Obituary for Dawna Dubuc (Burns)

Dubuc, Dawna Grace (née Burns) (1942 - 2020)

The family announces with sorrow her peaceful death surrounded by family in Crystal Falls, Friday, April 3rd, 2020 at the age of 77 years. Beloved wife and best friend for over 60 years of Frédéric Dubuc. Her spirit is carried on by her 5 children Eric (Jeanne), Murielle Roach (Gerry), Jacques (Priscilla), Jacqueline Bérubé (Michel) and Micheline Vincent (Brian Woito). Sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her 17 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. Sister of Deborah Burns.

She was a beautiful soul who will be sorely missed by all who knew her as Mom, Memère and Matante. She was the heart of the family and opened her home to everyone. Our lives were blessed with the privilege of her love, hugs and smiles. Dawna left a trail of beautiful memories in everyone's hearts through cooking, camping or visiting by the campfire.

She was a member of Les Filles d'Isabelle, Crystal Falls, and volunteered for many events in the community.

Heartfelt thanks to the staff of VON, Bayshore North Bay, and Dr. Jennifer Beaucage for the excellent care provided.
