Delores was a loving wife, mother and friend to those who knew her. She enjoyed puzzles, swimming at the local Y with her friends, camping and boating. She also liked traveling to Reno, NV and occasionally the local casino. Delores was a huge dog lover all of her life! She also loved spending as much of her time with her sons and their families as possible, hosting get-togethers and was the rock of the family.
