She worked as an accountant for many years and later taught accounting and business at Indiana Business College in Anderson. She married Jeffrey Evans of Anderson on July 10, 1982.

She was a swim coach in Ludington for more than 10 years and was an active volunteer on numerous committees and charitable organizations. In the communities in which she lived, it was known by all that if you needed a responsible and caring volunteer, Dawn was the go-to person.

She was also intensely interested in politics, and had visited numerous presidential libraries, national monuments, and national parks.
