Obituary of Dawn Worden

Please share a memory of Dawn to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Dawn R. Worden, 84, passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side at The Abraham House in Rome on Thursday, February 22, 2024.


She was born on May 5, 1939, to the late Ellison and Agnes (Schram) Root. Dawn worked for many years at The Rome State School and at the Presbyterian Home as a nurse’s aide. She was the kind of woman that would help out anyone and she loved her family and friends dearly. You can’t forget how fond she was of every animal she ever had including her rescue dog Buster. She loved talking to people, trips to the casino, garage sales, and her time spent at the Clark Mills Historical Society. 


She is survived by her sons William Daws and his love Barb Mosher, Don and Terra Worden; daughters, Rebecca (Armando) Banuelos, and Ann ( Kevin) House; grandchildren, Derek, Trinell,  Armando Jr., Marvin, Hector, Vanessa, Michael, Andy, Tyler, Devon, Alivia, Anthony, Dominick, Scarlett and Charlotte; great-grandchildren, Vincent and Sophia; brother, Marvin (Sheila) Root and a  large extended family.  She also had too many friends to count including the Daws Family, Geer Family, Mary, Joyce, Theresa, Dick, Terry, Dori, and Jean.  Predeceased by her beloved son Bobby in 1968, and her beloved Robert Daws.


Following Dawn’s wishes there will be no calling hours or services. Condolences may be left online at owenspavlotrogers.com. She will be laid to rest in the spring in Kirkland Cemetery.


Her family wishes to thank her good friends Sam and Monique Mancuso  and Rob and Lyndsey Emery for always looking out for her and being there when she needed anything. Her Family would also like to thank the wonderful staff at the Abraham House of Rome for their care in her final days.
