Former Bullhead City, Ariz., resident Dayle Dene (Bromley) Freeman, 60, of Hackensack, Minn., passed away at her home unexpectedly on Friday, February 17, 2012.

Dayle was born to Charles "Chuck" and Deana (Sparks) Bromley on December 6, 1951 in Waterloo, Iowa. She was baptized at Nazareth Evangelical Lutheran Church on June 29, 1955. She grew up in Hackensack, living above her parents' family business, Bromley's Ten Mile Lake Inn. She attended both Walker elementary and high schools, graduating in 1970.

In 1975, Dayle married Gerald "Jerry" Freeman in Aberdeen, S.D. Together they had two sons, Anthony "Tony" Freeman and Chad Freeman. While living in Walker, Dayle was employed at Scott's 200 Club, Chase on the Lake and Bieloh's Family Foods.

In 1984, Dayle and her two sons moved to Bullhead City, Ariz., to be closer to her parents. While there, she worked for many years at Sam's Town Casino in Laughlin, Nev.

To be closer to her sons and their families, Dayle moved back to Hackensack in 2010. She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 202. After returning to Minnesota, Dayle fell ill and spent many months rehabilitating under the excellent care of the staff at Golden Living Center.

Surviving Dayle are her sons Anthony (Susan) Freeman and Chad (Missy) Freeman, both of Walker; two granddaughters; half-sister Terry Bengman of Detroit Lakes; and her nieces.

Dayle's parents and brother, Scott Bromley, preceded her in death.
