On October 18, 1915 Bernice was born on the family farm at Ray, North
Dakota to Ben and Ingeborg (Kjelstad) Ingbritson. 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.

Being of Norwegian descent, Bernice also knew, spoke and wrote the
Norwegian language.

Bernice is survived by her children, June (Gerald) Peterson of Wildrose, ND
and their children, Dawn (Cary) Hawkinson of Parker, CO and their children,
Jaden and Ashlyn, Cheri Peterson of Parker, CO, and Curtis (Kristen)
Peterson of Velva, ND, and their children, Ally, Quintin, and Kinley; son,
