Dawn Annette Keys Cole After Dawn graduated from the University of Missouri at Columbia, she did some globe-trotting. She lived in Beruit, Lebanon, for a while and traveled as far away as Amman, Jordan, from Greenfield. Eventually she was in Texas but for the last several years she and her family have been in Tennessee. Her family consists of husband Jerry Cole and three children. Melinda is 16, Thaddeus is 11, and Lydia is 7. Dawn's hobby is making Creative Memories scrapbooks and I am sure the children are a major inspiration for that. Probably there is also one from her and Jerry's trip to Amsterdam in 1998. That sounds so romantic.
