Dawn Cutler (Rollins)

June 23, 1953 - March 22, 2014


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; 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 1994 Dawn married Bruce. They loved their winter vacations in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico where she made many close friends and soaked up the sun. She 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.

It was very sad to read about Dawn’s passing. I met Dawn a number of years ago when I was out with friend’s. Her fun loving character was a pleasure to be around & it felt like I had known her for years. As it turned out we grew up in the same neighborhood in Red Deer…Dawn will be missed in our community. Heartfelt Condolences to her family at this difficult time.
