Delores Leone “Dodie” Dahl went home to be with the Lord on June 5, 2022.

Dodie was born in Racine on Feb. 23, 1926, to Roy and Laura (nee Alvey) Andress. Following graduation from Park High School in 1944, she worked at Western Printing in the bindery. She was a member of Gospel Tabernacle where she taught Sunday school and sang in the choir. She was also a member of Lend-a-hand Marys. On Sept. 30, 1950, she was joined in marriage to John C. Dahl, a dairy farmer in the town of Norway. After marriage she became a faithful member of Raymond Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School, sang in the choir, taught Bible School, was an AWANA leader, Sunday School Superintendent, and also the President of Ladies Mission Circle.

Dodie served the community as a 4-H sewing leader, member of the Farm Bureau Women’s Club, and Homemakers. She later became a teacher’s aide at Raymond School in Franksville.

Dodie had many interests, including her love of traveling. She has been to England, France, Germany, Holland, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Italy, Greece, Egypt, the Holy Land, and many of the states. Some of her other interests were gardening, bird watching, reading, and spending time with her family that she dearly loved.

Dodie is survived by her son Howard (Pat) Dahl; grandchildren Tracey (Greg) Schaal, John Dahl, Mark (Heidi) Dahl, and Teri (Chad) Kowalski; great-grandchildren, Makenzie, Ian, Matyson, and Bayley Schaal, Clayton and Haven Dahl, and Brynlee Kowalski; and her sister Nancy Huggins.

The family would like to thank Kindred Hospice and all the caregivers and staff at Oak Park Place for all their loving care.
