Deloris was my cousin and I can remember spending some of my summer vacation time on my Uncle Alfreds farm where Deloris grew up. Deloris was a very kind, thoughtful person. We used to have large family reunions, however, as the years went by all the cousins seemed to go their own way. As a result I have always wondered what happened to Deloris. She was a favorite cousin and will be sincerely missed.

Dee was a wonderful person and a great neighbor. I will never forget the many nights of sitting in her living room, and the wonderful conversations we had. She had such a way of seeing the positive in everything. Her laughter will be missed. negative.

Dee was a wonderful lady. I loved playing golf with her years ago. She was always so friendly when I'd see her since then. Now she is with Dick and they were a great couple together.
