  23. My deepest condolences to the whole family. Daldry was a big support to me in my first years of teaching and always such a friendly colleague with great stories she would tell in the staffroom. I have many great memories of camps together, office banter, teacher rallies and she was certainly a lifeblood of Drouin Secondary. Taken far too soon.
    Rest in Peace Daldry.
