Tyrell Fauske, son of Russell (’64) and Glenda, was Diagnosed with a Brain Tumor.
Posted by Glenda Fauske:  Dunseith, ND

Life’s journey is filled with many exciting twists and a few unwelcome turns.  Tyrell recently took a turn for the worst…he has been diagnosed with a brain tumor in a precarious location along a major blood vessel.

Please pray for a  full recovery, and ask God to give him, his family, and us strength, comfort, and peace as we travel this road together.  He will have surgery on June 13 at Rssentia in Fargo.  We will try to keep you informed as things proceed.  The August 6 concert in Bottineau is cancelled.

Anyone wishing to send some encouraging words can mail them to:  Tyrell Fauske. 3202 45th Ave S, Fargo ND 58104.  If you have questions, please contact Russell (263-1746) or Glenda (263-5653) via cell or text.

Gary’s Comment:
Russell and Glenda, our hearts go out to you, Russell and the rest of your family with this sad news. On the plus side, they have made great strides with advancements with these procedures in the last years. A friend of ours, about 6 months ago, had a very large tumor removed from his brain, here in Cebu, with nearly 100% success. He returned to normal very quickly following the operation. Please keep us posted.


Dunseith Alumni dinner at Dales, this Sunday, May 28th At Dale’s
Posted by Don Martel (Former DHS Principal):   Rosemount, MN

Some of the class of 1958 and friends have been gathering at Dales for Sunday (May 28th) noon’s dinner for the past several years, on Memorial Day weekend. Granted the group is getting smaller, but we’ll keep on as long as anyone shows up. Ellen Graff Myrick, Rodney Armentrout and Colleen Conroy Martel will be there for sure. We would enjoy seeing anyone else that would like to join us.

P.S. Gary I realize this is maybe a little late getting to you. If you can post it good, if not we tried. Don Martel


Neva Haagenson Rainy (’56) and Arline Lamoreaux Dailly’s (’55) Passing
Posted by Janice Lenard Workman: (’56)  Auburn, WA

I don’t know if anybody has sent in notifications of Neva Haagenson Rainy’s passing this month (April) and Arline Lamoreaux Dailly’s passing in February.  Both were good friends from high school and I will miss them both.  Bob Dailly lives relatively close and see him for lunch occasionally.    When Kenny Hill would visit Neva, he would sometimes call me and we could all have a short visit.  I visited with Neva in November when I was back for my brother John’s funeral, and she looked really good.  Arline has been in an Alzheimer’s facility for several years, so sad.  Don Conroy and DuWayne Lang both have birthdays on April 22, Happy Birthday, guys!

 Gary’s Comments,
I remember posting Arline’s Obituary. Vickie Metcalfe has sent me Neva’s Obit pasted below.

 Janice, it’s great hearing from you too. It’s been a long time that we have not heard from you. We hope all is well with you too.



 Neva Haagenson Rainy’s Obituary (DHS ’56)
Posted by Vickie Metcalfe (70):  Bottineau, ND

Neva Haagenson Rainy
Haagenson, Neva

Neva Marie Erma Rainey, age 83 of Dunseith, passed away on Saturday, April 1, 2023 at a Bottineau nursing home.

Neva was born on August 5, 1939, in Bottineau, North Dakota. She attended Willow Creek Elementary, Dunseith High School and Minot College. In 1961, she married Ronald (John) Rainey, and together they had three children, Reed, Andra, and Kole. They divorced in 1983. Neva then reunited with her soul mate, Kenny Hill, with whom she joyously shared the rest of her life. Neva was a tireless provider who worked multiple jobs throughout her life, often two at once.

She fiercely loved her children, Kenny, grandchildren, her Lord, animals, the outdoors, and farm life. A fiery soul, Neva stood staunchly for her convictions and loved to play cards, ride horses, laugh, and cook for others. She will be heartbreakingly missed.

Neva is survived by her children, Kenny Hill, and her brother, Norman Haagenson.

She was preceded in death by her parents Erma and Willard Haagenson, and brother Raymond.

A memorial service will be held at the Peace Lutheran Church in Dunseith on Saturday, April 29, 2023 at 11:00 am. Lunch will be served immediately following at the church.

Arrangements were with Nero Funeral Home in Bottineau.  Friends may sign the online register book at www.nerofuneralhome.net.

Hi Gary and all

I am attaching a copy of my Uncle Delbert Larson’s obituary. We are going to be in Bullhead City next week for his memorial service. He is the last of my grandfather  Mensvil Larson’s 3 sons, and was the youngest of the boys.
