Dahline grew up with her four sisters and one little brother in Norfolk. Their family home was always full of family and friends; Dahline’s childhood was spent playing at Norfolk City Park ice skating, listening to music, lots of dancing and hanging out with friends who became life long friends. She graduated from Maury High School, has fond memories of high school days hanging out at Doumars after football games and on the weekends. After graduation, she married and started a family. She has a daughter and a son. She loved being a “momma”, just loved her family. Dahline enjoyed crabbing and fishing with her momma and two children in the summer months at the “old Rudees Inlet”. Her favorite was going shopping especially with her sisters around Christmas. She loved “Christmas” listening to Elvis Presley always. Her love for animals was from her parents for they loved all animals. She loved her beach days “sun bathing” with friends.
Dahline faced many challenges in her life. She lived in Norfolk and Virginia Beach. The past eight years were not good with dementia then breast and lymph node cancer. Dahline spent her last few years with her daughter, her husband and their four children, two dogs and three cats in Virginia Beach.
She showed courage, faith and grace with her illness. She will be missed every day and always remembered for her great love of family, dear friends and all animals.
