Dawn A. Thurber Sanner 08/31/2019

Dawn A. Thurber

Born: September 18, 1975; Springfield, MA, Died: August 31, 2019; Parishville, NY.

It seems to have happened again!  My plans have been ruined.  I had just secured two great jobs and was moving back to Massachusetts.  The thoughtless actions of selfish individual cancelled my husband, Thomas “Tank” Sanner and my next adventure.

Now I sit here at the pearly gates hoping God enjoys my sense of humor.  I know I wasn’t perfect but I hope my score card shows I tried hard to lend a hand to those in need.

Cry if you must but then toss your head back and laugh.  Toast a drink to our memories, enjoy a brownie and smile as I’m okay.

Thomas (Tank ) Sanner would like you to bring your memories of Dawn and join him in a celebration of life ceremony. The celebration will be Saturday, September 21, 1:00 PM at the DeKalb Junction Fire Department, 4323 US Highway 11, DeKalb Junction.  Bring a dish to pass, the family will provide desserts and let’s share our tears and memories.  (Contact Naomi, 315-261-9936 if bringing a dish).  Help us honor her memory with family and friends the way she wanted it to be.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Renewal House, 3 Chapel Street, Canton, NY, 13617.
