Obituary for Dawn M. Middaugh

Dawn Machaele Middaugh, of Onaway, died on Thursday November 14, 2019 at McLaren Northern Michigan Hospital in Petoskey. She was 54 years old. Born in Farmington Hills on February 20, 1965, Dawn was the only child of James F. and Ruby K. (Rutherford) Baker. She married William J. “Bill” Middaugh on June 17, 1988 in Farmington Hills where they lived until 1995 when they moved to Onaway.

Compassionate, caring, and giving of herself, Dawn was a loving wife and nurturing mother. She was passionate about making a loving home and spending time with her family, especially her grandson, Bentley. A good cook and excellent baker, Dawn made the best homemade cookies. She enjoyed playing computer and Facebook games, including Farmville, Candy Crush, and Matching Manor. Dawn loved going to bingo, scratch-off lottery tickets, and an occasional visit to the casino. With a tender place in her heart for animals, Dawn loved the family pets and was always excited to see the wild life of Northern Michigan when she and Bill would go two-tracking.

Blessed with the wonderful attribute of recognizing the good in people, Dawn gave everyone a chance. Dawn’s compassion and respect for others, her willingness to put others before herself, and her unconditional love and support for her family will be sadly missed and fondly remembered.

Surviving Dawn is her husband of 31 years, Bill Middaugh of Onaway; daughter, Kayde Middaugh, also of Onaway; sons, David Middaugh of Cheboygan and Nikolas (Makaela) Middaugh of Onaway; and grandson, Bentley Bull as well as many aunts, uncles, and cousins. Dawn was preceded in death by her parents.

A Celebration of Life will be held at the Tower Hall on Friday November 22, 2019 where Dawn's family will receive friends from 2 pm - 6 pm. Please consider a donation in memory of Dawn to her family to help with medical and final expenses.
