Dawna Elizabeth Weyman, 60, went to be with her Lord and Savior on August 8th, 2017. She died at home, unexpectedly, of a heart attack. She will be sorely missed.
Dawna, born on April 12th, 1957, was the second child of the late Jack and Lois Weyman. She lived in Columbiana her entire life.
Ms. Weyman graduated from Columbiana High School in 1976. She was a graduate of Kent State University and ITT Technical Institute. Dawna loved animals and enjoyed volunteering at Angels for Animals. She also volunteered at The Columbiana Public Library and babysat for The First Presbyterian Church’s mom’s group.
Dawna was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, where she was unconditionally accepted and generously loved. More than anything, she loved reading her Bible and always had it with her.
Dawna enjoyed reading, listening to music, quilting, crocheting, working on puzzles, and playing with dogs. While her parents were still living, she loved working in their yard with her father. In 1998 and 2000, the arrival of her nieces, Jacquelyn and Madison, brought new purpose and joy to her life. She loved holding them, reading to them, and later devoted her time attending all their activities.
Dawna was a devoted daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, never missing an opportunity to talk about her nieces or to spend time with her family.
She leaves to mourn her passing a brother, David Weyman and wife Debbie of Youngstown and a sister, Katherine Chapman and husband Dan Hudock of Columbiana. She also leaves her two beloved nieces, Jacquelyn Katherine and Madison Grace Chapman.
Her family would like to thank her doctor and the aides at Home Care Advantage for their kindness.
There will be a Celebration of Life service on Thursday, August 24th at 7:00 pm at Warrick-Kummer-Rettig Funeral Home, Columbiana. Friends may call one hour prior to the service.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in honor of Dawna may be made to Angels for Animals, the American Diabetes Association, or to a charity of the donor’s choice.
