Dawn Elizabeth Cutler (nee Rollins)

Dawn passed away March 22, 2014 following a brief but courageous battle with cancer.

Dawn was born June 23, 1953 in Red Deer, Alberta to Everett and Marion Rollins.

Predeceased by her father, Everett, Dawn is survived by her mother, Marion; husband Bruce; son Brad, daughter-in-law Leslie and granddaughter Hailey; and her brother Garry (Jocelyn). As well, she is survived by her father & mother-in-law, Earl & Alice Cutler; Pat (Ken) Armstrong; Bud Cutler; Ron (Shirley) Cutler and numerous nieces and nephews.

Dawn & Brad moved to Nelson in 1985 and she immediately embraced her community by volunteering with several groups including Navy League, Nelson Legion #51 and Rotary International where she served as the Treasurer. She was a long time employee of the City of Nelson and many people will know her from her years working the Hydro billing department.

In October 1994 Dawn married Bruce. They loved their winter vacations in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where she made many close friends and soaked up the sun. Dawn will be missed by those near and far.

A special Thanks goes out to the nursing staff at Kootenay Lake hospital as well doctors Moulson, Tuvel and Malpass.
