Delores was a kind and giving mother, neighbor, and friend. She believed in taking care of her family, and she enjoyed cooking the Sunday roast until it was good and done—and never forgot to put the ketchup on the table and spent hours literally making pizza once. All joking aside, Mom knew how to stretch a penny and keep all five of us fat and happy. She enjoyed watching the Cubs, taking care of her grandchildren, cleaning, and more cleaning. We all love her with all our hearts and will miss her dearly. But now she is back with Dad and Patty. No more suffering and being lonely.
