Four Generations of Westonka Graduates in Dahl Family Tree

Dahl Family Tree

April 26, 2018 — Sometime in the first decade of the Mound Consolidated School District, the Oscar Dahl family settled in Mound on Dahl Road in the North Arm area. Three children of the family attended Mound Consolidated High School, Raymond (1924), Carmen (1932) and Myrtice (1935).

Two of Raymond’s children graduated from Mound, JoAnne in 1952 and Ronald in 1956. Ronald married Andrea Eklof (1957), and all six of their children graduated from the district: Rick (1976), Brenda (1978), Randy (1980), Greg (1981), Jean (1984) and Brian (1988).

Rick Dahl taught and coached in the school district for 33 years and is now retired. Two of Greg’s children, Ellie (2008) and Reid (2015), graduated from what is now Westonka. Greg's other son, Evan, ends the Dahl era, graduating with the centennial class in 2018! This makes four generations of the Dahl family to graduate from Mound.

The Westonka community has many long-time residents and families who have lived here for generations. As we continue to celebrate the centennial of our consolidated school district, we would like to highlight more of our three and four (or more) generation families that may include former and current students and staff. Please send a photo or photos of groups of family members or individuals, along with your information to
