A "beautiful" person. That's how most describe Dawn Marie Tienhaara Hacheney.
Others deem her an "Angel" who never did a bad thing in her life.
Dawn was considered a bit "reserved" from a young age, but that might have
stemmed from her doing all she could to be her mother's "rock and support"
after her parents separated.
During school, Dawn competes in the Scripps National Spelling bee and meets
President Ronald Regean in the Rose Garden of the White House.
Dawn is also High School Valedicorian. She's smart, a pretty "girl next
door" type who has dreams of how her life should be. But Dawn's life,
will certainly not turn out how she thought, or wanted, it to be.
AN ILL FATED MEETING
Dawn Tienhaara attended Northwest College of the Assemblies of God"
(aka Northwest Bible College) in Kirkland, Washington. That's where she
meets Nick Hacheney, who certainly isn't the best looking guy around.
He is overweight, with a receding hairline. Nick's attitude doesn't endear
him to other students, who deem him "brash, pushy, clueless, and a loser
who tries too hard."
Nick could spin a good, and believeable story, at least to some women,
one of whom, is Dawn.
1991 - April 20 - Dawn Tienhaara becomes Mrs. Dawn Hacheney.
Dawn is employed as a Loan Officer at the Kitsap Federal Credit Union, Silverdale,
Washington. She is the primary breadwinner in their household. Her life insurance
stands at $10,000.
Their family consists of two labradors, Hope and Faith. Although Dawn wants
children, Nick does not. In their household, whatever Nick wants, Nick gets.
Don Tienhaara (Dawn's father)
"I knew she wanted to be a mother, but I guess Nick had other ideas."
Those who know Dawn are appalled as well as surprised that she submerges
her needs or wants for Nick and for Nick's fundamentalist religious beliefs,
especially the tenent that she submit to her husband's sole authority.
Nick ignores Dawn's needs for whatever scheme he has going, or whatever
person he is "helping" or trying to impress.
Nick Hacheney becomes employed as a youth pastor for the Christ Community
Church on Bainbridge Island. For all of his life, Nick Hacheney and his family felt
he was "called to do what God wanted" from an early age.
"You have no idea what it is like to be handed over to God."
As he grew up, Nick's overweening belief in his calling increased. But so did
his lustful nature. Hacheney was outgoing, a hunter, a counselor, and ultimately
proven to be, a multiple philanderer.
