Dear Sharon and Hannah, Not sure if you remember me but maybe Sharon will. Deloris hired me to do your Grandmother Parker's laundry way back in the 1970's. She as you know was quite a character. I enjoyed many conversations over those few but impressive years. One tie I remember is when she had and accident and a big drum (if I remember right) fell on her and broke one of her legs. What a trooper she did not let that keep her down long. I was very fond of Deloris. My deepest condolences to you ladies and your families and all her grandchildren and great grandchildren. It was pleasure. Jana Wilson (Long) Curry.

Hi.. We are the family of Barbara Riegel. She lived at Masonic Home where your mother resided. We got to know Dee when visiting her. She was a very nice lady and we enjoyed visiting with her as well. We especially liked playing cards with her! Please accept our sympathy in her passing. We are praying for your family. The Riegel Family ( Mary and Bernie ) and Barbara Riegel.
