Jane Lillian Forde, Age 79, of Carrington, went to her heavenly home on Sunday, June 21, 2020, at Golden Acres Manor in Carrington, ND.
Jane Lillian Dahl was born November 26, 1940, in McVille, ND. She was one of five children to Algernon & Vivian (Willis) Dahl. Jane attended school in Tolna.
She was united in marriage to Lyle Glenn Forde on June 1, 1958, in Sigdal Lutheran Church. They were blessed with four daughters; Tamy, Lois, Teresa, and Jessie.
Jane wore many hats throughout her years; she worked at the NDSSS Cafeteria, the Rolette Hospital, and was an NDSU Lab Tech for twenty-two years. In 1966, Jane and Lyle became the proud owners of J&L Sales in Carrington, until Lyle retired in 2000.
She enjoyed nalbinding and working on prayer shawls, as well as working outside on her flowers and lawn. Jane loved the outdoors and wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to go camping, fishing, or deer hunting. She shared a passion with Lyle for flying in his airplane and enjoyed the adventures they went on. She treasured the time she spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and often teased about going back to work with her granddaughter at NDSU as her boss from March to May of each year.

Jane will be missed by so many. I remember her from when I was in high school…a long, long time ago. I was gone for quite a few years and when I moved back in the ’90s I was so pleased to see her again. She was always so pleasant to visit with. She was “genuine”. God’s Blessings to all of you and may good memories bring you peace.

What a beautiful woman!!!! A heart of gold! She will be missed!
I had the pleasure of working with Jane throughout her career at the NDSU Carrington Research Extension Center. Jane was a wonderful, kind and pleasant person to be around. Her positive demeanor and caring personality made it easy to both work with her and to entrust her with the many students she supervised in the laboratory over the years. Her dedication to her job meant that farmers and industry often received the research results sooner than they might have expected. To all her family, Jane was a special person.
So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. She really was a sweetheart, always pleasant to visit with when I ran into her. Blessings.
My condolences to the family during this difficult time.
Jessie and family, so sad to hear of your loss. Our prayers will be with you through this hard time.

So sorry to hear of Jane’s passing. I remember her from Tolna High as I was a pal of her sister, Sally. Lyle was my cousin so our paths crossed a few times, but I lived out of state and didn’t get back home very often. I always remember her as a sweet, lovely person. You all have my sincere sympathy.
Sorry to hear about Janes passing.
