Dawn Rumple LeFaivre

August 23, 1969 — February 4, 2022

Dawn Rumple LeFaivre, 52, passed from this life into the arms of her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ on Friday, February 2, 2022 at Iredell Memorial Hospital surrounded by her loving family. She died as a result of complications from CoVid19.
She was born August 23, 1969 in Iredell County, NC, the daughter of Donna B. Shoaf (Ray) and Steve M. Rumple (Libby). On August 29, 1998 she married the love of her life, John D. LeFaivre, who survives.
Dawn was a graduate of West Iredell High School and earned an Associate Degree in Business at Mitchell Community College. She was currently disability retired. She worked in many fields during her working years, but she enjoyed most her duties at Ex-Ray Expedite Inc. as the office manager and dispatcher, but best of all she loved her time at Highland Canine Training where she was not only the office manager but the photographer, “baby” sitter and novice trainer of beautiful “working” animals and rescue pups. She was an active member of The Rock Church where she served as the children’s teacher before the CoVid19 pandemic forced her and her family to remain home as much as possible. She was an avid crafter, seamstress and knitter. There was nothing she couldn’t make.
In addition to her husband and parents, left to cherish her memory are a son, B. Wayne Slaughter (Samantha), two grandchildren, Ashlyn and Addison Slaughter, a brother, Scott D. Rumple (Joy), as well as two bonus sisters, Tresa S. Shaw, Kristi S. Byers (Chad), a bonus brother, Vernon Shoaf, Jr. (Rebecca), her mother-in-law, Sheila S. Morrow, sisters-in-law, Stephanie N.

Morrison, and James A. Beam (Evelyn) and paternal grandparents, Mildred E. Rumple and Jasper M. Rumple.
