It is with heavy hearts and wearied spirits that the family of Dawn
Marie (Webster) Boyer announce her passing on March 26, 2021 at the
Northumberland Hills Hospital in Cobourg, Ontario.
Dawn left us just as spring was beginning, leaving to mourn the
family that was her world; her loving husband and constant companion
of over 43 years, Brian F. Boyer, their son Dallas and Kate (Crofts)
Boyer and their children Colin and Emma. Their daughter Breanne
(Boyer) and Jason Gibbens and their children Jacob and Jaxson.
Also struggling with this profound loss, Dawn’s childhood friend
and sister in heart, her sister in law Cheryl Webster, her children
Dylan and Stacey (Amelotte) Webster, their daughter Ruby and Bailey
Webster, Alejandro W. Duenas and their son Alejandro.
Brian’s family – Sharon (Boyer) and Howard Geldart, their
children Jamie Geldart and Rebecca (Bex) Fuller, Kris Geldart, his
children Ava, Kamden and Jaxen, Adam and Shaunessy (Westbury) Geldart
and their son Sam and Andy and Nancy (Montgomery) Boyer. Dawn also
leaves behind in sadness many dear friends, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Dawn was predeceased by her parents, Victor and Shirley Webster,
most recently her only sibling, her brother Lynn Webster and
Brian’s parents, Frank and Ruth Boyer.
Dawn’s passing leaves a hole in our lives that was once filled
with her one of a kind personality. Dawn had a joie de vivre that few
possess. Those that knew her best will remember her for her sense of
humour and her tenacity of spirit. Dawn was always laughing or making
others laugh. She had a knack for telling stories in a way that left
you breathless with laughter. Dawn was resourceful, creative,
inventive and loving. Her grandchildren were a constant source of
delight and often recipients of her creative, crafty persona. Students
fortunate enough to have Mrs. Boyer as their teacher in Scarborough
will certainly benefit from that happy circumstance.
Dawn retired from teaching in 2016 and she and Brian moved from
Scarborough to Port Hope where she enjoyed every minute of every day
in her new career and home. She loved to tell people – as she was
enjoying travel or relaxation that “I get paid to do
this”. Dawn and Brian travelled often and that fueled her
Dawn’s passing is especially tragic for her family – both
immediate and extended coming so close to the passing of her only
sibling, her brother Lynn in 2020. Our lives will never be the
Dawn and Brian moved to Ontario in 1977 and had a wonderful life in
that beautiful province. Dawn was born in Perth, N.B. and returned
often to visit her family in Perth-Andover but in her heart she also
lived at Belyeas Cove on the beautiful Washademoak Lake.
Think of Dawn when you see a field of daisies or a dragonfly dancing
in the summer sky. Her gardens were a constant source of pride to
