Upon my return to Long Lake in a few weeks, I will sadly miss seeing Deloris. She was such a professional, beautiful lady inside and out. Rest In Peace with your husband that you spoke so fondly of and your dog. ❤️

My husband, Lou, and I are so very sorry and want to give our condolences to Deloris's family. We knew Deloris as a friend and neighbor in Long Lake as we lived not that far away on Deerland Road. In fact, Deloris helped us to sell our home when we moved closer to our family. She was a caring woman, always smiling and ready to talk about her children and grandchildren. May the many wonderful memories bring you comfort during these difficult days.
Sharon and Lou Waagner

The Class members of F. D. Roosevelt High School Class of 1958 send our condolences to Deloris's family on this sad occasion. She was at the last Class of 1958 Reunion in September 2018, however, I was unable to attend due to lower back surgery. Sorry I missed Deloris at that time. However, I am sorry to see another classmate has passed away and will notify our other classmates. She was always a positive, happy, helpful person! May she rest in peace! Prayers will be offered for Deloris and her family and friends.
