  • Her name was Dawn and she cut hair at the Great Clips on the ridge. She was out for a run and apparently collapsed. She was a loving wife and my best friend. I will miss her terribly.

  • Dawn will be missed. She has cut our family’s hair for years, she’s been a staple on the ridge, and I’m sure she’s cut half of the neighborhood’s hair by now. Super nice lady. The folks over at Great Clips were devistated when I visited there earlier today, l hope the community can show some support. I understand she is survived by her husband. Such nice people, and Dawn was especially a kind and sweet lady!
