Print Obituary
Dawn C. Winterbauer, 51, of New Athens, IL, passed away Tuesday, April 20, 2021, at St. Louis University Hospital, St. Louis, MO, surrounded by her family.

Dawn was born January 19, 1970, in Red Bud, IL, the daughter of Andrew and Ruth Buss.  Dawn proudly graduated from Southwestern Illinois College, Belleville, IL, with an associate degree in 2014. Dawn enjoyed being outside and being around family, but she most enjoyed fishing, and being a mom to Samantha.

She was preceded in death by her father, Andrew M. Buss.

Dawn is survived by her mother, Ruth Buss; fiancé and longtime love, Mike Smith; her daughter, Samantha (Shannon Clossen) Winterbauer; a sister, Monica (Danny) Lemp; a brother, Jason (Dan Hamilton) Buss; a niece, Ashley (Ash) Groom; and two nephews, Clayton Taff and Daniel Lemp Jr.

Dawn will be greatly missed by everyone who had the pleasure of meeting her, including everyone she met while working in the antique business. While this came very suddenly, her family and loved ones take comfort in knowing Dawn is now pain free and fishing with her dad again, which she talked of fondly. Dawn, we love you so much!
