TOMA, Dale Lynn September 30, 1965 – May 12, 2024 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Dale Lynn Toma of Willingdon, Alberta on Sunday, May 12, 2024. Left to hold dear her memory are, her buddy Jesse; sister and brother-in-law Jackie Toma and Bob Dushenski of Beaumont/Willingdon along with their daughter Felicia, husband Justin Tidd and family of Hurricane West Virginia, sister Andrea, husband Peter Tombrowski and family of Calgary; Dale is also survived by numerous family members and a large community of Friends. Dale is predeceased by her mom MaryLou Toma; sister Terry Lynn Toma; and Dad Andy Toma. She was born in Edmonton in the cab of the truck on September 30, 1965, Dale was challenged after an accident at home at the age of two years which left her with brain damage. Dale never let her handicap define her. Mom ensured that Dale had as normal of a life as she could, attending school first in Hairy Hill and completing her education in Two Hills, where she received a special graduation diploma. After school Dale lived on the farm in Hairy Hill and then years later Mom and Dale settled into a life of two, moving to Willingdon and starting a fresh beginning. They both enjoyed the animals, the chickens, the gardening, and content with rural life. When mom was diagnosed with her cancer in 2019, mom and Dale moved to the Willingdon Eagle Hill Lodge. Mom only had a very short stay of 1 month before she passed. Dale enjoyed living there until her passing. She was an active resident of the lodge. Making many friends with the residents, staff, and family of the residents as well. Dale would be cheerful, cranky, quiet, loud. She also helped where she could, becoming a beloved resident of the lodge. We wish to acknowledge Eagle Hill Lodge for giving Dale a home full of love, home care nurses who assisted in keeping Dale comfortable, Royal Alexandra Hospital Diagnostics/ultrasound for becoming friends as Dale was there for her weekly drains for the past year and a half, Dr Satar who regularly visited the lodge and kept Dale’s medical needs a priority, palliative nurse Michelle, what a beautiful angel she is guiding me as Dale’s caregiver and sister, we cried and we laughed, Michelle was the very best when speaking with Dale. Thank you to the nursing staff at Two Hills Hospital (Palliative Suite) who allowed me to be just a sister and not a caregiver during her last week. A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, May 20, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. at the Willingdon and District Recreation Centre with Very Rev. Fr. Mircea Panciuk and Fr. Gheorghe Petrovan officiating. Interment to follow in the St. Mary’s Romanian Orthodox Church of Boian.
