Dawn was born in Cedar City, Utah and grew up in Enterprise, Utah. She was the proud daughter of a farmer and loved Southern Utah very much. She grew up surrounded by many cousins and friends. She married Demoine Wiley Jones, later divorced. She and her three children moved to St. George where she later met Danny. They moved their family to West Valley City, Utah and had their fourth child. They were married for 52 years and she was the loving and supportive wife of a Highway Patrolman for 35 of those years. She loved her children and grandchildren very much. She was proud of all of them and when speaking to others, she would rather talk about them than herself.

She loved reading any kind of book, not electronic books, real books. She loved biographies, fiction, real crime, horror and romance novels. She loved needlepoint and completed some beautiful pieces which she shared freely with her loved ones. In the last few years, she became hooked on Food Network and started cooking new and interesting dishes. She loved gardening and the beauty of flowers. She was able to grow beautiful orchids and always had an immaculate yard with lots of flowers. She loved Coke, regular Coke, never diet. If a restaurant had Pepsi products, she would turn up her nose and refuse to drink anything but water. Often, she would have a Coke in her purse for just an occasion. She also loved Lays chips and would buy fresh bags constantly because they would go stale for her very quickly.

She volunteered for the Foster Care Citizen Review Board for several years. She would review Foster Care cases and make recommendations to the Judge about the plan for the children. She worked in the insurance field and for Kennecott while the smokestack was being built. She worked for Fleming Foods in the accounting department. She also helped raise her grandchildren, which she enjoyed very much.

Burial will be held on Wednesday, September 23, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at the Utah Veterans Cemetery & Memorial Park, 17111 South Camp Williams Road, Bluffdale, Utah. There will be a program where loved ones will be able to remember her and share their thoughts. Please remember to wear masks and adhere to Social Distancing Guidelines.

Please share any stories or well wishes on the Larkin Mortuary Website Condolence section located under the Obituary link. In lieu of flowers, please donate to the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge. She fought lung cancer and was in remission for almost two years. It would make her happy to know that a cancer patient would be helped in their time of need because of a donation made in her name.


Dear family, I can't believe you are all having to say goodbye to Dawn so quickly after Dan's passing! My heart and my prayers are with all of you. It's very painful, yet almost poetic, that Dawn has joined Dan so soon after his passing. I love you all. Aunt Norma

Dawn and I were best friends when our children were small. I truly appreciate Todd letting me know of her passing. Condolences to all. Her obituary was beautiful and I felt like it helped us catch up after all these years.

Chris, Morgan, and all Dawn's Family, We're sorry for your loss. Your mom is a good woman that worried about the family and did her best to raise her children with love and by a good example. They're together again with very little time apart. Sad for us but great for them. Your dad probably needed some discipline and guidance up there so your mom went to help. We love you and are thinking of you. All our best. The Lovendales
