Feb 7, 1962- Sept 28, 2021
Dawn Varner was born Feb 7, 1962 in OKC, OK to her parents, Max Bratton and Donna Cook Thompson. She passed from this world at 59 years old on Sept 28, 2021.
She was raised in Oklahoma and graduated from Chickasha High School in 1980. While in Oklahoma she met and married her husband of 39 years, Paul E Varner. To their family they added two sons, Lance and Scott.
In 1985, they moved to Michigan, where she served as a para-pro for the Willow Run School District. She was an avid reader, loved butterflies and all children, but her grandchildren were the “apple of her eye”!
She was preceded in death by her father and both maternal and paternal grandparents, Hazel and John Cook and Ethel Bratton.
She is survived by her husband Paul; sons Lance and Scott(Amanda); mother Donna; sister Kim(Curtis) Skinner; brother Mark(Judy) Jackson; grandchildren Hailie, Johnathon, Hanna, Hayden, Logan and Charleigh; and many more loving family members.
A memorial service will be held in Oklahoma at a later date.
In lieu of flowers contribution may be made to the American Cancer Society in Dawn’s memory.
