She was raised on that family farm, confirmed at Ray Lutheran Church, and was graduated from Ray In Memory of High School with the Class of 1934. She went on to attend Minot Normal School where she earned and was awarded a Teaching Certificate. Through the next thirty-one years Bernice went on to teach many a student in the area, BERNICE DAHL eventually retiring in 1976. At the beginning of her teaching career, she earned $55 a month, plus $5 more for hauling water and doing janitorial work. On November 25, 1939 she married Albert Dahl in Glasgow, MT. After being married they returned to the farm south of Wildrose where they lived until 1960. They then made their home on the farm south of Ray from 1960 until they moved into Williston in the late 1970’s. Albert passed away Christmas of 1983. Continuing the tradition that she and Albert began, Bernice traveled south during the winter months to Mesa, AZ until the late 1990’s when poor eyesight necessitated her entering the Kensington. That remained her home until entering the Bethel Home a few years ago. During her life, Bernice enjoyed a wide variety of interests. She also liked to do artwork and crafts, work crossword puzzles, and had a wonderful zest for dancing. As a young lady she sang at many a local social event with her trio. In addition to her vocal abilities she also could play piano, ukelele and guitar, and served as the church pianist for many years. Upon learning that she was suffering from macular degeneration she embarked upon an incredible journey, reading over one hundred books.
