Dawn was a relative of my husband.  She has been deceased for many years  -  probably due to complications of diabetes.  She is buried in the Gran Lutheran Church  cemetary,  rural Mayville.

Dawne Marie (Grindeland) Tucker was born June 20, 1944 to William "Bill" Grindeland and Inga (Casperson) Grindeland in Grand Forks, ND.  She died on December 27, 1972 in Great Falls, Montana.  Her father was principal of Belmont Grade School in Grand Forks for many years.

I received a phone call from Dawne's husband, Joe, the evening of Dec 25.  Joe said that Dawne had limited time and asked if I would come to Great Falls, Montana.  I arrived the next evening and Dawne's dad was also there with Joe.  The morning of Dec 27, Joe and I went to the hospital to see Dawne.  We were with her a short time and the medical staff wanted to do a procedure with her.  We left for a short time and stopped by their house.  When we arrived at the house her dad told us to return to the hospital immediately.  We got there just the last minutes of her life.  Her body was returned to Grand Forks and her funeral was in Mayville on Jan 2, the day of their wedding anniversary.  I just wanted to add that in July of 1973 we had our second daughter and named her Michele Dawne Nelson.  Dawne was a wonderful person and a wonderful friend.

Dawn Marie was one of those people who could laugh at herself, cry for others grief, make others laugh, tease and be supportive. She was warm, caring and loving. The world has been worse off since she passed. RIP dear soul.

Dawn was such a fun-loving friend who left me with wonderful memories - from just "hanging out", birthday gatherings, being in her wedding, and more.  Brian & Cheryl, Mark & Linda, and Larry & I attended her funeral. If memory serves me right, Mark sang at the funeral.

Dawn Marie was one month older than me and we grew up across the street from each other so my memories go way back.  I remember one time when she felt ill in school and had to leave.  I was so shy without her so said I also felt ill.  We went to her house and played all day.  Problem was I forgot all about leaving school early and had to fess up to my parents.  I have multiple other memories of our very young years.  She was fun and feisty and I will alwlays remember her that way.

Dawne had a wonderful zest for life.   Carolyn Paukert and I traveled with her on the train to the Seattle World's Fair the summer of 1962.   What fun we had.   She ended up trying on leather jackets in Seatlle, and bought a beautiful red leather one for herself.   I will always remember her in that jacket.   She had fun, and lived life to the fullest.

What I will always remember about Dawn was how I always secretly carried life savers for her in case she needed one for her illness.   I can remember many hours playing at her home, always welcomed so warmly and had so much fun.  She leaves me with delightful memories.  Wish I had met her husband.

The last time I saw Dawn was when my husband and I were living in Bozeman, MT.  My husband was working on his Master's at MSU, and I think it was around the summer or fall of 1971.  She called to ask if we could get together, and it was a total surprise, as I hadn't seen her since high school graduation.  What a great surprise, and what fun it was to see her again.  She was her usual joyful self and we had a wonderful visit!  She was living in Great Falls at the time, which I wasn't aware of, and I don't know how she knew I was living in Bozeman but I was so glad she got in touch with me.  I went to grade school with her, and I've always remembered her with a smile on her face and a fun-loving personality.
