Dawn A. Manwarren, 73, of Oxford, while surrounded by her loving family, went to be with the Lord on April 17, 2018. Dawn was born on April 6, 1945 daughter of the late John McAdams and Georgia and Frank Decker. Dawn was predeceased by her mother and her step father Frank Decker (Pop). She was also predeceased by her daughter Sebrena Effner (Smith), her brother Henry (Danny) McAdams, and her sister-in-law Louise McAdams.
Dawn is survived by her loving husband Clarence Manwarren (Oxford, NY), her daughters Tammy and Dennis Williams (Oxford, NY), and Vicky Manwarren (Oxford, NY). She is also survived by her son- in -law Leroy Effner (Delhi, NY), her grandchildren Dennis and Danielle Williams (McDonough, NY), Peggy and Corey Smith ( Greene, NY), Danielle Williams (Oxford, NY), David Smith (Utica, NY), William Effner (Delhi, NY), Dustin Manwarren (Oxford, NY), Tiffany Manwarren (Oxford, NY), her nephew Brian and Kelly McAdams and family (Burlington Flats, NY), and her great grandchildren Dennis Jr, Emily, Colten, Caden, Cooper, Caleb, Dakota (Lovey), Carter, and Brayden.
Dawn had a strong faith in God, a heart of gold and was always ready to help anyone in need. She loved doing crafts and going to garage sales, but most of all she loved being with her grandchildren and attending family get togethers. She was quite the jokester, even during her last days her doctor had asked her how she was feeling, and she replied, "With my fingers." She will be missed dearly by all those who knew and loved her.
Dawn's family would like to thank all the nurses, doctors, and staff on the 3rd floor at Chenango Memorial Hospital, Norwich, NY for all their kindness and compassion in caring for their mom. It meant so much to them all.
In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in Dawn's name can be out to Chenango County Hospiceâ¦
