My friend, Gary Day, was a very good friend of your Mom's. They worked at Blue Cross Blue Shield together for many years. He also knew your Dad. When Gary's wife, Gloria, passed away in February, 2012, your Mom sent a note that really meant a lot to him. I just wanted you to know that he valued her friendship through the years.

She was just a beautiful woman inside and out. I worked with her at BCBS and she was as you say a fashionista. She always looked great and was as sweet as she could be. Her family is in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Deb Morton Deb Morton, June 26, 2021 Dearest family of Delores, I loved Delores as I worked with her for a time at Steinmart. She was the epitome of fashion and grace, and most of all kindness. She was a beautiful soul, always positive and such an encouraging person. I always wanted to see how she was dressed because it was such a treat to see what she could put together. She was immensely talented and I was blessed to know her.

Jeri Tolbert, June 24, 2021 Mary, Michael, Bill and family, We met sweet beautiful classy fun loving Delores when Dick and I moved to Overture in March 2020. She and I instantly had a friendship that felt like we knew each other for years. All the times we saw her she looked so classy.

She always had restaurant recommendations, we will miss that! Love you Delores and may you Rest In Peace and hurt no more.  Diana & Dick Bergman

She was always impeccably dressed and loved and accepted everyone. She will be missed. Dee Neukranz, June 24, 2021 Will miss her. She was always so gracious to me and was the perfect hostess.

Janet Farr, June 23, 2021 Delores was such a beautiful, wonderful lady. She always inspired me to try a little bit harder. She was compassionate and thoughtful and I considered her a true friend. I just met her when I moved into Overture in April '20, but she immediately charmed me with her true friendship and caring attitude. I had hoped we would be friends for a very long time. I will miss her greatly. Elizabeth Carskadden, June 23, 2021 Dear Mike, Mary and family, you all are in my thoughts this week. I pray that you hold the memories close and share a few laughs and stories remembering your mother. She was an amazing lady and she is cherished in our memories. God bless you.
