She was a past member of the Sunshine Singers Choral Group. She loved keeping her brain sharp by doing word puzzles and many different crafts, especially crocheting. Her family was the light of her life, as she was theirs.

*** These two gracious ladies died on the same day within seven hours of each other. They have been joined as family for 39 years by the marriage of Delcie's son, Bill, to Therese's daughter, Pat. They journeyed together to the next life hand in hand. ***
