Dawn M. Palm

Dawn (Gullo) Palm was born April 27, 1938 - She went to be with her father, mother, and younger sister on October 13, 2022, at 4:47 pm.

She married her best friend and love of her life on October 15, 1977. They spent every year vacationing for a month exploring the United States in a van. They have many memories and one of her favorites was Alaska and the Auroras.

Dawn started her career as an RN in the OB ward at St Joseph’s hospital. She retired from Chaffey Nursing Home as a CNA.

Dawn loved gardening and never used gloves because she liked the feel of the dirt. She also crocheted or knitted baby blankets or hats for all babies in the family.

Dawn had a kind heart, lots of love to give, lending an ear, a hug or just one of her funny smiles.

She left behind her husband Gaylord and a large extended family who will miss her but will be forever in their hearts.
