I will miss hearing my Great Aunt Delores laugh as all of her babies “puppies” weaved in and out of her legs and wrapped her up in their leashes. She had the most contagious laugh.

Delores was a second mother to me for the first 12 years of my life. We became very close the last few years of her life. I love her and I will miss her. Dan

The Lord has gained another one of his children and is rejoicing as we are sad at her passing. We will see her again in a pain free environment and have a great time with her.

Delores had a wonderful laugh and loved her family so much. She told me last time I saw her that she was truly blessed by all her children, but Pam and Gary were extra special blessings in her life.

May the family remember all the good times and rejoice in her life.
Love To all

So many wonderful memories with my loving, little sister, Delores! She was a bit “ bossy” through our years as siblings... but always with an eye towards caring for my well-being! I will especially miss her contagious and hysterical laughter whenever we shared times together with our families! I will always love you, my dear sister, and feel comfort your resting with Dally, Marcia, and our Savior and Lord!

We have lost a wonderful light in this life. Heaven has gained one.

After I married Delores' daughter Pam, we, as a couple, attended the 1980 Polczynski Reunion in Illinois. I recall sitting at an outside table at the hotel with Delores, her sister Patty, and sister-in-law Ruby. Patty and Ruby were telling me stories about my new mother-in-law and one in particular left us all laughing hysterically. It was about a game they played at an intersection where kids were on each corner and Delores was in the middle of the intersection. I won't go into the details but lets just say Delores was quiet revealing. I have had the pleasure of reminding her of this over the past 43 years and always laugh about it. She said many times, "Will you ever forget about that story?" My response was always, "NO!" Love you Mom! See you later.

Delores was so inspiring and such a delight! She never stopped sharing and learning about her faith; took scripture classes until health issues prevented it. She shared tales of a life well-lived and nourished our parish family with her outstanding service in so many ministries. Our lives were much enriched when our paths crossed, and her shining light will be greatly missed. May Delores rest in peace in her eternal home.
