On the evening of May 15th, Dawn Huttl peacefully passed. Her time with Lou Gehrig’s disease is over. She joins the Lord and her mother as she looks over us from Heaven. We will see her again.
Dawn was a long time resident of the Rogue Valley. She grew up in Talent with her father and mother Don and Darla Borns, and two sisters Kristi (Kelly) and Penny (Garibay). Dawn attended Talent Middle School and Phoenix High School, where she was a top student and participated in band, basketball and cheerleading. She stopped credits shy of her Nursing degree at SOU so she could raise her family.
Some may remember Dawn as Dawn Hagler. After high school she married area athlete, teacher and coach Joe Hagler. That blessed union gave them three children; Annie Hagler, Holly (Campbell) and Joey Hagler. Holly and her husband Matthew have two children; Kamryn and Nolan. Dawn’s kids and grandkids were the lights of her life.
Others may remember Dawn as the smiling face and friendly voice at Doctor Chris Morgan’s office. In her decades as his assistant, she deeply cared for each of her patients. Children were her favorites, and in that sense Dawn helped raise countless valley youth.
Later in life, Dawn married John Huttl. John is a local attorney, teacher and sports official. They enjoyed spending time with friends and family. They traveled as much as they could. It was a special treat when friends and loved ones joined them and their dog Jake camping at the coast.
Donations can be made to The ALS Association Oregon and SW Washington Chapter's Walk to Defeat ALS under the team name Dawn’s Dynamos.
