MASSENA – Dawn M. (Curran) Corliss, 66, of 9 Laurel Ave, passed away early Tuesday morning, July 6, 2021 at the University of Vermont Medical Center.

Dawn was born on July 31, 1954 in Malone, the daughter of the late Gerald T. and Beverly E. (Farmer) Curran. She attended Sacred Heart School and graduated from Holy Family High School.

Dawn was very nice to me when I moved into the building. She always had a smile on her face every time I saw her. So very sad to see a nice person go. My heart goes out to her family & friends during this saddened time.
