Dawson Team Members

Penny Cunningham joined the staff in 2015 and brings with her a great understanding of the Dawson philosophy.  Her duties in the front office include but are not limited to receiving of guests, coordinating death certificate information, newspaper release details and assists in planning daily activities.  In addition, she is most often the voice responding to all telephone calls.  Bob Adkins assists with other offices duties, including the distribution of death certificates as well as insurance related claim work processing.

Two key associates, who work across West Fifth Street at the Dawson Family Center, are Cynthia Fisher, administrative assistant to Jim Dunlap with the company’s award winning Pre-Arrangement Department, and Roberta Pennybaker.  A former newspaper executive with some 35-years of business and public relations experience, Roberta serves in a variety of capacities, including that of special assistant to Frank Dawson and as member of the company’s Board of Directors.
