 Dawn Pagano, 74 , of Niles  entered heaven on June 21, 2023, at St. Joseph’s Hospital, surrounded by her family. She was born in Warren, Ohio, on March 31, 1949, to T.L.  and Frances Wood Boyer.
Dawn graduated from Niles High School in 1967, where she met her husband, Mathew. The two were married on August 29, 1970. They had three children, Mark, Stacey and Mathew.
Dawn was a graduate from Trumbull Nursing School in 1970. After graduation ,she worked one year at Trumbull Memorial Hospital. She went on to work at Warren General Hospital, now known as St. Joe’s, where she was loved and respected, as the Midnight Shift Nursing Supervisor, until retiring in 2012. After retirement, Dawn enjoyed going to the casino with her husband and going to lunch with her friends. Her greatest enjoyment was the time spent with her grandchildren. Prior to her illness, she was at every game, recital, ceremony, and event she could get to. She was affectionately known as “Gree” to her grandchildren.
Dawn will always be remembered by everyone who was lucky enough to know her, as one of the kindest persons they ever met. She left her mark on this world, and it will never be the same for her family and friends. During her most recent stay, Dawn was visited by numerous co-workers and she received VIP treatment. Her family was fortunate to hear about the many wonderful memories they have of her, and the impact she made on them.
