Dawn Newell, 45
RANGELEY - Dawn Elizabeth Newell, 45, of Yarmouth, lost her life in a tragic snowmobile accident on Sunday, Dec. 30, 2012, while riding in Rangeley.
She was born on April 12, 1967, at Fort Knox, Ky., to Bruce and Judie Hathaway. She grew up and went to school in Yarmouth, graduating in 1985 from Yarmouth High School.
Dawn was previously married to Ronnie Newell and lived in a beautiful home that Ron helped build in Durham. They had a son, Kyle Matthew, born to them in 1996. Dawn continued her education receiving her associate's degree in Criminal Justice at Andover College. She worked as a dispatcher for the Cumberland and Yarmouth Police Departments.
She enjoyed riding ATV's, snowmobiles, motorcycles and was an active member of the Ridin' Steel Motorcycle Club. She frequently participated in motorcycle rides for various causes and charities. She loved hanging out with friends, but her life mostly revolved around her son, Kyle, to whom she was totally devoted.
Although severely injured in an earlier snowmobile accident, she never complained and never let her disabilities slow her down. Dawn always had a smile on her face, was cheerful, outgoing and the epitome of 'girls just want to have fun.' She lived her life her way and lived it to the fullest.
Dawn is survived by her son, Kyle Matthew Newell of Durham; her father Bruce Hathaway of Yarmouth, her mother Judie Bayles of Cape Coral, Fla.; her brother Brett Hathaway of Chester, N.H., her sister Katlyn Dennis of Cumming, Ga.; and her brother Ryan Hathaway of South Grafton, Mass.
A celebration of Dawn's life will be held on Monday, Jan. 7, beginning at 1 p.m., at Lindquist Funeral Home, One Mayberry Lane, Yarmouth, followed by a reception at the AMVETS Post #2 Hall, 178 North Rd., Yarmouth.
