LaVay F. Dahlinger Obituary
Dahlinger, LaVay F.

LaVay F. Dahlinger, God received one of his greatest angels on January 15, 2017. LaVay F. Dahlinger passed away in a local hospital. LaVay was born in Maxwell, NE on January 19, 1942, to Lawrence and Adeline Miller. She graduated as Valedictorian for her class at Maxwell High School.

LaVay worked at the telephone company after graduation. Soon after, she met Donald Dahlinger and they were married on October 8, 1961. God blessed them with three children, Rod (Gina) Dahlinger of Monroe WA, Shannon (John) Patrone, and Kent (Cecelia) Dahlinger, all of Albuquerque. They blessed her with 17 grandchildren, Taryn (Steven) Bertetto, Keaton, Austin, Brandi Jo, McKenna, Justus, Rafe, Cameron, Talen, Keeley, McKenzie, Melody, Tyla, Naomi, Jacelyn, Nyla; and one great-grandchild, Landon. LaVay's children and grandchildren were her pride and joy.

LaVay mastered many talents; her favorite was serving the church. She also loved watching her grandchildren in their many different passions. LaVay worked at Thomas Lehman Chiropractic and Dr. Eric Hadady for the past 28 years, where she became a friend, comforter, and healer to those she served. LaVay will be dearly missed and her love will continue to be felt by the many lives she touched.

The family will greet friends and family one hour prior to the Memorial Service to be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at Faith Lutheran Church, 10000 Spain Road NE. In lieu of flowers, a donation in LaVay's memory can be made to the Wounded Warriors Project, P.O. Box 758516, Topeka, KS 66675. Please visit our online guestbook for LaVay at
