Dawn Marie Muzzerall 1959 - 2011

Mom, Partner, Sister, Daughter

She inspired others by example, completing her first degree as a single mom.

She returned to University in 2010 where she completed her first year at the University of New Brunswick’s law program, and won a prestigious scholarship.

In addition to participating in may triathlons, to celebrate her 50th birthday in 2009 Dawn cycled across Canada with the Tour De Canada. Victoria BC to Saint John’s Newfoundland, 7500 km in 72 days!

Your smile, your easy laughter, quick qit and your love of a good argument – all these accoutrements of courage were your garments of geniality that kept us from seeing the dragon that roared against you.

We are left with a hole in our heart that can never be filled, until we meet again <3
