Delia (Gaouette) Dunn, 79, of Simsbury, beloved wife of Samuel M. Griswold, died Sunday, December 10, 2017 at Hartford Hospital. She was born September 22, 1938 in Holyoke, MA, daughter of the late Reginald and Jeannie (Brown) Gaouette.

Mrs. Dunn was the Head of Marketing for Hooker and Holcomb in West Hartford for many years prior to her retirement. She was a member of the Simsbury Garden Club.
