I am so sorry to hear of Deloris's passing. She was such a lovely woman. She was my elementary school teacher in Hallam and always picked me to make the signs for class because she said I had such pretty handwriting - funny what things you remember - but what's even funnier is now no one can read my writing! She was a charter member of the Legion Auxiliary along with my mother and we had many wonderful memories from Auxiliary and also from church. Glad she can be united in God's loving hands. Sending my sincere sympathies to the family for the loss of such a wonderful person.
