Susanna passed away Thursday, July 14, 2022 at St. Benedict’s Health Center in Dickinson, ND.
Susanna was born on April 26, 1919 in Dickinson, the daughter of Nicholas and Elizabeth Bartel. She attended St. Joseph’s Catholic grade School and Dickinson High School. She began working at an early age at the NYA Program during the 1930s.
It was at a country dance that she met John G. Dasovick. The two were married on November 4, 1940 at the St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Dickinson. The couple built and made their home next to Susanna’s parents, and it was here where they raised their five children. Over the years Susanna worked as a clerk at various stores in Dickinson, including Excel Cleaners, JC Penney, and Woolworths.
Sue stayed busy and enjoyed volunteering in the area schools, RSVP, Roosevelt Elementary, and various other organizations. She was a member of St. Ann’s Auxiliary, Catholic Daughters, Christian Mothers, Homemakers Club, and German Singers.
She never drove, but loved to walk wherever she needed to go. Sue was an avid reader and loved word search puzzles and bingo. She was very fond of sunflowers, trees, fashion, chocolate, and poetry. She played cards and especially loved Solitaire. She enjoyed watching Wheel of Fortune, local sports, and was always up on current events. She was a classy dressed lady whenever she went out, even during her time at St. Benedict’s. She was very faithful in her Catholic faith. Many of her fashionable outfits she sewed herself, often making clothes for her children and grandchildren. Numerous dishtowels and dishcloths were embroidered or crocheted, which are very cherished by her family.
Mom lived life to the fullest. Although widowed at age 65, she made the most of her life and remained very independent into her 103rd year. Mom was very sharp quick witted, humorous and very observant with her keen eye sight. Activities at St. Benedict’s were a must for Sue, participating in all. She participated in weekly mass. Mom was an inspiration for all who knew her.
What made Mom the happiest, were her family, her faith, and her love of life. She will be sorely missed by her family who loved her dearly.
Special thanks to St. Benedict’s Health center, activities staff and all members of unit three.
Rest in peace, Mom.
