Dr. Delphine “Del” Short of Beaumont, has left us at age 87, going home to Jesus to rest in grace. Family were able to be at her side as she passed peacefully at her daughter’s home in Costa Mesa on July 27th, 2020. She was born in Tulsa, OK on November 16th, 1932 to Opal and William Short. Moving from Oklahoma to the San Fernando Valley she attended Canoga Park High School. Del went on to graduate from the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1954 and then moving to Beaumont she partnered in opening Beaumont Chiropractic. She expressed great joy in serving the Beaumont community as a Doctor of Chiropractic for more than 60 years. Del loved being with family and friends, supporting her church, traveling the world, and being active in her community. Of note, she was a lifetime member of the Beaumont/Banning Soroptimist, served as treasurer of the Riverside county chapter of the California Chiropractic Association, and served for many years on the board of Beaumont’s Cemetery District. Activities such as tennis, dancing and enjoying her home in the Sun Lakes community were some of the simple pleasures she prized. Del is survived by her son, Gary Wines of Beaumont, CA, and her daughter, Carole Taylor of Costa Mesa, CA. She also leaves her grandson Nathan, granddaughters Lindsay, Ashley, Sarah, and Kendra of California and Michelle in Alabama, along with her great grandchildren Lauren, Madison, Taylor, Nathan Jr., Marshall, and Whitney, and great-great granddaughter Sawyer. Del will be missed deeply by her family, friends, and patients, but we know she was welcomed home with open arms where she has gone to meet her maker in Heaven. A Celebration of Life will be announced and held at a future date when gathering restraints permit.
