The most important work Dale ever did was inside the walls of her own home. She made sure her kids and grandkids were in church every time the doors opened and prayed for them all daily. She shared her love for the Savior with her family and taught them all to recognize that the Lord is walking with us daily no matter what is going on. Pallbearers were Chris Rutherford, Michael Geoghagan, Randy Pilcher, Danny Jones, Daniel Jones, and Thomas Pilcher.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

“Farther along, we’ll know all about it

Farther along, we’ll understand why

Cheer up my brother, live in the sunshine

We’ll understand it all by and by”
