Dawn Marie Becker

December 21, 1987 - August 27, 2018

Dawn Marie Becker, 30, of Danville, was born Dec. 21, 1987, passed into Heaven on Monday, Aug. 27, 2018, after losing a courageous battle with cancer.

Dawn attended St. Joseph Catholic School, Danville Area High School, and Bloomsburg University.

Dawn will be remembered by everyone that she met as a beacon of light that shone until the end. Her constant curious and creative mind loved animals, reading, movies and everything technological, especially dabbling with graphic arts.
She was a member of the Elks and was on the Board of Head Start.

Dawn would tell you that no matter what she did, her greatest accomplishment in her life was her boys, Jaxon Paul, 6, and Atticus James, 4, through whom that brilliant light of hers will shine on.

Dawn is also survived by the love of her life, Kristopher Paul Shaffer; parents, Eric and Jamie Becker; sisters, Jennifer Murphy, Dia Becker, and Erica Becker; nephews, Christian Murphy and Dak Buck; as well as many extended family members and friends who will miss her beaming presence.

Dawn will be welcomed into heaven by maternal grandparents, Joseph and Mary Graham; paternal grandparents, Donald and Ruth Becker; and aunts, Frannie Graham and Susan Becker.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 4, at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 68 Center St., Danville, with her pastor, the Rev. James E. Lease as celebrant. There will be no viewing or visitation prior to the service.

The family will provide flowers, and those wishing to honor Dawn's life will be invited to a charity run that will be announced in the spring.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Brady Funeral Home Inc., Danville.

So very sorry for your loss. Losing those we love is a heartbreaking experience, but God cares and through his word he comforts us. "He hears your prayers and sees your tears."(2 Kings 20:5 ) and Acts 24:15 says there will be a resurrection. What a wonderful hope to see your loved one again. I send my deepest condolences to your family.
