So sorry to hear of your loss. She was very big contribution to the community and to me for many years. She was always there for us. We will always remember her in our hearts. Thinking of you, Bev Aanderud


I'm sorry to hear about Delores' passing. I have many fond memories from growing up across the street from the S & H. Delores was also a nurse while I was hospitalized at Memorial Hospital in 1973. She was a wonderful nurse. I will hold dear the many memories I have been blessed with of both Delores and Donnie.   Wally Rice
