Delores attended a one-room schoolhouse. She graduated Ottumwa Heights Teacher's College before traveling from Iowa to California to find employment as an elementary school teacher

Delores had a great sense of humor and laughed heartily with her many friends. She held a special place in her heart for children and their causes. Delores loved to sew and created everything from Baptismal and First Holy Communion gowns to Halloween costumes and prom dresses. Dee was a fun loving and warm-hearted woman who will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
