Dale DeArmond lived in Southeast Alaska since 1935, when she came to Sitka to marry Bob DeArmond. Born in Bismark, North Dakota, she grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota and in Tacoma, Washington. She described herself as "a print maker working primarily in woodcut and wood engraving."
Much of her work can be found in books that she has written and illustrated. Her first book, Juneau, a book of woodcuts, won the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Award for the best illustrated book in 1973. Other books include Berry Woman's Children, The Sea Oil Lamp, and the limited edition Raven, A Collection of Woodcuts.
Dale passed away in the Sitka Pioneer Home in the Winter of 2006.
