Community Gathering in Celebration of the Life of Olivia M. Dahl

Olivia Dahl

The Hardy Gallery is deeply saddened by the recent news of Olivia Dahl’s passing. Olivia was a 16-year-old senior at Gibraltar High School, who was involved in a tragic plane crash in Peninsula State Park on Sept. 18.

Olivia was a fixture in the Hardy family. Her mother, Jennifer Dahl, was a board member of our organization for eight years, which included her time as board president and treasurer. Jen was central in developing the programming of the Hardy, especially the Exposure to Creativity Program (ETC); a program that provides one-day workshops in the visual and performing arts to Gibraltar High School students. Olivia had participated in ETC for the past three years and established an interest in digital photography from her experience in the program.

Olivia’s presence and talent in the ETC Program will be profoundly missed this school year.

The Hardy Gallery will remember Olivia as a bright, beautiful and wonderful person who passed away much too young. We will miss her dearly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Dahl family during this difficult time.

A celebration of Olivia’s life will be held Sunday, Oct. 23, at the Ellison Bay Women’s Club, 11953 Hwy. 42, Ellison Bay, with a memorial service at 3 pm and a picnic at 3:30 pm.
