Obituary of Dawn Dimorier

Dawn Marie Dimorier, 69, of Preble NY went to be with the Lord on December 19, 2021, after a brief illness. She was born August 21, 1952, in DeRuyter NY, the daughter of the late LeRoy and Dorothy Seamans.

Dawn had lived in Georgia for over 40 years and most recently returned to live with her eldest daughter. She achieved a degree in Criminal Justice with excellent grades but chose to start and raise her very large family instead of establishing a career. While in Georgia she had been employed at various stores and restaurants. Her easy-going, witty & fun personality and ability to “talk” to the public enabled her to work in customer service quite successfully. She found this fulfilling. In her spare time, she enjoyed crocheting and reading every book in sight. She loved helping others, especially her family. She believed in working hard for what you have which is a trait not often seen. She cherished time spent with her children and many grandchildren.

She is survived by her daughters Danielle (Ky) Towers of Preble NY, Naomi (Don) Bernheim of Truxton NY, Wrayannette (Jose) Silva of Carrolton GA, Victoria Biascoechea of Grovetown GA, Susie Roy of Harlem GA, & Deana Thomas of Bonifay Fla; her sons Frank (Ashley) Dimorier Jr. of Grovetown GA & Donald (Sonya H) Dimorier of Harlem GA; her siblings David Seamans, Patricia Rose, Terry Barrows, Stephen Seamans, Renee Rice, MANY grandchildren, GREAT grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Dawn was predeceased by her loving husband, Frank R. Dimorier, daughters Jopina Rice and Sarah Dimorier.

A calling hour will be held Monday 2-3 pm with a Celebration of Life to begin at 3 pm at the Wright-Beard Funeral Home Inc., 9 Lincoln Ave., Cortland NY, 13045. To view the service, visit the Wright-Beard Funeral Home website and access Dawn’s obituary, then select “Live Funeral Stream”.
