Dar attended school in Cottonwood, graduating with the high school class of 1968 and then went on to Mankato Commercial College.

After graduation, Dar began working in advertising at Brett’s Clothing in Mankato. In 1973 she started working at Lewis Drug before moving to Marshall in 1977 where she was employed by Woolworth’s for 8 years. Dar began her 23-year stay with the Marshall Independent newspaper in 1985. Her creativity and work with advertising accounts led to a promotion and a move to Estherville, Iowa, in 2008. She remained there for 10 years until her retirement in May 2018. Dar recently returned to Cottonwood for Hospice care and to be closer to her family as her health began to fade.

Dar and her best friend, Linda, took many trips traveling and trying their luck at the local casinos. Her enjoyments in life included shooting pool, buying clothes, collecting jewelry, baking, cooking, embroidery and visiting family every chance she could.
