Del was the sweetest, kindest person you could meet. She was a strong person who made the best of every situation and was needed and appreciated by many. Passionate about country music, Del knew all the words to all the old country songs. Del had a greenthumb and enjoyed spending hours in her beautiful gardens. Del was a devoted wife, mother grandmother, sister and aunt who will be remembered every day and will always be a part of all who loved her.
Due to Covid restrictions a private graveside memorial for family will be held on May 17, 2021.
