Dawn Marie Douglas of Little Falls passed away unexpectedly on Saturday morning, Nov. 1, 2003, in Little Falls Hospital at the age of 38.

She was born on April 29, 1965, in Little Falls, a daughter of Paul and Barbara (Chuck) Klock, who reside in Little Falls. She was educated in West Canada schools, graduating with the high school "Class of 1983." She attended SUNY-Alfred and the Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School in Massachusetts. On July 21, 1990, Dawn was married to James M. Douglas in the Christ Lutheran Church, Little Falls. Throughout their union, Dawn and Jim shared their lives and also a deep love and a true respect for one another. She was currently employed as a teacher assistant for pre-school at Benton Hall Academy, where she was a member of the Parent Teacher Association. She was of the Catholic faith.

Dawn was a fun-loving woman. She enjoyed her life and delighted in the many people who were such an important and meaningful part of her life, especially her family and students. A thorough professional, Dawn was an educator who truly loved her work. As she fulfilled the central purpose of her career, which was to assist and encourage learning, she strived to make the students events in the classroom creative and exciting. Although Dawn's teaching career was short, it was surely and effectively an inspiration to her students and co-workers. A loving and dedicated wife, mother, daughter and sister, she was a confidante to her loved ones and possessed a gentle concern, which was represented by her outgoing personality and the warmth of her smile. She enjoyed snowmobiling, camping and skiing.
