Dorothy Dahl, 59, of Streeter, ND died of cancer on Monday, March 30, 2015, surrounded by her family and loved ones in Fargo under the care of Hospice.

They moved to Washburn, ND, and then Gackle, ND where she graduated from high school in 1973.

She and Dan Dahl were married July 8, 1977 in Gackle, and they made their home southwest of Streeter where they operated the feedlot for Dahl Land and Cattle LLP, and raised three wonderful sons.
Dorothy's passion for serving God and helping others was evident her entire life. She was employed by the Wishek Retirement Home, Central Valley Health and the Wishek Hospital. She was also a member of the South Central Human Service Center Advisory Group.
Dorothy loved Jesus, her church family at Temple Baptist where she enjoyed playing piano and keyboard, and the many young piano students who allowed her to be part of their lives.
