Share this obituary

Dawn Marie (Covell) Oliver, 65, of Malvern, passed away Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021, at St Anthony’s Hospital in Lakewood, CO. 

Born June 28, 1955, in Canton, she was a daughter of Paul Manypenny, Sr. and the late Faythe (Schuster) Manypenny. 

Dawn was never at a loss for words and she always had a way of making you feel exactly what she was saying. There was never a question in her intent, for it was always love. She was pure in her exchanges and she would give her opinion without flinching. If you failed to learn how to treat others, you, my friend, were not watching her! Bringing joy and happiness to others was her only objective in life.  She showed us the importance of being kind, lending a helping hand, and being strong in your faith. She was a devout member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Malvern. Please continue to honor her by loving graciously, living earnestly and forgiving easily. 

Dawn is survived by her husband, Dennis C. Oliver of Malvern; a daughter, Jodi Showers of Dover; a son, Eric (Sarah) Oliver of Four Seasons, MO; three grandchildren, Ian Showers, Emily Showers, and Tucker Oliver; four brothers: Mark Covell of Canton, Keith Covell of Tulsa, OK, Larry (Barbara) Covell of Annapolis, MD, and Paul Manypenny, Jr. “P.J.” of Canton. 

A funeral mass will be held at Friday, March 5,  at 11 a.m. at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, 125 Carrollton St. N., Malvern, with Celebrant Father Vic Cinson. Calling hours will be held at the church one hour prior to mass. All current face masks, social distancing and building occupancy rules will be observed according to the Health Department guidelines.
