Obituary

Obituary for Dawn M. Foley

Dawn Michelle Foley, a resident of Valrico Fl and formerly White Plains, NY died June 6, 2019 at the age of 50. She was born March 9, 1969 in Yonkers, NY to James L. and Marilyn (Fedorczak) Foley.
Dawn was educated in White Plains and graduated White Plains Senior High School with honors, class of 1987. She then went on to graduate from Westchester Community College and worked with a Lawyer & Accounting firm as an office manager during her college years. After College, Dawn worked as an Administrator & Logistics Secretary for Fuji Film, Memorex, Zeiss Corporation and the Snapple Corporation, all in Westchester. She loved to travel and did so for business and pleasure while she was healthy and working. She wanted to see the world. She enjoyed swimming, roller blading, fishing, music, dancing and her pets. She had a great sense of humor.

Dawn loved life, liberty & the pursuit of happiness. She befriended everyone and never had a harsh word for anyone. She loved being Irish and the Firefighter pipe band that her father was a member of. She was a cheerleader with her mom for her brother Rob’s hockey teams. She was also an avid NY Ranger Hockey fan and traveled to see all open practices here in Westchester and nearby games.

Dawn loved all things music; Rock & Roll, Disco, Country and Western, Honky Tonk, Oldies and classic Willie Nelson, Andre Bocelli, Celine Dion, Elvis and Eamon’s voice were among her favorites. Dancing was a favorite also, to Mr. “T’s” dance band at Vista Pines in Stuart, FL where her parents have a condo.

She loved spending summers in Amagansett, NY at the beach, swimming and fishing were always fun until she became an insulin dependent diabetic at age 22. The sun lowered her blood sugars way too much. It was time to change, so she changed gears and took up photography; afterglow sunsets, seagulls, boats, ocean scenes that would stand up to the best post-cards out there.

She was an avid reader and loved Elizabeth Browning Barrett, “How do I love thee, let me count the ways”, her favorite play was Phantom of the Opera.

She loved Italian food and Irish Soda Bread!

Dawn’s many friends and relatives were aware of her many health problems due to her diabetes and always watched over her. She called them the “Special Angel Squad”. She had a great sense of humor.

9 ½ years ago she moved to Valrico , Fl to be with Eamon Doyle and his daughter Emily. Eamon was given the “Crash Course” in diabetes, by Dawn’s mom, who is an RN.
Dawn was in love, happy and healthy and best of all, Eamon was a great cook! Each winter her parents were “Snow Birds” and spent 6 months with Dawn and her “new” family.

This year, things got a little challenging for Dawn. She needed a second back surgery, which they say went well, but post-op did not go well for her. Many alarming signs started to occur and she was placed on kidney dialysis, until the end.
The family would like to thank all of her doctors in White Plains Hospital, Stamford CT Hospital, Brandon Hospital in Florida and all the great cardiac care and ICU nurses for all of their great care and support over the last 28 years.

Dawn is survived by her life partner, Eamon Doyle and his daughter Emily of Valrico, Fl, her parents, James and Marilyn Foley of White Plains, her brother Robert Foley and his son Sean of Cortlandt Manor, her ex sister-in-law Jennifer Foley of Yorktown, NY and her many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends, far too many to list.

“May she rest in peace now, forever in our thoughts and prayers”

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Tennessee.
