Dawn earned a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Rasmussen College Summa Cum Laude in 2014. She worked as an accountant at Hormel Foods Corporate Offices.  Dawn enjoyed crafts, camping, rendezvous, pool league, travel, live music, concert shows, and making wine.  She also loved fishing, spending quality time with family, and enjoying a cold beverage.

Dawn is survived by her parents, Marlis (Ron) Thompson and William Hallman; husband Ronald; children, Fredrick (Kristen), Brianna (Cody), Lauren (Brandon), and Lyndsey (Jesse); grandchildren, Lane and Jameson; siblings, Bill (Terrie), Ben, Johnny, and Bo; and eight nephews and one niece.

My love and prayers to all the family in this time of great loss. I had no idea that death was so imminent for Dawn. I just figured that 'take no prisoners' attitude would beat the odds. But as they say 'only the good die young'. Most of my memories of Dawn are of her and her brother Billy as children-the cutest sweetest little tow-headed kids ever!. She accomplished alot in her short life that included raising some great kids. I loved her feisty spirit. I regret I didn't get to see her again.  May she have the peace she has always deserved. Love to you all. Mizzy
