Aunt Delores was a bubbly, funny, wonderfully caring person. I always thought of her as the family clown, (along with her brother Don!!) Always could get a laugh out of us. Delores and Kotty raised an awesome family, and I am so proud to be their cousin. Have many wonderful memories that will stay in my heart. Will miss you lots, Auntie! Thinking of you all..

I am so sorry for your loss. May the fond memories that you shared with Delores help to ease the sadness. May the "Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort" strengthen you during this difficult time. {2 Corinthians 1:3,4} — D Howard (, MD)

February 13, 2018
Aunt Delories was always very loving, and genuinely cared about each person I ever saw her converse with. Sadly, I only saw her a few times in her golden years of life. My prayers are for the family and that you would feel the presence of a compassionate Savior who welcomes all into his kingdom who trust him. May he give you special peace during your time of grief and celebration. Thank you Aunt Delores for always showing genuine love to our family. God Bless You all! Joseph and Janet Dokken (Lake Nebagamon, WI)
