Dow trained as a schoolteacher, and taught in the former town of Manchester, South Dakota, seven miles west of De Smet, South Dakota, where her family had settled. (Manchester was obliterated by an F4 tornado on June 24, 2003, and was not rebuilt.) On October 16, 1901, she married Nathan William Dow in the parlor of her parents' home in De Smet. The couple had no children.
Aside from being a farm wife, she dabbled in journalism like her older sister Carrie, acting as a stringer for several local newspapers later in her life. After her parents' deaths, she took care of her eldest sister Mary, who was blind.
Dow died of complications from diabetes in Manchester, South Dakota on November 10, 1941, aged 64. Diabetes ran in the Ingalls family and Laura, Carrie, and Grace all eventually died from complications of the disease. Dow was the first of the Ingalls siblings to succumb to the ailment. She was buried at De Smet Cemetery.
Dow was portrayed in the television adaptations of Little House on the Prairie by:some unknown baby/babies at first and then twins Wendi and Brenda Turnbaugh in the television series Little House on the Prairie and its movie sequel Little House Years
