Custodina "Dina" Draper

December 22nd, 2020

It is with heavy hearts and so many tears, we announce the sudden passing of Dina Draper on December 22, 2020. 

Dina was born in Italy but has been in the Trail area since her family immigrated here when she was a child. She is survived by her twin sister Theresa, her brother Rocco and her younger sister Mary (Wayne). Additionally, she leaves behind her two sons Vince (Jodi) and their daughter Destini and John and his daughter Kaylin who is devastated at the loss of her canasta partner. She will be missed by the Woolco ladies who used to meet for lunch regularly and those who worked with her at Walmart. 

Dina was never happier than when she was swinging on her deck with her dog Foxy, enjoying the mountains and the Columbia River or scoping out deals at the local grocery stores. 

George Eliot said, “Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them.” and Dina’s loved ones will never forget her. 

Bill Clark of Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services™ has been entrusted with arrangements.

You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence.

I am so sorry to hear that Dina has passed away. I was lucky to be one of those Woolco ladies that lunch. Dina made working at Woolco so much more fun than it was supposed to be. Please accept my sincere condolences - Linda Vecchio - Trail BC
