We never know when it is time until we get called to heaven. It is a sad time and a good time. It brings family together to share times and memories, surrounded by love.
Margaret Joan “Olson” Dale of Taylors Falls, MN was born on November 20, 1932 to George and Frances Olson. Margaret graduated from Taylors Falls School in 1950. Margaret was united in marriage to Cecil Lloyd Dale on November 24, 1950. To this union, three children were born, Barry, Krys, and Shelley.
Margaret worked at St. Croix Hospital for 12 years as a Nurses Aid. She then worked side by side with Cecil at the St. Croix Bakery and Poppy’s Pastry, which they owned until their retirement.
Margaret enjoyed traveling. Every fall she would travel with Cecil to a new destination. Through the years, this love of travel spread to new generations and she was able to share these adventures with four generations of family. Every road trip consisted of her paging through travel books to find some obscure monument or “world’s largest something.” She had a contagious laugh and, “Oh Mercy” what a time she had.
Margaret had a love for quilting, sewing, and embroidery. She was abundant in her talent and gifted many quilts and embroidered towels to family. Her favorite pasttime was watching the Minnesota Twins, especially Harmon Killebrew. She enjoyed many trips to Hinckley Casino for “wild rice soup.” She loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Margaret was preceded in death by her husband Cecil, father George, mother Frances, and son-in-law Bob.
She is survived by her three children; Barry (Susan) of Delavan, WI, Krys of Taylors Falls, MN, and Shelley (Cliff) of Dresser, WI; grandchildren, Bobby (Vangie), Teresa, Kelly (Brett), Shauna (Pete), and Dana; Great-grandchildren, Coby, Eddie, Callie, Emma, Shekinah, Addison, and Jackson; sisters, nieces, and nephews.
