Dawn LK Townsend was born in Elton Maryland on February 2nd 1961 to John and Helen Kahler.
Dawn Townsend was a Wife, Mother, Daughter, Sister and Grandma. She lived a life brimful of joy and laughter. Dawn Townsend married Charles Townsend Sr. February 15, 1984. In 1984 and 1986 Dawn proudly gave birth to two strapping boys: Charles Townsend Jr. and Josh Townsend. Dawn was the queen of her home, a comforter, a gardner, a chef and a nurturer. Nothing was lost in Dawn's presence. She would find it a home or nurture it back to strength. Whether it be baby rabbits, squirrels, ducks, chickens, or neighboring children. And like a true nurture her kitchen was always open. She was always eager to provide and cook if anyone was in need or hungry. Her mothering instinct and kindness was always turned on. She was a true mountain lady, not afraid to chop wood, rake leaves, go fishing and get her hands dirty in the garden. But she was also the kind of mother that taught her boys the importance of God and the meaning of love in a family. The Townsend family moved from Kentucky to Louisiana in 1995. And their kindness quickly stole the hearts of their new Cajun family and friends; and we have never been the same since. I am not alone in saying we all cherished the time we had with Mrs. Dawn and look forward to much more of it in Heaven.
Dawn Townsend leaves behind, her husband, Charles Townsend Sr., her Sons, Charles (CJ) Townsend JR, and, Josh (Red) Townsend.
