Dawn was born in St. Paul, MN to Carole Paul (Olmschenk) and Charles (Chuck) Paul. She graduated from North Branch High in 1983. She married Doug, her high school sweetheart on January 18th 1984. Dawn worked for Comcast for 25 years, in multiple positions retiring from the Human Resource Department in 2017. Over the years, the couple welcomed 2 children and multiple animals into their home. Her children remember her as a loving mother who encouraged them to pursue their goals and dreams. Dawn was always there for you with a smile and a hug. She was a loving wife, daughter, sister, mother, memaw (grandmother) and friend. The ocean, her grandchildren and grand-furbabies were the light of her life.

All will be welcomed to attend and celebrate Dawn’s life when we can do so in a safer manor.
