The Bristol Kendall Fire Protection District firefighter apparently killed by a bull mastiff in her home Monday will be remembered at a memorial this weekend.
According the BKFD Facebook page, a memorial service for Dawn Brown is set for 11 a.m. Saturday at English Congregational Church, 301 Rhodes St. in Big Rock.
There is no public visitation or interment.
Brown was found dead Monday inside her home on the 400 block of Jefferson Street in Big Rock. The Kane County Coroner's autopsy determined Brown died of attack wounds from a mastiff, one of three dogs that she and her husband owned.
Brown was a full-time firefighter/paramedic for the Bristol Kendall Fire Protection District, as well as a part-time paramedic for the Big Rock Fire Protection District.
Brown was a caretaker and enjoyed baking cookies and cooking dinner for her coworkers, said Big Rock Fire Lt. David Denison.
"She’d go out of her way to help people," Denison said on Wednesday. "She made it her career. She’s going to be missed."
