Delores L. Burich, age 82, of Brillion, passed away on November 9, 2012 at Westhaven in Brillion surrounded by her family.
Delores was born on June 10, 1930 in Menasha, daughter of the late Edward and Isabella (Wolf) Tschantz. On May 10, 1951 she married John J. Burich in Brillion. John preceded her in death on September 15, 1977. Delores worked for over 40 years at the Calumet County Bank, becoming the first woman officer and holding that position for many years before her retirement in 1987. Delores loved going to the casino, fishing and spending time with her family. She was always willing to help, whether it was sewing for the family, making and donating afghans, ironing for church or counting the money from collection. Delores also loved to bake, often times making "the best chocolate chip cookies." She never allowed the cookie jar to empty.
