On January 29, 2012 Delle Jeanette Dawson (nee Hart) passed away peacefully after a short hospitalization with family by her side at the age of 88 years.
Delle was born and raised a farm girl in Vermilion, Alberta, and her love of animals big and small never left her. She married her beloved Frank and raised her six children, and a few extras for good measure, with love, humour and kindness.
