Dale Elizabeth (Senechal) Barile, 71, of Bozrah passed away Thursday, November 3, 2022 at Yale New Haven Hospital after a courageous 10 year battle with cancer. Dale was a two time transplant recipient of bone marrow and stem cells. She was born in Sanford, Maine, on October 2, 1951, the daughter of Wilfred & Margaret (Henry) Senechal.
Dale was a 1969 graduate of the Norwich Free Academy and received her Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Psychology from Eastern Connecticut State University.
On October 6, 1973, she was united in marriage to Paul J. Barile at the Taftville Congregational Church, just recently celebrating their 49th anniversary. For more than 20 years, Dale and her father owned and ran the House of Prints business in Norwichtown. She then moved on to work at Backus Hospital and L&M Hospital as a unit coordinator for their ICU, CCU, and Emergency Department. Dale was a life member of the Bozrah Volunteer Fire Department, serving many active years as an EMT. In addition to her community, Dale adored her family and friends most of all bringing everyone together to cook for them, and spending her summers at her family homes on Mousam Lake and York Beach, Maine.
In addition to her husband Paul, Dale is survived by her daughter Pamela of Ledyard, her brothers-in-law Nicholas (Jean) and Samuel; her nephews John (Lauren), Nicholas III, Christopher (Nicole), Daniel, and Timothy; and her niece Kimberly.
