Dawn Marie Lindsay (nee Kirouac)

God saw you getting tired

and a cure was not to be,

so he put his arms around you,

and whispered “Come to me”.

With tearful eyes we watched you,

and saw you pass away.

Although we loved you dearly,

we could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,

hard working hands at rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.

It is with great sadness that on August 9, 2011 at the St. Boniface General Hospital, in Winnipeg, Dawn Marie Lindsay lost a short battle with cancer at the young and tender age of 38. She fought courageously until her very last breath and waking moment.

Dawn was a beautiful, young, loving mother to Carter and Madison, wife to Dan, daughter to Gayle and sister to Kory and Kent. She will be greatly missed, forever loved, and always in our hearts.

Dawn and her memories will never be forgotten as she joins her father Deny Kirouac on her next journey as one of God’s Angels. Dawn wanted to say a sincere and loving goodbye to all her loving aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and friends who will cherish their memories and moments of her life. Everyone has a special place in heart!

Dawn was a wife and mother who suffered with scleroderma for the last 14 years of her life. She suffered pain daily, whether it was her critical illness or other ailments. Her will to keep strong and provide for her family and loved ones is a true testament to Dawn’s determination and courage to push through and enjoy everything that life has to offer.
