The authority issued a statement on behalf of the Brons family.
“Dayna passed away peacefully this afternoon as a result of her injuries. She was surrounded by those she loved and those who loved her.”
Brons will be remembered for her joyful smile, and passion and love for sport, the press release noted, saying Brons was extremely proud to be part of the Broncos family.
“Dayna’s family would like to thank the first responders, emergency staff, and all those who have cared for Dayna over these last few days for their support. And, they would like to thank everyone across Saskatchewan and Canada for their love and prayers during this very difficult time.”
