Henny Dallago (nee deBoer)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Henny Dallago (née deBoer) on Friday, January 24 2020 after a long battle with cancer. Her final days were spent surrounded by her family at the Squamish Hospice in Squamish, BC.

Henny was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and immigrated to Canada with her family, settling in Cornwall, ON. After meeting her husband Giulio, they established the successful Edelweiss Pastry and Delicatessen, and went on to have three children, Natalie, Isabel, and Julius.

In 2002, Henny and Giulio followed all their children out west to BC, retiring in Whistler. Always the workaholic, Henny continued to work as manager of a ladies clothing store. Henny probably would have worked for free, as she loved meeting people, chatting, joking, and getting to know them. She was thankful to all her customers at the Pastry stores and the clothing store for the relationships that were built there.

Henny was predeceased by her son-in-law Gavin. She is survived by her husband Giulio, mother Hendriena, her children Natalie Fletcher (Alan), Isabel Contant (Jean), and Julius Dallago (Angela), as well as her 7 grandchildren, who were a source of great pride to her and brought her lots of joy.

As per Henny’s wishes, her immediate family will celebrate her life privately, in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Squamish Hospice Society.
