Margaret Ann 'Peggy' (Cookson) Dahl

Margaret Ann “Peggy” Dahl, age 68, passed away Saturday evening April 3, 2010, at Froedtert Lutheran Memorial Hospital in Milwaukee.  Margaret was born in Williston, ND, October 17, 1941 daughter of the late Thomas and Rosella (nee: Rohrenbach) Cookson.

On April 4, 1964, Peggy was united in marriage to Kermit L Dahl at Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Poplar, Montana, and moved to Racine shortly thereafter.  She was a school teacher for over thirty years until she retired from St. Sebastian’s Parochial School.  She had previously taught in Montana and at Sacred Heart School in Racine.  Peggy was an active member of St. Edward’s Catholic Church.  She enjoyed playing cribbage, spending time with friends at SCORES and her annual trips to northeastern Montana.  Above all, she loved her time spent with her family, especially with her grandchildren cooking fudge, cookies and desserts.  Peggy will be dearly missed.

Survivors include her husband of forty-six years, Kermit; her children, Kim (Robin) Dahl, Kara (Rich) Shawhan;  grandchildren, Kaitlyn, Cody, and Lauren Shawhan, Robert and Andrew Dahl;  sister, Jeanne French of Plentywood, MT;  brother, Jack (Patty) Cookson of Butte, MT; sister-in-law, Ginny Dahl of Sturtevant;  nieces, nephews, other relatives and dear friends.  In addition to her parents, Peggy was also preceded in death by her infant daughter, Kelly; her brothers, Tom and Dick; and her sisters, Mary Mae and Katherine Rae.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at St. Edward’s Catholic Church, 1401 Grove Ave., on Friday, April 9, 2010, at 11 a.m. with Rev. Allen Bratkowski officiating.  Private interment will be held.  Relatives and friends may meet with the family at the funeral home Thursday from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. and at the church Friday from 10 a.m. until time of Mass at 11 a.m.  Memorials to one’s favorite charity have been suggested.
