Deloris loved spending time with family and was always ready to lend an ear or helping hand to others. She was a talented seamstress and cook who took great joy in sharing these gifts with her family and friends. There were many lucky recipients of her homemade pickles, jams and beautiful quilts.

She is survived by husband Don, her six children, 14 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, siblings Gloria, Bob, Ken, Richard, Tom, Derald and their spouses, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
