Dawn M. Harbison


Dawn M. Harbison passed away on December 22, 2018. She was 91. 

She was born September 23, 1927, in St. Louis, MO to Lucas F. Roth and Alma M. (Nuckles) Roth.  She devoted her life to raising four boys, was very supportive of her husband and cared deeply for her family. Friends describe her as a very kind soul, caring more for others than herself. She was a very active member of Vinita Park United Methodist Church (UMC) serving in many leadership positions. She later became a member of the Clayton UMC and most recently The Gathering UMC. 

She was very active in the United Methodist Women at both the local church and state levels. In addition, she served on the Women’s Auxiliary Board of Kingdom House and was very active in supporting their services.

Survivors include her husband of 70 years, Jack of the home, four sons, Mark (Rebecca) of Fayette, Mo, David (Susan) of Nixa, MO, Andrew (Cheryl) of Portland, OR and Stephen (friend Susan Boland) of St. Peters, MO along with four grandchildren and five great grandchildren. 

A private memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.
