Delia Senior News
Delia residents who lived here a few years ago will remember Margaret and Dave Kinniburgh. Sadly, we have learned that Margaret passed away on January 13 in Lethbridge. Services for Margaret were held at the Airdrie United Church on Wednesday, January 18. Margaret was predeceased by her husband, “Pastor Dave” some years ago. They were wonderful people and dearly missed when they left Delia several years ago. Condolences to Margaret’s family and many dear friends.
Sincere sympathy of the community also goes out to Norlene Hudgeon and family on the loss of her brother, Manley Thomson.
