According to legal documents, the actress, known for playing Mary Ann Summers on the '60s sitcom, had "no property or monetary estate" at the time of her death. She did, however, have personal items that she requested be divided between those closest to her.

Dawn's will was last dated January 28, 2015. The star died in December due to complications from Covid-19. She was 82 years old.
