Ms. Delories was a sweet and quiet lady. Very humble in spirit. The one thing I remember is her good cooking. When I could no longer keep my pet Caesar, she took him and adopted him until his passing some years later. She loved her fur babies.

FROM THE FAMILY

Ma, we love you and miss you so much!!! We did everything you said. Everyone that knew you knows that you feared nothing, you were consistent and "Lola" did things her way. You are at peace now.

FROM THE FAMILY

Sitting in the chair at the job she was devoted to. When she retired, she didn't even give notice. She just left. Woke up one morning and decided she wasn't going back. Wow, what an exit.
