Dale approached life with an energetic, kind, and bright outlook.

She will be deeply missed by all of those who were fortunate enough to know and love her.
Dale had a passion and talent for painting and would attend art classes here at home and around the Maritimes. She proudly exhibited her artwork with the Turps Painting Club.

Dale loved to travel and among her many interests she would attend plays and operas in New York or spend time listening to Pavarotti. She and Bill enjoyed spending winters in Florida and trips to Europe and the Caribbean.
