Fawn worked for Bellin Health Bond Community Center in Oconto for over 10 years, until her health no longer allowed her to. It was here she formed many lasting friendships. Fawn enjoyed visiting flower gardens, and took great pride in her own flower garden. She could frequently be found working tirelessly to maintain it’s beauty, and received numerous recognitions.
