Serving Proudly As The Voice Of Valley County Since 1913

Fay Dahl

Fay Dahl, our beautiful, loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, 90, gained her angel wings on Wednesday, March 6, at Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital, Glasgow, Mont., with her loving family by her side.

Fay was very fortunate to be able to stay in her own home until close to her death. This was due to her youngest daughter, Candy, coming back to Glasgow eight years ago to stay with her and give her help when she needed it. Under Candy's loving care, she was able to stay in her home that long.

Visitation will be Thursday, March 14, at Bell Mortuary, 701 2nd Ave S, Glasgow, from 5 to 7 p.m.

Funeral service will be Friday, March 15, at First Lutheran Church, 621 2nd Ave. N, Glasgow, at 11 a.m. with Pastor Scott Kiehn officiating and a private family burial to follow at the Highland Cemetery in Glasgow.

A reception will be held at 12:30 p.m. at the VFW, 1222 US Hwy 2, Glasgow.

Fay was born Nov. 1, 1933, in Enderlin, N.D., to Marvin and Olga Lindemann. She was baptized May 26, 1934, by Pastor Lutness in the Lutheran church in Enderlin.

She married Norman Dahl in February of 1953 in Fargo, N.D. They were married for 49 wonderful years. The family had lived in Enderlin, Harvey, N.D. and Langdon, N.D., before coming to Glasgow in 1964. She worked for Red Owl Stores in Enderlin for five years and for Gordon's Foods for 36 years. She also worked for Eugene's for two years. She was a Member of Faith Lutheran Church since 1965. She was also a life member of the VFW Auxiliary.

Her family and grandchildren were very important to her, as well as her day care kids. In their retirement years, Fay and Norm enjoyed making trips to go visit their grandchildren, which took them to Great Falls, Mont., Colorado, Kalispell, Mont., and Arizona.

Fay enjoyed, gardening, her flowers, going to church, visiting, cooking and baking (which she was excellent at). Her homemade bread, buns and lefse were the absolute best!

Fay has 12 Great-grandchildren and one great-great granddaughter. A special mention as well of Rae Lynn Komrosky Harris, who Fay was a very proud and loving Godmother to.
