Dawn M. Plotts

October 1, 1966 — June 27, 2017

Dawn Marie “Magnuson” Plotts, 50, of rural Roseville, IL died at 7:15 pm Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at her home.

“Yellapy” wasn’t only a wife, mother, daughter and grandmother; those were merely her favorite things to be. No, Dawn was a caring, loving, brutally honest mentor and companion to so many dear friends, not only locally but from coast to coast.
As irony would have it, her life could be described as a graceful symphony. The songs she sang not only with her breathtaking voice that commanded every ear in the room, but also the songs she whispered in her heart. A heart full of simple pleasures, like capturing the perfect photo through the eye of a lense and the click of a finger. The solace of a soft breeze and the pages of her current book with the gentle nudge and purr of her beloved fur babies.
It wasn’t only the simple things her heart sang for. The shine of her soul was also bright through the many events she dedicated her time to. Her dearest selfless composition was The Duwayne Brooks Music Festival For Diabetes. Which bring us to the three Amigos. Dawn, Duwayne and Lori were inseparable friends that need no explanation. A powerful friendship for the ages indeed.
Although, the song she sang with the most perfect pitch was the one she hymned for her family, in which she couldn’t have orchestrated without her maestro, soulmate and best friend Theodore Brian Plotts. The genuine love and appreciation they shared wasn’t just something they did, it was something that radiated off of every kiss they shared. The music notes they made together dance on the earth in the form of their children. Noelle, the Strong, Sarah, the Peace, Alicia, the kind, Christyna, the Determined, and Skyler, the Brave. And the sparkles that glow from her smile to her eyes are twirling about as the half notes that are her grandbabies. Shelby, Bailey, Taylor, Maxine, and Aubrey. With the help of her son in laws Paul, Tony, and Jake, her legacy lives on through them forever.
Her orchestra doesn’t stop there. Her childhood friend and sister Terrie along with an endless list of family both living and passed, are a stanza of people who molded and shaped her into the woman she became.
She lived! She was fierce! She sings and dances still with the sand between her toes and the echo of waves crashing to the shore. The bright brilliant radiance of her mother and lighthouse, Mabel, has led her safely home, where she now shines to guide us.
