Don Quentin Dalley Obituary

Colaborador: Bradon Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Don Q. Dalley, 85, of Smithfield passed away at his home on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2005, after a brief illness. He was born March 17, 1920, in Sugar City, Idaho, the fifth of 11 children, to Abram and Stella Dalley. The family later moved to Dayton, Idaho. Don attended school in Preston and Weston where he was elected studentbody president. He married Ione Rich on Feb. 11, 1942, in the Logan LDS Temple. She died Nov. 20, 1974. He married Cleone Petersen on June 6, 1975, in the Logan LDS Temple. Don served in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, serving in many callings including bishop, high council, temple officiator and home teacher. One of his more unique accomplishments was serving in the West Central States LDS Mission with a young family at home and later attending Utah State University, receiving his bachelor of science degree in English. Don was also civic-minded, serving on Dayton and Smithfield city councils, Smithfield Library Board and was a member of the Lions Club. He loved the Lord, he loved the land and he loved people, parades and propeller-driven aircraft. But most of all, he loved his family. He was a farmer and a master teacher, loved and revered by his students. Don loved the classics of literature, teaching classes in novels and short stories at Sky View High School. He and Cleone researched, wrote and published a history of his beloved Dayton entitled, "The Hills of Home." Whether nurturing young seeds or young minds, he gave it his all. Don was a warm, friendly man with a terrific sense of humor. He enlivened things wherever he went and people loved him. He was an avid reader, especially of history, and his interest in aircraft resulted in his immeasurable fondness of books on World Wars I and II. He could identify any plane that flew in those wars. Survivors include his wife, Cleone of Smithfield; his children, Carol Child, Brent Dalley, Brenda Schvaneveldt, Alan Dalley and their spouses; his stepchildren, Lynn Sanduk, Kris Foltz, Karen Johnson, Robert Petersen, Dave Petersen, Doug Petersen and their spouses; and his siblings, MarDean Ririe, Stella Manning and Frank Dalley. Don has 30 grandchildren and 31 great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8, at the Smithfield 16th Ward chapel, 625 E. 600 South. A viewing will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 7, at Nelson Funeral Home, 85 S. Main, Smithfield, and from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Saturday at the church, prior to services. Burial will be in the Smithfield City Cemetery. Military honors will be provided by the Smithfield American Legion. Condolences may be extended to the family online at *************************. The family wishes to express their appreciation to Dr. Salisbury, to Callie and Gina of Hospice and to Bishop Kyle Griffiths for their comfort and care. We love you, Dad, you are our hero. We say, "Good night sweet prince ... sleep well." God bless you!

Hay Season in Dayton

Colaborador: Bradon Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

This is a picture of Abe and Don Dalley during haying season, with horses, Flossy and Cap, whose task it was to pull the hay wagon. Standing next to Abe is Net, the derrick horse who must have been some horse as there are many family stories about her. Uncle Don is on the wagon. The barn is in the background and you can see the rabbit hutch beside it. The youngest son, Frank raised rabbits and kept them there. The hay stack, behind the barn, is comprised of the first and second crop of hay - you can tell by the difference in color. Behind that and beside the tree, not very visible, is the family home. An interesting sideline: A cable would be attached to Net in order to lift the hay off the trailer and pile it on the top of the haystack. Edna, the second daughter of Abe, would lead Net, giving her signals when to start and stop in order to pick up the hay. Her younger brother, Frank, began his on-the-job-training to take over the task of handling Net and working the derrick at about age 7. Net was not very good at following orders and pulled the derrick at her own pace, sometimes at a gallop, sometimes slowly, sometimes stepping on the feet of the kids, but always causing them considerable anxiety. But when she did obey, she was offered the sweet treat of a newly harvested beet. She would crunch and smack her lips and loudly enjoy the well-earned snack. These stories were told to us by Frank.

Nazi Germany is the common English name for Germany between 1933 and 1945, when Adolf Hitler and his Nazi Party (NSDAP) controlled the country through a dictatorship. Under Hitler's rule, Germany was transformed into a totalitarian state that controlled nearly all aspects of life via the Gleichschaltung legal process. The official name of the state was Deutsches Reich until 1943 and Großdeutsches Reich from 1943 to 1945. Nazi Germany is also known as the Third Reich, from German Drittes Reich, meaning "Third Realm" or "Third Empire", the first two being the Holy Roman Empire and the German Empire. The Nazi regime ended after the Allied Powers defeated Germany in May 1945, ending World War II in Europe.
