Marjorie “Margie” Esther Schlinsog was born on March 5, 1952 to Emil A. and Lorraine (nee Lucht) Schlinsog. She was raised on the family farm and attended Roder School until the age of 10 and then attended Granton Area Schools from which she graduated in 1970. Margie then attended the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. She married Gary L. Dahl of Granton on June 21, 1975 and continued to teach 3rd grade at Granton Area Schools for 5 years until she started her family and then continued substitute teaching for Granton Area Schools throughout the years. Margie, with her husband, bought and returned to the family farm in 1977 and resided there dairy farming, until the time of her passing.
Margie was very active in the community as a 4-H leader for many projects and in her church where she started playing the organ at age 12 and then continued to be the church organist for over 40 years until the time of her illness. She held various church leadership roles and was the Sunday School Supernatant for many years, teaching the children of the church in Sunday School and Vacation Bible School during the summers.
Margie also enjoyed traveling to see her family around Wisconsin as well as traveling with her family many places such as Walt Disney World, Jamaica, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland and France. One of her favorite trips was to the Rocky Mountains when her children were young. She was an exceptional cookie maker and made tons of baked goodies for everyone. She also enjoyed reading lots of books, theatrical performances, Chinese food, concerts like Paul McCartney, and baby kittens but not chickens.
