POTSDAM -- Dawn Crocie, 52, passed away Monday, February 26, after a battle with cancer.
Dawn was born December 21, 1965 in Rahway, NJ to the late Marilyn Crocie and the late Ronald Crocie.
She was a longtime resident of New Jersey, and had moved to Potsdam to live closer to her sons and her grandchildren.
Dawn was very proud of her accomplishments in school, receiving both a Liberal Arts degree from Warren County Community College and a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Thomas Edison State University.
She was able to accomplish her school goals all while working full time and raising five kids. Dawn always wanted to be a mother, and her greatest achievement in life was raising her children. Later in life, she was able to be a loving grandmother to all of her grandchildren.
If Dawn wasn’t working or with her kids she could always be found with a cup of coffee, her beloved dog, Benny, and either listening to Ozzy Osbourne on her computer or working on her car. Dawn had a love for Honda Civics and her all time favorite, classic Dodge Chargers.
Dawn was always there to talk, and she was the first person everyone called when they needed advice. She will be deeply missed by so many.
Dawn is survived by her bothers, Kevin, Ron, and David; her sister, Tina; her sons, Sean, Paul, and Michael; her daughters, Venus and Angel; her daughters-in-law, Mindy, Angela, and Amanda; and her grandchildren, Xaviar, Skyler, Domanik, Logan, and Jordan.
Private services will be held at the convenience of the family.
