She met her husband, Randy Draheim, in South Carolina and they were married on Oct. 16, 1979. Due to his job in the military, they moved often, and in 1997 they made their home in Onalaska, WI. They were married for 26 years and raised 2 beautiful children, before taking separate journeys in life. Dawn loved being a stay at home mom, but would often find various part-time jobs just to get out of the house to meet new people. Her most current job was at the Dollar Tree where she worked for 18 years and was well-loved by many. Dawn was a huge movie buff and loved going to the movie theater. She loved reading, swimming, collecting comic books, and never went anywhere without her Nook. You could find her in her favorite spot of the house reading and eating her favorite foods, either fried chicken wings or movie theater popcorn. Her favorite holiday was Halloween, so she could dress up and put up decorations. She is preceded in death by her mother Barbara; siblings Keith, Cheryl, and Butch; and the love of her life, Randy. Dawn is survived by her father, Eugene Reynolds Sr.; children, Sharron (Draheim) Johnson and Brice (Danielle) Draheim; grandchildren, Chantz, Destinee, and Brayden Draheim; siblings, twin brother Darryl, Brett, and Michelle; godchildren Charles, Kim and Cecilia; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews and her sistas from other mistahs, Cheryll Burns and Manon Martinez.
