Dawn Formy-Duval Bordeaux

Dawn Formy-Duval Bordeaux age 44 passed away on Monday, October 28, 2019.

Dawn was born in Wilmington, NC on July 19, 1975

She was a graduate of East Columbus High School and attended Southeastern Community College. Dawn grew up in Riegelwood and was a member of Cape Fear Baptist Church. She worked for Glen Meade Center for Women’s Health.

Dawn’s passions were her family, friends and her two dogs, “Piper” and “Zoey”. She would say her greatest gifts were her two sons, Reid and Rylan.  She had a friendly heart and soul,  and her greatest attributes was her compassion and her kind spirit.

Dawn is survived by her two sons, Reid Bordeaux (Erica), and Rylan Bordeaux; her father and mother, Charles Formy-Duval and Gloria O’Neal Formy-Duval; her maternal grandmother, Shirley O’Neal; one brother, Charles “Bubba” Formy-Duval (Karen);  special niece Anna Formy-Duval,  other aunts, uncles and cousins, including her  special cousin, Cody Bullard.

The family will see friends starting at 1 pm on Thursday with the Celebration of Life ceremony held at 2 pm Thursday, October 31, 2019 at Cape Fear Baptist Church 2851 Neils Eddy Road-Riegelwood, NC 28456 officiated by Rev. Doug Fairfax.  Burial will be in the Church Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Brian Allen, Michael Formy-Duval, Travis Wilkins, Scott Beck, Billy Potter, and Jimmy Strickland.

    Charles, Gloris, Rylan, Reed, I am so sorry for your lose of such a vibrant and sweet person. Like Cindy, I remember Dawn as a child around Christmas time so many years ago. She came back into my life when she and Sister (Lori) became good friends and she was such a delight. I loved to see her mind work. We all spent many an hour at my little pool having a big time cuttin' up and telling tales. Dawn will truly be missed and always loved. She was one of a kind! May God's love and wisdom guide all of you through this time and give you peace..
