29 Aug Rebecca Dahl Dwyer
A true warrior has left us to join her Maker. Rebecca (Becky) Dahl Dwyer, born November 1, 1967, died August 26, 2021. Her funeral will be held at Bismarck Funeral Home (3723 Lockport Street) on Wednesday, September 1, 2021, at 11:00 a.m., with visitation starting at 10:00 a.m. For those who cannot attend the service will be livestreamed on the Bismarck Funeral Home Facebook page.
The youngest daughter of Chris and Nonnie (Madsen) Dahl, Becky attended grade school in Bismarck, graduated from St. Mary’s High School in 1986 and continued on to graduate from Moorhead State University with a B.A. in Psychology.
When she was eight years old, Becky was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. Forging their strong bond, mom became Becky’s fiercest defender and primary caregiver. Throughout her struggles, Becky was revered by her many medical friends for her upbeat attitude and her never-ending fortitude. In 2000, Becky received a double lung transplant at the University of Wisconsin hospital.
In 2002, she married David Dwyer, making her home in Madison,WI for 12 years before returning to live in Bismarck. In the last few years, she acted as caregiver to her mom and stepdad, Albert Craychee.
Becky is survived by her siblings: Andi (Frank) Howe, Diane Garske, Chris (Joan) Dahl, Ellen (Rod) Eckroth, Claudia (Tony) Brown; stepdad “Hap” Craychee and his ten children, stepson Sam Dwyer, and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father in 1994 and her mother earlier this month.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to CFA of Bismarck.

Rest in peace beautiful sister Becky.
You are such a wonderful person and I have always seen you as one of my sisters and always will.
I am forever grateful for how you and your lovely family welcomed me and treated me as a family member
since day 1 when I spent a year as exchange student during 1984 and all the times I came back to visit you.
I love you and I will forever cherish the wonderful moments we shared together. ~Kristina Zdrilic Siljedahl with family in Malmö, Sweden
