Obituaries are so much more than a public notice that a friend or loved one has passed away.

Dresden R. Daly

2/25/2020 - 2/25/2020

NORTH PEKIN ~ Dresden Raya Daly, infant daughter of Rebecca H. Venovich and Trevor L. Daly. Passed away at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at UnityPoint Health-Methodist in Peoria.

She is survived by her big sister, London R. Venovich; maternal grandparents, Larry and Shirley Garrison of North Pekin; paternal grandparents, Shelly and Michael Laux of Pekin and Bill and Angie Daly of Glasford and her aunt, Chelsea Daly of Chicago.

Dresden’s tiny heart had beat alongside her parents for only 22 minutes. In that short time, she was loved, held and admired as much as humanly possible. Dresden was absolutely beautifully formed: her tiny hands, fingers, toes, ears, nose and adorable little baby butt. She was just perfect.

In her short life, she touched many lives and will never be forgotten.

A private gathering celebrating Dresden’s life will be held February 29, 2020.

Preston-Hanley Funeral Homes & Crematory in Pekin is assisting the family with arrangements.

Memorial contributions may be given to OSF Children’s Hospital of Illinois, 530 Northeast Glen Oak, Avenue, Peoria, Illinois 61637.
