Dawn S. (Pierce) McPherson, 78, went to be with her Lord Saturday, December 27, 2014, surrounded by her loving family. She was predeceased by her mother, Catharine Collins; her step-father, Robert E. Collins; and grandson, Adam McPherson. She is survived by her husband of 60 years, Richard (Dick) C. McPherson; her five children, Robert (Lois), Richard M. (Seanne), Scott (Cathleen), Kathryn Klein (Thomas), Patrick (Cathy); fourteen grandchildren; and nineteen great-grandchildren. She loved her family and was loved and respected by all those who had the pleasure to meet her. Dawn always had enough food at her table, enough room in her home, enough love in her heart for family, friend and stranger.
