If life is a classroom, then Trilby was meant to teach. Shortly after she began her teaching career she decided to turn her focus to special education. She truly loved what she did. She had the ability to see the importance and potential in all children and love them.

Trilby was born July 6, 1941 to Emery Orval Provost and Della Dalby Provost in Klamath Falls, Oregon.
She was lucky enough to be raised with many relatives and cousins nearby. She cherished this about her childhood. She and her brother Norman were privileged to be raised by two amazing parents that gave them a wonderful and loving start to life.

She met and fell in love with Ray Dallon, and together the teacher and the rock hunter began the adventure of a lifetime. They welcomed three charismatic children into the world, Disa, Ryan, and Jillian. (She loved Ryan the most.)

She didn’t put much stock in planning, because even the best laid plans can go to waste. Instead, she would recognize when a day turned from ordinary to extraordinary and delight in the magic of it. Her mantra was, “So, it isn’t home sweet home, Adjust!” One of the last things mom said to us before she passed was, “It will be fine. It will be new, and one thing about new, is that it is new!” It will truly be a new adventure for all of us that loved her so dearly. She looked forward to seeing her mother, father, and her beloved dog Molly again.

She leaves behind a legacy of love and family; her husband Ray, children: Disa, Ryan (Michelle), Jillian, (Julie); grandchildren; Kendra, Calli, Brent, Dan, Ronin, Keegan, Lucy, Liam, and Zoe.

In lieu of flowers, please read your favorite children’s book to someone you love. Time well spent.

A celebration of Trilby’s life will be held on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at Larkin Sunset Lawn 2350 East 1300 South, Salt Lake City, UT. A visitation will be held at 10:00 am, followed by a graveside service at 11:00 am.

Internment under the direction of Larkin Sunset Lawn Mortuary.

  • I am so very sorry to hear about Trilby’s passing. She was so genuinely kind and funny. Always tolerating us high school-aged jerks roaming her home and neighborhood, throwing a quip our way then standing up for us when things got tough or an injustice crossed our path. She leaves behind phenomenal children who I remember fondly. May you all be comforted by the knowledge that she lives in you in all the good ways. Best, Molly Malouf
