Loving Mother and Grandmother -

Dawn Elaine (Rowe) McMillin, age 84, of Mechanicsburg, passed away peacefully to live with the Lord on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, after a long illness.  Dawn was born on Saturday, July 9, 1932 in Johnson City, NY to the late William Rowe and Mildred Adelia (Fredendall) Rowe.  Dawn was the widow of Bruce McMillin, whom she married in 1951, and who died on February 2, 2011.  In addition to her parents and husband, Dawn is preceded in death by her son, Steven McMillin.
