November 12, 1922 - October 25, 2010

Mollie was born in Kerman, Ca., to August and Margaret Fleming and went into the arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Monday, October 25, 2010. Mollie was a Red Cross nurses' aide volunteer during WWII and later served as a nursing assistant for Fresno Community Hospital, but her greatest joy was being a mother and homemaker.

Mollie met Clayton G. Dahl, who had just been released from a WWII Japanese POW camp, and they married in 1946. They enjoyed almost 57 years of marriage. During their golden years, Mollie and Clay led worship services at Pacific Gardens Memorial Park.

Mollie's daughters would like to say a special "thank you" to Dell Ann Pringle, who was Mom's best friend, encourager and comforter during the last years of her life. And our utmost love and gratitude to niece, Patty Styer for providing Mom with loving, unconditional support during many of Mom's most difficult trials; and for being Mom's caregiver during her last days.

From Mom's favorite Psalm 71, "For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth."

Mollie was predeceased by her parents, August and Margaret Fleming; her brother, August "Gus"; her sisters, Elma Starkey and Emily Wagner; her husband, Clay; and son Clayton William "Billy".

Mollie is survived by her daughters, Sharon Dahl and her husband Doug, Linda Gilmore and her husband Jim, and Kristy Welton and her husband Paul; ten grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; many nephews; and a niece.
