She graduated from San Francisco State University in 1955.

Her first teaching assignment was in Ketchikan, where she met and married Wallace Dohm, the cousin of Jimmy Diamond.

The couple later moved to Everett, Washington, and she continued her teaching career in the Everett School District.

She earned her master’s degree from Seattle University and finished her career as a reading specialist for the Everett district.

Mrs. Dohm is survived by several cousins in Finland.

A memorial was held at Lake Stevens.
