Dawn was born in Springfield, Oregon, graduated from Pleasant Hill in 1967, and studied dental hygiene at Lane Community College. She married Doug Frazier in June 1970. They moved to Virginia and then to Germany, where Doug was stationed. 

They returned to Eugene, where they raised their three children. Doug’s work took them to Wenatchee, Washington, and then retired in Prineville, Oregon. Dawn was very involved with 4-H, church activities, Alzheimer’s Association, sewing/quilting, and her grandchildren. Dawn passed away at 71 after a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer. 

She was preceded in death by her daughter Rhonda and her father Kendall Kimball. She is survived by her husband Doug, children Janelle (Mike) Deedon, Justin (Melissa) Frazier, grandchildren Clay, Stephen and Elise, her mother Azalea Kimball, and brothers Fred, Claude, and Dan Kimball. A memorial will be held on Saturday, June 27 at 1 p.m. at the park on NE 4th St & NE Elm St. in Prineville.
