dressing up her geese to show her friends on Facebook. She was one of the hardest workers there was; she worked many years in a manufacturing position as a gel coater. She was also an inspector at Gulf Stream and then went to lSC as a material handler. In September 2022, Jennifer returned as an inspector to Gulf Stream, where she ended her career.
Jennifer was a lifetime member of Abate of Indiana Region 1. She loved riding motorcycles with her family; she loved canoeing down the river or being out on her boat with her husband and granddaughter. She cared about her community and enjoyed doing highway cleanups or helping with Treasures for Kids.
She was preceded in death by her mother, father and two brothers.
She is survived by her husband, James Michael Dawson; her sons, James (Tiffany) Dawson, of Pierceton, and Mitchell (Jennifer) Dawson, of Warsaw; and her granddaughter, Haley Dawson; two grandsons; another granddaughter; two great-granddaughters; and a great-grandson. She is further survived by several nieces and nephews, and many more great-nieces and great-nephews.
