Anna O. Dunn Dale, age 86, of  Mineral City (New Cumberland), Ohio, died Wednesday morning,  December 29, 2021 in  the Mercy Medical Center at Canton, Ohio following a sudden illness.

She was born June 21, 1935 in Howenstine in southern Stark County, Ohio and was the daughter of the late Daniel Frances "Frank"  and O.
