New Windsor, NY

Dawn Marie Milliken, of New Windsor, NY entered into eternal rest on February 1, 2024 in New Rochelle, NY. She was 53 years old.

The daughter of the late James Patrick Milliken and Alice Ruth Fowler, Dawn was born on December 23, 1970 in Newburgh, NY.

Dawn was a Forklift Operator for Metal Container Corp. in New Windsor, NY.

Dawn is survived by her pride and joy, her son: Evan C. Milliken at home; and by her brother: David (Kristen) Milliken of Maybrook, NY along with their children James and Alicen. She is also survived by her other brother: Joseph (Chativa) Uszenski of Otisville, NY and their children Dallas and Alora. Other survivors include her cousin, and best friend, Karen McQuiston of Newburgh, NY, Robert (Mary) Uszenski of Newburgh, NY and several other cousins and friends.

Dawn was a dedicated mother, daughter, sister and friend, who cared deeply for her family. She prioritized her family above all else. She would do anything for any one of them if she could, and sometimes even if she couldn’t, she would try do it anyway. Dawn fought hard in her battle with her illness, which even to the very end, no doctor could figure out, yet she never gave up. Dawn leaves behind her son Evan who she loved with everything she had. Dawn was a beautiful woman with a beautiful heart. She truly was the kindest soul. She will greatly be missed by her entire family and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. She was a light in this world that was extinguished far too soon.
