Dale, along with his twin sister, Deloris, was born at St. John’s hospital, Fargo, ND, on February 4, 1932, to Ole and Alvilda (Olson) Indrelie. He spent his early years in rural North Dakota, moved to southern Minnesota, and graduated from Freeborn High School in 1950. He met Margaret (Peggy) Faye Aase. Rumor has it their courtship involved lots of roller skating. They were married August 17, 1952. The couple raised four children in Manchester. They moved to Albert Lea in their later years.
Dale was employed by Wilson Supply Company of Albert Lea as a purchasing agent for many years eventually retiring at the age of 62. He also held custodial positions at the Albert Lea Medical and Surgical Center and, later, Mayo Medical Center in Albert Lea, where he finally retired at the age of 84.
