age 96, died peacefully on 4/24/21 at Friendship Village in Bloomington, MN. Born in Willmar, MN, she graduated with a B.A. from the U of MN and worked as a dental hygienist until she was 75. Together with her late husband Wes, they served churches in Duluth and Minneapolis. She loved time with family and to swim, especially at Lake Vermilion. Her generosity in serving others as a loving mom, aunt & sister-in-law, a talented cook & hostess, an organizer, a friend, and a patient listener & true hearer has brought comfort to many of us. She enjoyed a Bible study with 7 close friends that lasted 30 years. Her strong faith gave her inner joy and peace, which she radiated.
She is lovingly survived by 3 children, Heidi Forsline Dahlin, Tami Forsline (Marc Hayford) & Ladd Forsline (Bernadette Ward); 3 grandchildren; 2 great-grandchildren; 9 sisters & brothers-in-law; 36 nieces, nephews & their spouses.
A Zoom memorial service will be held on her birthday, May 26 @ 7:30 PM. Preferred memorials: “Employee Appreciation Fund” at Friendship Village in Bloomington; Arrive Ministries (refugee resettlement) in Richfield; Camfed (Campaign for female education in Africa); no flowers, please.
