Dawn Wyss, 55, of Fort Wayne died September 16, 2020 peacefully at home with her family. Dawn was born July 27, 1965 in Fort Wayne as the daughter of Michael and Arleen Koester. She graduated from Leo Junior Senior High School Class of 1983 and earned a Vocational Certificate of Travel Career Training from Associated Schools Inc. in North Miami Beach, Florida in 1984. She worked as a Travel Consultant for various Fort Wayne agencies, including Grueninger Travel, for nearly a decade before shifting her focus to raising a family. In the late 2000s, Dawn excelled as a “guard mom” for the Homestead High School Colorguard: hosting team meals, sewing costumes, doing hair and makeup at competitions, and chaperoning students on the bus. Dawn re-entered the workforce in 2007 as a Retail Associate at Rustic Hutch, and later, a Sales Lead at Pier 1 Imports. She was a long-time member of Calvary Christian Fellowship Church where she often volunteered serving meals to the community. In her spare time, Dawn enjoyed traveling to beach destinations, scrapbooking, gardening, and reading The Bible.
