Della A Gavin, 94, passed away peacefully at St. Francis Medical Center on October 23, 2016.

Della was born in Peoria, Illinois on July 11, 1922 to George H. and Viola Wasson Rump. She married John ”Jack” Gavin on November 25, 1983, he passed away on December 10, 2008. She was also preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Frederick G. Rump.

She was formerly an active member of St. Thomas Catholic Church. Della graduated from Peoria High School and attended Midstate Business School. Della was employed by Commercial National Bank (now PNC Bank) for over 40 years, serving as an Executive Department Manager for Consumer Loans. She was a dedicated book keeper for her family’s business, George H. Rump Construction Company. In our immediate family, she is one of the last members of “the greatest generation.”

Della is survived by a nephew, nieces, step-daughter, and several step-grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank all of the employees at the Rosewood Care Center of Peoria for their gentle care and dedication to Della the past several years.
