Born August 31, 1966 in Joliet, Dawn Marie was a daughter of Edward and Penny (Oram) Barto. She was raised and educated in Joliet and graduated from Joliet West High School with the class of 1984.

Dawn worked as a security guard for various entities and recently obtained her care giver certification to continue helping those in need. In her free time she enjoyed going fishing and watching Sons of Anarchy, Dog the Bounty Hunter and always looked forward to Shark Week.

Dawn’s pride and joy was her family, especially her grandchildren, who she was always there for and cherished every moment with.
