Carol Jean (Bear) Dahl was born on August 2, 1949, in Sisseton, SD, to Jonah T. and Mary (Wilson) Bear. Her maternal grandparents were Louis Wilson and Rose Trudell. Her paternal grandparents were Ida Irene Robertson and Andrew P. Bear, Sr. Carol was a descendant of two chiefs: Standing Buffalo, a hereditary chief of the Sisseton Band; and Wabasha I, a hereditary chief of the Mdewakanton.

Carol graduated from Sisseton High School in 1969. Shortly after graduation, she went to work for the United States government in Chicago, IL, as a secretary for the United States Navy. Carol later went to cooking school in Albuquerque, NM. After living in New Mexico for a time, she returned home to the Sisseton, SD, area.

On October 12, 1973, Carol was united in marriage with David A. Dahl. To this union, five children were born: Thomas, Kathryn, Brenda, Florence, and Barbara. Carol had one son, James Bear, with his father, Martin D. Bernard.

Always a hard worker, Carol worked in various industries until she retired in 2007, due to health issues. She worked for the longest time at Landsberger Foods in Sisseton before the business was purchased by Schiltz Foods. Carol also worked at Custom Polymer, Polytec, and for a short time, Fiskars in Wheaton, MN.

Carol was loved by all who knew her. Some of her favorite hobbies included: doing word finds, cross word puzzles, and expressing her artistic side in adult coloring books. Carol also enjoyed listening to Classic Rock and Contemporary music.
