AUSTIN, Dale Gloria Elizabeth Austin -
JANUARY 9, 1940 – SEPTEMBER 28, 2023
In loving memory of Dale Gloria Elizabeth Austin, born on January 9, 1940, in Orillia, Ontario, and who peacefully passed away on September 28, 2023, in Oshawa, Ontario.
Dale was a devoted mother to Glenn Davies and Lisa Sikora, and a cherished grandmother to Cassidy Babcock, Camielle Davies, and Gavin Davies.
Her legacy also includes the joy of being a proud great-grandmother to Everley, Jordyn, and Grayson Babcock, and Miriam Davies.
Predeceased by her mother, Ruby Colbourne, and her brother, Ted Colbourne, Dale is survived by her brothers Doug Colbourne and Bryan Colbourne, and her sisters Faith Lowman and Joanne McNab.
Having enjoyed a successful career in Real Estate, Dale was known for her independence and zest for life.
She embraced various hobbies, from sewing and painting to golfing, curling, Pickle Ball, and even downhill skiing. Dale, a nature enthusiast, found solace in gardening and cherished boat rides in cottage country.
Her quiet introspection and love for family and friends defined her essence. Dale's absence leaves a void that will be deeply felt by those who knew and loved her.
