February 4, 1960 - August 7, 2018
The family of Lori Denise (Dahl) Pyle, of Minden, Nevada, would like to announce her permanent change of address. On August 7, 2018, at the age of 58, Lori took her last breath on earth and awoke in heaven in the arms of Jesus. Lori was diagnosed with ampullary cancer two years earlier. Her steadfast faith in the Lord sustained her and gave her peace. We’ll miss her greatly, but we know where she is! Lori is absent from the body and present with her Lord Jesus because all the days God ordained for her were completed (Psalm 139:16). Lori was born in Glasgow, MT on February 4, 1960 to her parents Otto and Jenamae (Johnson) Dahl. She was raised in Opheim, MT in a happy and hospitable home. Her life was full of love, laughter, and fun with family and friends. Lori was the baby in a family of six children with a 20-year age gap between the oldest and youngest. Her siblings and their spouses are: Zona Gail Atwood (husband Dick) of Melbourne, FL, Donnie Jean Dahl (deceased), Rod Dahl (wife Susan) of Roundup, MT, Allen Dahl (wife Kathy) of Missoula, MT, and Myrna DeLay (husband Bob) of Sun City West, AZ. While growing up Lori loved to read, dance, cheerlead, play card games, sew, and do a variety of crafts. She was a loving and social person with a contagious giggle who loved to laugh and tell stories. Lori was known for her own unique twist on common idioms which we affectionately call “Lorisms”. Instead of saying, “Don’t burn the CANDLE at both ends”, she would add in the idiom "Up a creek without a paddle" and say, “Don’t burn the CANOE at both ends.” In 1978 Lori met Dave Pyle, the love of her life, when they were freshmen at Montana State University in Bozeman, MT. They were married on September 3, 1982 and were best friends for 40 years. God blessed them with three wonderful children: daughter Jessie Heussler (husband Jakob) of Lake Forest, CA, daughter Katie Pyle (who went to be with the Lord before experiencing life on earth), and son Shane Pyle of Bozeman, MT. Lori taught elementary school for 12 years at Faith Christian Academy (FCA) and had a profound academic and spiritual impact on her students, parents, and staff. Lori attended Hilltop Community Church in Carson City, NV where she helped teach discipleship classes. She was a wise woman of God who developed deep caring relationships; she was a beloved friend and mentor to many women. One of Lori’s favorite quotes was that “when you go through a trial, the sovereignty of God is the pillow upon which you lay your head” (Charles Spurgeon). Lori’s “Celebration of Life” Service was held on August 11 at Hilltop Community Church. Should family and friends desire, memorial contributions may be sent to Faith Christian Academy (FCA) Scholarship Fund @ 1004 Dresslerville Rd., Gardnerville, NV 89460. (775) 265-0688.
