Dale Lynn Dawson

November 21, 1950 - June 17, 2023

Dale Lynn Dawson, age 72, of Sun City Center, FL, passed away on Saturday, June 17, 2023.

Born in in Salem, NJ on November 21, 1950, she was the daughter of the late Raymond H. and Emma J. Rinnier. Dale graduated from Pennsville High School in 1969 and worked at Hope Creek Nuclear Reactor for a few years. She then began her career with Matlack Trucking retiring as the Director of Human Resources. Following retirement, Dale began a crafting business, “Magic Under Glass”, creating beautiful jewelry using dichroic glass.

Deciding they needed to get away from the cold weather, Dale and her husband, Wayne, relocated to sunny (humid) Florida. She immediately became a Bingo fan, often playing four nights a week! Dale went on several Bingo cruises and always came home a winner. Anyone who met her was captivated by her beautiful and sincere smile, and her warm and caring personality.

In addition to her parents, Dale was preceded in death by her brother, Raymond Jr. She is survived by her husband, Wayne; brothers, David and Donald (Cindy); sons, Robert (Rebekah), Gregory (Cathy) and Christopher; grandson, Dylan; and stepsons, Keith and Christopher (Lori).

Interment will be held at 11 am on Monday, July 3, 2023, in Hickory Grove Cemetery, Port Penn Road, Port Penn, DE.
