Also surviving are her many church friends and spiritual children, all too many to mention but all were dear to her heart. Dale loved her family with all her heart.

This grand lady passed from this earth into eternity with Jesus, having loved the Lord and all that knew her with over whelming joy and grace.

"I am so thankful that I was able to get to know Dale. I fondly remember sitting around the table at North Star with the Baumans and a crazy bunch of camp counselors. Her joy for life was contagious and her earnestness to share the love of Jesus was inspiring. She will always have a special place in my heart. "

Andrea Ross from Napervill IL

"Patti, Your mom is now enjoying the presence of Jesus. You (we)have the promise of enjoying that same presence with her. Isn't God good?! Praying for everyone - especially your dad. Such a sad time for him."

Paul R Schuldt from Frankfort IL

"So sorry for your loss - I lost track of Frank & Dale a few years ago. Please tell Frank I am so sorry for his loss. I know how hard it is, I lost June October 2011.

If some family could call my daughter Dawn 815-806-1121 - I'd like to come & see Frank if possible.

My deepest sympathy for all of Dale's family."
