LAURA – Dawn Irene Satterfield of Laura, Illinois, formerly of Adamsville, Tennessee, ascended to the arms of Jesus, surrounded by her family on Sunday, July 9, 2023, after a peaceful acceptance of stage 4 small cell carcinoma. Dawn was born in Chicago, Illinois, on January 5, 1964, to George and Linda (Turner) Matuck. She had four brothers, George (Lynette) Matuck, Donald Matuck, Michael Matuck and David Matuck. Dawn attended high school in West Aurora, where she met the love of her life, Daniel.
Dawn was united in marriage to Daniel Satterfield on July 25, 1980. Together, they were blessed with three daughters, Barbara (Robert) Travis of Shelbyville, Ill., Jennifer Satterfied of Decatur, Ill. and Jessica (Jason) Buckley of Laura, Ill. Dawn is also survived by 14 grandchildren, Marissa, Mikayla, Andrew and Lillyana Travis, Logan, Collin, Nathan and Harley Satterfield and Jacqueline, Magnus, Addison, Reece, Rhett and Waylon Buckley. She was privileged to have one great-grandson, Roman Travis.
Dawn was preceded in death by her father, George, when she was 13; her brother, David; sister-in-law, Margaret Soria; brother-in-law, David Bester, father-in-law, Louis Satterfield and sister-in-law, Rose Satterfield.
She was a dedicated employee of Wal-Mart, working in several different departments, positions and states for the company. Dawn loved to be in the outdoors, whether it be on the lake with her father-in-law fishing, planting vegetables or flowers in the garden, or playing with her grandchildren, as long as she was in the sun, she was the happiest. She had a servant’s heart and was the most forgiving, hard working person you’d ever meet. Dawn was always going far above and beyond to help anyone in need. Her world was her children and grandchildren. She always tried to see the best in everyone she met. When Dawn was faced with the fate of rapid, terminal cancer, she chose to spend her remaining days surrounded by the love of her family.
A celebration of life service will be held at a later date.
Memorials may be made to Center for Prevention of Abuse, 720 West Joan Court, Peoria, IL 61614.
Arrangements have been entrusted to Knapp-Johnson Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Morton.
