Dawn Renee Chase
July 12, 1957 – June 23, 2022
On the morning of June 23, 2022, after a long courageous battle with cancer, Dawn passed away
peacefully at her home. She was born on July 12, 1957 to Donald and Nancy Chase of Tustin, WI.
She will always be remembered for her love of nature, and life, and strived to live in the moment. There
were no strangers in Dawn’s life, just friends she had yet to meet and learn their story. Chase’s favorite
days were filled with being close to nature, whether it be preparing for the hunt, observing animals in
their natural habitat, or dropping a line in the water.
The gardens she planted were large and legendary. There was always plenty to share at harvest.
Gathering with family, and friends made her heart smile.
Later in life, she discovered a love for upholstery. After some training, and experience at a local shop,
she started her own business. Chasin’ Perfection Custom Automotive Interiors, Tops and Trim was born.
The business was doing well, and Chasin’ Perfection landed a featured spot in Old Cars Magazine, after a
replacement of a convertible top on a 1984 Buick Riviera.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Nancy Chase, sister Sally Ann Fronzack, and
stepsister Marjol Arend; and her beloved pets Shack, Hannah, and Kane.
She is survived by her brothers Tom (Tammy) Chase, and Jason (Brenda) Chase; nieces Nicole (Jeremy)
Opps, Carinne Chase, and Jocelyn Chase; nephews Richard Fronzack, Christopher (Karley) Chase, Cody
(Morgan) Chase; great-niece Kylie Helm; stepmother Jan Chase, stepsiblings Gail Belling, Sharee (Terry)
Gehrman, and Troy Cronce; extended family members Vicky Knigge, Jodi Lindquist; dear friends Jennifer
Madera, and the Charlie Steinberg family.
The family would like to thank Karie (Red) Van Gompel for her compassionate care for Chase. ThedaCare
Cancer Team, and all the doctors, nurses, and hospice staff for helping Chase with her care.
A celebration of life will be announced on social media at a later date.
