It is with a sincere spirit of reverence that we announce the quiet passing of our dearly beloved Gloria Jean Dalli, age 84, on March 14th, 2022. She was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada and had the opportunity to return to her homeland this past summer. Cardston became her home twenty-eight years ago along with her dear friends, Elfriede Schaaf and Ruth Baur, where she continued to foster a legacy of hope for all who knew her. She travelled to many different countries. Her world tour with Elfriede was a memory of a lifetime. Her service for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was paramount. She fulfilled every calling given her including missions, temple service, and Institute Instructor, to mention a few. These acts of selfless love gave her great joy and peace. Her love of the Saviour, Jesus Christ was crystal clear.
