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.
