Ayvah Brielle Dawson, a treasured soul whose fleeting presence graced the earth, was born on May 5, 2023, in Mishawaka, Indiana, and passed away on December 2, 2023, in South Bend, Indiana. She was the beloved daughter of Jalynn D. Dawson and Sydney Hurt, and though her days were brief, her luminous spirit left a resounding warmth in the hearts of those who knew her.
Her existence, a brief but beautiful whisper in time, was marked by the unconditional love and joy she brought to her cherished family. In addition to her parents, Ayvah is survived by an adoring sister, Elianna Dawson, and a caring brother, Jeremiah Dawson. The family lineage continues to honor her through the reverent thoughts of her doting maternal grandparents, Tamera (John) Hamilton of South Bend, and Ricky Hurt of Niles, Michigan, along with her attentive maternal grandmother, Maureen DeMuth. On her paternal side, Ayvah's memory is enshrined by a devoted grandmother, Latasha Lauderdale of South Bend, and a grandfather, Joel Dawson of Georgia. Ayvah is preceded in death by her maternal grandmother, Melissa M. Hurt and her paternal grandmother, Pamela Agnew.
The essence of Ayvah's life will live on through aunts Chy'anna Dawson and Lashawnda Lauderdale of South Bend, Kristina (Shannon) Kuchik, and a cohort of beloved uncles, Davonn Dawson, Terrance Nailon, Lashawn Golden, Lavelle Golden, all of South Bend, and Colin Larson of Texas.
Ayvah's life, albeit brief, was abundant with the purity and promise of early dawn, and her memory will continue to be a guiding star for all those who had the privilege of being a part of her story. Her light will forever shine brightly in the lineage and love of the Dawson and Hurt families.
