Dawn Melinda O'Leary


Dawn Melinda O'Leary

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Dawn Melinda O’Leary of Rusagonis, N.B. at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Hospital on Wednesday, March 18th, 2020.

Dawn was born July 25, 1978, the loving daughter of Jerry and Dianne (McCracken) O’Leary, and grew up in Fredericton Junction, N.B.  She leaves behind her sister Chrissy and her brother David and sister-in-law Paula and her niece Payton and nephew Chase, whom she loved dearly.

She also leaves behind her aunts and uncles – Vance McCracken of Fredericton Junction, Lois (O’Leary) Harris of Fredericton Junction, Blaine O’Leary (Margaret) of Fredericton Junction, Vaughan O’Leary of Darmstadt, Germany, Melissa (Kelly) Wilson of Banff, Alberta, Ruth O’Leary of Fredericton Junction and her loved cats Raja and Sephera.

She was predeceased by her grandparents, Edward and Carrie (Mersereau) O’Leary and Charles and Della (Forrest) McCracken of Fredericton Junction.

Dawn graduated from Oromocto High School and worked at O’Leary Pontiac Buick GMC and Fredericton Hyundai for a number of years.  She was an incredible baker and loved to bless people with their favorite "sweet treats".  She was creative and loved to paint, do cross stitch and crafts.  She was also a gifted writer and encouraged many with her writings.  Dawn also had a strong faith and loved to share it.

The family would like to thank Dr. Michael Hayter and all the nurses and staff on 3SW (DECH) for the wonderful care they gave her.

There will be a "Celebration of Life" at a later date.  Online condolences and sharing memories can be expressed through
