Delores was a member of St. Theodore Catholic Church where she participated in CCW and the Guild. She was proud to be a member of the St. Theodore’s renovation committee. Her life’s passion was wife and mother. She also worked alongside her family at the Hamburger Inn — a family-owned and operated business for more than 50 years. After her marriage to Glen, she helped him in the home -building business, with everything from decorating houses to payroll. After his death, and at age 58, Delores went back to school earning her real estate licensure and worked for Dress Reality and Coldwell Bankers.

Delores was a proud member of 4-H where she was a longtime volunteer and key leader for the Lucky Clover 4-H Club. She was also a member of the MLS and an officer in the Does Drove No. 70.

Delores was a very honest, compassionate and loving person, always wanting to help those in need. Faith and family were the cornerstones of her life; she was a true caregiver. Her compassionate and kind spirit will be missed greatly by all those who were blessed to have known her.
