Thinking of the fun amusement park loving lady who will always be so loved by her daughter. I only met this lovely lady once but judging from the giant heart and kind soul of her daughter as a reflection she must have been a super amazing lady. Thoughts be with you all as you celebrate a life lost and spirit never to be forgotten.

I will always remember Delores’s smile and fun loving personality! I’ll never forget the Campfire Girls outing in a cabin without heat as snow was coming down! It was too cold to go outside to start a fire to cook breakfast! Delores was always happy, cheerful and full of giggles!
My condolences with love !
