Dawn Foote

Dawn Foote Dawn Foote On Sunday, November 13, a beautiful, kind, soul ended her courageous battle with cancer. In Dawn's final peaceful moments, she was lifted from the tender arms of her husband, children and sisters to the welcoming embrace of her loving Savior. Dawn was born May 31, 1953 in Grayling; the daughter of Dorthen "Bud" and Donna Mae (Zettle) Batchelder. A volunteer at local food pantries and a "community mom" who opened her home and heart to anyone, Dawn was a homemaker who enjoyed knitting, crocheting, baking, board games, reading, and storytelling. An avid rock collector, Dawn spent many enjoyable hours searching for the elusive Lake Superior Agate. Most of all, she loved her grandchildren. On December 13, 1972, Dawn married the love of her life: Donald E. Foote, who survives. She is also survived by children: Deanna (Michael) Reed, Debra (Shawn) Drovdahl, Danielle (Eric) Speers, Dale Foote, and Devin Foote, sisters: Donna Jean (Marvin) Henderson and Sue Csapo, a brother in law: Marvin (Ruth) Foote, sisters in law: Sussie (Wilbur) Loew and Ruby Hermenitt, ten grandchildren, one great grandchild and several nieces and nephews. Dawn also leaves behind so many people who considered her a second mom. Her door was always open for the wandering soul in need of acceptance. Dawn was preceded in death by her parents and four brothers. Dawn's family received friends Thursday, November 17, 2016, 10:00 - 11:00 AM at Holy Family Catholic Church, Caledonia; where Mass of the Resurrection was celebrated at 11:00 AM. A memorial mass was celebrated November 19, 2016 at 1:00 PM at St Nicholas Church in Larks Lake, Michigan. Burial will take place at a later date in St. Nicholas Cemetery. Memorial contributions to Local Food Pantries will be appreciated. Please visit www.beelergoresfuneral.com to sign the guest book, share a memory or to leave a condolence message for Dawn's family.
