Dawn "Dawnie" Rowan
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that our family shares the sad news of the unexpected passing of Dawn on Tuesday, January 14, 2020.
Dawnie was the Beloved Daughter of Gary and Maryann. Dearest Sister to Lorri (Danny), and Sean. Proud Aunt and Loving Mother to Jason. Devoted fur-baby Mom to Shorty. Cherished Granddaughter of the late Florence Rowan, and the late Stanley Chucko. Precious Niece of the late Diane (the late Ronald) Snal, the late Robert Chucko and the late Ronald Chucko. Fond cousin of Ronnie, Joey (Yvette), Ricky (Kathy), Gary (Patty), Cindy (Steve) and many more cousins. Loving Godmother to Desirae. Dawn had countless friends, too many to mention that will miss her dearly.
Family and friends of Dawn will gather together for a service of remembrance and to celebrate her life at Sax-Tiedemann Funeral Home, 9568 Belmont Ave., Franklin Park on Monday, January 20, 2020 from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm. A service will begin at 7:00 pm to honor Dawn's life.
If you knew Dawn, you knew she loved to celebrate. She always made our birthdays, and holidays special, and let's not forget her infamous Christmas parties that she alone out of the goodness of her heart would endure all the costs just to see everyone's smiling faces. Come join our family on Monday to CELEBRATE Dawn and share your favorite memory of our beautiful Dawnie.
Dawn was an avid lover of all kinds of animals. Everything from dogs, to cats, to pet rats, birds and guinea pigs...she tried to rescue them all.
