Dahrl McCain 2018
Dahrl Hill Chase McCain

Dahrl Hill Chase McCain was born in Midland, Texas, on June 19, 1953, the third child of Jack B. and Nancy Caroline Strang Chase. She arrived a joyous surprise, almost eleven years after her brother, Jon, and nine years after her sister, June. She was cherished beyond measure by the whole household: her parents, her maternal grandmother, and her siblings. Her brother and sister vied for her affection; she shared a love for fishing with her brother, and poetry with her sister. They are heartbroken that she left life so early.

As a girl, she loved horses and her participation in Girl Scouts. She treasured every opportunity to spend time surrounded by nature, whether it was catching frogs as a child in the park on A Street, hiking in far-away mountains or forest, feeding her backyard turtles, or her daily walks at UTPB, especially when wildflowers were in bloom. It was important to her to protect our planet and its resources and to preserve them for future generations.  Throughout her life, she found spirituality through interactions with the natural world and was thrilled to watch and feed neighborhood hummingbirds and squirrels, to spot an oriole, coyote, jackrabbit, pileated woodpecker, or a snowy owl lost in the desert.  Her stillness and patience encouraged encounters with wildlife.

Dahrl married Ralph McCain, her high school sweetheart, in 1972. She attended Texas Tech University and graduated from UTPB; she taught swimming and gymnastics at the Odessa YMCA and worked as an elementary-school physical education teacher in Midland and then in Odessa until her retirement.  A compassionate, consistent, calm, and soft-spoken teacher, she could be seen on the playground speaking quietly to her students, who gathered around her, straining up to her like baby birds to hear her instructions. She was effective and unshakably kind, and she stood up for children and co-workers who were disrespected by others.

Because of her gentle spirit, people who didn’t know her well sometimes thought they could take advantage of her, but they were mistaken. She had a sturdy sense of her self, of her values, and of her worth, and she acted on them.

Dahrl loved her husband, Ralph, and her children, Keiva Hill McCain Wiese and James Chase McCain, immeasurably. She was a vigilant and wise mother, focusing laser attention and energy toward her children’s wellbeing and fostering their interest in nature and play. When they were ill, she fought for them. They will miss her terribly. She also dearly loved, and was loved by, her grandchildren—Brenna, Taylor, Liam, and Max McCain, and Benjamin and Cecelia Wiese—and her son-in-law, Steven Wiese, and her daughter-in-law, Jennifer McCain and her many nieces and nephews and their children.  All of her family are heartbroken that she has left so soon.

After Dahrl’s diagnosis with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, she packed the next nine years with happy experiences, almost always accompanied by her daughter, Keiva. They hardly ever passed a state park without making a visit, taking time to “smell the roses,” as Dahrl’s mother used to advise. Along with her son-in-law, Steven, they explored in Michigan, Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and the Western and Big Bend areas of Texas, enjoying nature wherever they went. And when Dahrl decided to stop treatment, Keiva, Steven, and Ralph were there to be sure she rested comfortably and had something to enjoy—Cece’s cooing, Benji’s gentle “pat-pats,” spoonerisms, good food, her favorite music, and poetry. Family was always at her side. She died at home in a peaceful, music and family-filled room on October 30, 2018.

A celebration of Dahrl’s life will be held Sunday, November 11, 2:00 PM at the Odessa Downtown Lions Club, 1101 N. Whitaker Ave. In lieu of flowers, Dahrl requested that donations be made to Doctors Without Borders or Metivivor.org.
