January 21, 1970 - May 23, 2020
Dawn Michelle Head was born on January 21, 1970, to John E. Rabun and Nancy Lynn Shirey Lata. Dawn was an avid runner, participating for more than twenty years in the world’s largest 10K race—The Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta, Georgia. A member of the Methodist faith, Dawn was personable, friendly, and big-hearted. Her favorite Bible verse from I Corinthians 13:4, “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud,” describes her and her desire to always be compassionate and gracious. Dawn wanted people to know she was available when anyone needed love and care. Dawn enjoyed being a part of community events. She loved being out and about with people enough to be called a social butterfly. Her favorite event was Cashiers Chocolate Cook-Off, which she won several times. Her kindness also extended to animals, and she rescued an ugly, gnarly-looking dog named Alex that she absolutely adored. Dawn’s great love for her girls was evident. They brought her so much joy and pleasure. She always wanted to be known as a “community mom” and kept out the welcome mat for all of their friends. She enjoyed being a part of their lives. When you hear “I Hope You Dance” by Leann Womack or “Slow Dancing in a Burning Room” by John Mayer, two of Dawn’s favorite songs, remember her and picture her dancing the night away in heavenly places. Dawn and her husband, David F. Head, both died tragically on May 23, 2020. She is survived by her parents and her daughters, Sidney H. Sanborn and Erin Charlie Sanborn. She was predeceased by her step-father, Pete Lata.
