BEALS – Dawn Euda (Marcoux) Mossler, 44, died Sept. 7, 2006, at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., after a long illness. Her husband of 14 years, U.S. Air Force Maj. William R. “Bill” Mossler, was by her side when she passed away. Dawn was born Dec. 1, 1961, in Ellsworth, the daughter of Charles “Eddie” and Amanda (Alley) Marcoux. Dawn spent her entire childhood and youth on Beals Island, and graduated from Jonesport-Beals High School Class of 1980. She worked for Machias Savings Bank, Machias for several years. After their marriage in 1992, Bill and Dawn were stationed at a number of Air Force bases around the country, including Keesler in Mississippi, Pope in North Carolina, Wright-Patterson in Ohio, Hanscom in Massachusetts, and most recently Bolling in Washington, D.C. Dawn was proud to be part of a military family; she loved exploring the country, seeing new places, and meeting new people. The many friends she made appreciated her warm heart and beautiful smile wherever she went. She enjoyed reading, being outdoors, gardening, bird watching, and crafts of all kinds. She was especially fond of summers spent at the family camp on Sebec Lake, and she enjoyed visiting lighthouses along the coast. She continued her career as a bank teller, until her health prevented her from working. She battled bowel and lung disease for a number of years, and she remained courageous and uncomplaining throughout her illness. Dawn is survived by her husband, Bill; her mother, Amanda Marcoux of Beals; a brother, Carl of Lubec; a sister, Theresa Leighton and her husband, Tony, of Grandview, Mo.; nephew, Adam Merchant and his wife, Andrea, of Beals, and children, Camon, Cadon and Evan; niece, Stacie Alley of Hancock, and children, Austin and Madison; nephew, Mason Merchant and his wife, Jessica, of Jonesport and daughter, Cheyenna; parents-in-law, Michael and LouAnn Mossler of Weeks Mills; sister-in-law, Laurie Mossler of Carlisle, Pa.; brother-in-law, Mark Mossler and his wife, Renee, of Rowley, Mass., and children, Alyssa, Anna and Alivia; special friends, Chuck and Tracy Rockwell of Lithia, Fla.; many aunts, uncles, cousins and other beloved relatives and dear friends.
