Jill Leanne Dawson passed away from heart problems at Memorial Hospital in Bakersfield, Sept. 23, 2022. She was born to her parents, Don and Charlotte Hunt, at the Lancaster Hospital on June 8, 1968.

Jill graduated From Tehachapi High School; after high school she worked in the food service business and Walmart along with being a homemaker.
Jill always had a big smile, was easy to talk to, and had a big, loving heart. She loved animals and always had one in her arms. After coming from religious camp as a girl she told us she had been saved. We pray that Jesus will welcome her with loving, open arms. I and many others will miss this little redheaded girl.
