Anita A. Dahl, age 88, of Wahoo, formerly of Scribner
Died Sunday May 27, 2018 at Wahoo Long Term Care.

Anita was born August 24, 1929 on the family farm in rural Dodge County to Fred and Anna ‘Poppe’ Von Seggern. She was raised on the farm and attended country school through the 8th grade then graduated from Scribner High School. Anita married Kenneth W. Dahl on December 12, 1948 in the St. John’s Lutheran Church, Cuming County Line. After their marriage they lived and farmed southwest of Hooper until moving into Scribner.

The couple started and ran Dodge County’s first rural Bed and Breakfast called ‘The Empty Nest’, hosting visitors from many states. Anita also opened and operated ‘Nita’s Nursery Day Care’ for over 10 years. She attended many of her former day care children’s graduations and weddings over the years.

Anita was a lifetime and active member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, CCL. She was in the choir and taught Sunday and Bible school. She was also involved in the Luther League as a member then sponsor, and a member of the Ladies Aid.

You couldn’t come to “Nita’s” house without having coffee, rolls, cookies and her famous cherry bars. She was always a gracious hostess.
