Darlyne G. Dahl

April 04, 1947 - March 11, 2017


Darlyne G. Dahl, 69, Dilworth, MN formerly Fargo, ND passed away gracefully Saturday, March 11, 2017 at her home under the care of Hospice of the Red River Valley after battling ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease).

Darlyne was born April 4, 1947 in Drayton, North Dakota to Frank and Minnie Kasprick. She graduated from Sacred Heart High School, East Grand Forks, MN and then attended Aaker’s Business College. She started her career at Community National Bank in Grand Forks, ND. Later, she worked at American Crystal Sugar in Hillsboro for more than 30 years.  She married Phil Dahl on August 5, 1967 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, East Grand Forks, MN.  They spent the first years of their marriage in Detroit Lakes, MN where their daughter Deana was born and then moved to Mayville, ND where they had their son Jeff.  In 1987 they moved from Mayville to Fargo, ND, which has been their home since.

She spent her time raising a family and enjoying life despite many challenges she was faced with. She was a beautiful, strong, and incredibly hard-working woman. She set an example of God’s grace and beauty for others to see. She was a wonderful cook and a meticulous housekeeper. She enjoyed time at the lake, getting together with family, listening to music, shopping, dining out, and having coffee with dessert. She loved watching her grandkids participate in their activities and spending time with them, especially biking and playing at Lindenwood Park in Fargo.  She was very proud of each of them and loved them dearly.

Darlyne is survived by her husband of 49 years, Phil, Dilworth, MN; son, Jeff (Chris) Dahl, Dilworth, MN; grandchildren, Matthew, Sarah, Ryan, Magnolia and Summer; grand-puppy, Mollie; sisters, Elaine Koenen, Fargo, ND, Lorraine (Richard) Deschene, Argyle, MN, Diane (Norb) Bravo, Sioux City, IA and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter; Deana, sisters; Stephany Neil, Eleanor Gust and brother; Ernest “Sonny” Kasprick.

    She was a beautiful women both inside and out. She really loved to take “her girls ” out for tea and dessert, yet she always made better desserts than anyone ! She was a person where the Holy Spirit seemed to just shine out of her soul. She loved her family with every thing her heart had to hold, as they did her. She is going to be missed by many but never forgotten. We’ll see each other sooner than you think and I look forward to that meeting at the gates of the home of Our Lord and Saviour. We really love you Phil and family….you guys were always fun to be with and I always enjoyed evey moment we spent as in-laws and particularly friends. My daughter was very fortunate to have you two as parents. May God surround you with his love, peace and the promise of an everlasting life with him.

    Darlyne was such a beautiful person; she had such a kind and special way about her. I knew her from many years at American Crystal, where everyone that knew her loved her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones. God’s peace be with you.


    I went to Aaker’s Business College the same time as Darlyne and was able to have some of the same classes. She was always fun to be around, and am very happy to be able to say that I knew her. It sounds like she continued her life as I would have expected. Finally I say, REMEMBER ONLY THE GOOD TIMES.

    Dear Dahl Family,

    My thoughts are prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. I remember babysitting your kids along with Steve and Margaret’s kids. They were a fun bunch of little people!
    The obituary was more than correct in saying “Darlyne kept an immaculate home”-I think we could have eaten off the floors. She was always smiling and had kind words for all.
    God Bless her memory.

    To Phil and Family,
    Our thoughts, strength, prayers and love go out to you and your entire family, at this most difficult time.

    It was an honor to care for, and know, Darlyne.

  13. Daniel Bryant says:

    Jeff, I remember the first time I came to your home and met your mom when we were just kids. She was such a kind, caring, and gentle person, and so warm and welcoming. It is obvious the role she played in passing on those same qualities to you and her grandchildren.

    We are very sorry for your family’s loss and want you to know that we are thinking about you and praying for you all.

    Dan & Kari Bryant Family

    Phil & family,

    Just recently found this obituary for Darlyne. So sorry for your loss Phil. Darlyne was a roommate of mine from years ago. We went to Aakers Business College together around the same time. She was a charmer and I was stunned to find out about her passing. We had always meant to get to Fargo and visit but time got away from us as it so frequently does.
