A sweet photo of Delores that I took during a surprise party for one of our young intern wives. Delores always had a precious smile on her face that genuinely lit up the room!

I remember the day I met Delores. It was my second time attending Kettle Falls Community Church and I noticed her sitting alone and I asked if I could sit with her. We were both fairly new to this area and both missed our old friends. We became such good friends and had so many fun times together.

Delores, Betty, and I were like three peas in a pod, with Betty being our mentor. We got together every week for a card game. They both tried to teach me how to play Pinochle, but I just couldn’t get it. It just seemed so complicated and required paying attention ~ which I’m not really good at. So instead, we played Canasta because it was easy to play and we could still goof off. We always started our time together with a daily reading and prayer. I treasure those memories.

One day Delores and I decided to take “Flat Stanley” to lunch, so we drove up to Canada for the afternoon. It was a fun, silly day, and I think Delores sometimes wondered if I was playing with a full deck.

Whenever Betty had to go to Spokane to see her doctor, we would take her. Sometimes we were asked if we were sisters. One lady said, “Looking at the three of you, your mother must have been a beauty.” We thanked her and replied, “Yes, she was!” Another fun day.

Delores always had the coffee on and we shared so many little secrets with each other. I never had to call before dropping by. She was such a dear, sweet lady, and she smoothed out some of my rough edges. I feel so blessed to have her for a friend. I know she is with the Lord and I will see her again in Heaven.

Dolores was a one-of-a-kind lady. She was a pure delight every single time we were in her presence. She smiled a lot, had a darling sense of humor, loved people, enjoyed animals, and cherish her relationship to Jesus that was so new & dear to her heart in her latter years.

She deeply loved her husband! She was interested in the music he enjoyed and always encouraged him. I remember asking her about her family soon after meeting her. Delores deeply loved the kids and grandkids that were added to her life through marriage. Her fridge was filled with pictures, and she beamed with pride telling me about each one.

After Gene could no longer come to church because of his illness, Delores would often still come and sit with Betty, her treasured friend. Betty helped Delores grow in the Lord greatly in the years that they were able to go to church, Bible Studies, and other events at church. She loved meeting with women each week in her home. Delores loved going to bridal and baby showers and celebrating with these young women!

Delores heart was very sensitive toward others. She had a sweet disposition and a caring, grace-filled spirit about her. If someone was hurting, she would gently smile and hug the person. Her presence just relaxed others. She had simple trust in a holy God who would continue to be there for her in any of her present and future trials.

We cherish every sweet memory of Delores, and we thank God for allowing us to be her pastor & pastor's wife. Knowing & loving her has been a highlight in our 38 years of ministry. We were always welcomed into her home, even when she had to save us from being jumped on by her over-active dogs! :)

Thank You, God, for the life of Delores. We will be so glad to see her again in our Eternal Home one day soon!

Sis was my sister- in-law but we considered ourselves true sisters connected at the heart - she was the most kind, selfless, giving, and loving person I have ever known - a complete selfless person. She cared for my Mother and Bob in their time of need. For that I am forever grateful, and I will miss my Sis deeply.

Psalm 23
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in greena pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou
anointestb my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I
will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

John 10:27-28
27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch
them out of my hand.

John 14:1-3
Jesus Comforts His Disciples
1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled.
You believe in God; believe also in me.
2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have
told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?
3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to
be with me that you also may be where I am.


Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost, but now am found
T'was blind but now I see

T'was Grace that taught my heart to fear
And Grace, my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed

Through many dangers, toils and snares
We have already come.
T'was grace that brought us safe thus far
And grace will lead us home,
And grace will lead us home

Amazing grace, Howe Sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now am found
T'was blind but now I see
Was blind, but now I see.
