The following was written by her four nieces:
”Dagny’s generosity went on throughout her entire life, especially when it came to helping others. Whether it was teaching her nieces and nephews games, childhood songs she sang with her sisters or life lessons, her patience and kindness did not falter. She did not let us quit. Her storytelling and quick wit was sure to keep anyone laughing. She was also one to not mince words or beat around the bush, especially when we required a bit of direction. We could always count on her honest and sincere nature. Even though we can’t hug you anymore, you will always be in our hearts. No matter where you go, we know that you will be fine ... “because you have your master’s.” We love you! Till we meet again.
