Obituary of Dawn Marie Marka

Dawn M. Marka

(nee Ciresi)

Age 57 of Oakdale

After bravely fighting an acute illness of unknown origins for the past six months, Dawn died peacefully on April 2, 2024, surrounded by family and love. Born December 17, 1966. Preceded in death by her parents Thomas and Patricia Ciresi.  Survived by her husband Kurt; sons Andrew (Julie), Jacob, Nicholas (Emily), Jordan (Dariyn), and Noah (Hannah); grandchildren Hailey, Aubrey, Arthur, and Johnny; and many other family and friends. Dawn grew up in North St. Paul, and moved to Oakdale after starting her family. She worked in customer service for many years, but her ultimate passion was that of wife, mother, and grandmother.  She loved her family, friends, and pets fiercely.  Dawn was known as an avid traveler, card player, and shopper.  Outside of her family, Dawn's biggest passion was cat rescue efforts.  Over her life, Dawn raised many cats and also participated in local TNR efforts for stray cats.  In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Furball Farm Cat Sanctuary in Dawn's honor. 

Memorial Service Thursday April 11th, 11:00 AM at North Haven Church, 2240 15th AVE. East, North St. Paul, MN (Visitation 10:00 AM until time of service). Reception to follow.
