Dawn Marie McCance, 54, passed away peacefully Friday afternoon June 21, 2019 surrounded by her family. She was born in Newburyport on March 6, 1965 to Marilyn (Merrill) Reardon and the late Edward Reardon.
Raised and educated in Newburyport, Dawn was a graduate of Newburyport High School where she met and fell in love with her husband Jonathan McCance. Following her graduation, the couple settled in Newburyport where they got married before moving to Salisbury to raise their family. Dawn loved her family more than words could ever describe. She was full of optimism and positivity that was contagious to everyone around her and she had a passion for caring for her family and friends. She enjoyed gardening, spending time at the beach, and watching the Patriots play on Sundays with her Bruschi jersey on. She took pleasure in the simpler things in life, like sitting on her front porch on a nice sunny day.
In addition to her mother, Dawn is survived by her husband Jonathan McCance of Salisbury; children, Katie McCance of Amesbury, and Stephen McCance of Salisbury; siblings, the late Linda Chase (Reardon), Jill Frangipane (Reardon) and Anthony Reardon; several nieces and nephews, and her beloved cocker spaniel Charlie.
