Born July 6, 1959, in Lodi to the late John M. and Janet E. (née Greene) Dawson, Brenda was a resident of Doylestown since 1965. She worked for many years with her mother, who was owner of Dawson Janitorial. Known for her quick wit, infectious laugh and telling you like it is, she had a passion for horses and was a lover of many other animals.

She was preceded in death by her half-brothers, Ronald and Robert Dawson.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 32 years, Dave; sister, Cheryl Dawson; stepsister, Linda Gray; stepbrother, Richard (Julie) Dawson; and numerous brothers- and sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, other family and friends.

Due to the current health crisis, the family decided to hold calling hours to honor Brenda’s passing at a later date. They would ask at this time that cards and acknowledgements be sent to the family in care of the funeral home, 132 N. Portage St., Doylestown, OH, 44230 or condolences be submitted to the guest registry at
