Delores was a selfless giver with a heart of gold. She was always willing to help and always put her family first. She worked hard throughout her life as a cosmetology instructor at the Aveda institute for many years. Once she relocated to Rocky Ford, CO she began working as a correctional officer at the Crowley Correctional facility until she retired. Once retired she enjoyed spending her time “taking a ride to the hill” to play her penny machines. She loved to attend Church, crafting and cooking. Delores would give and do anything to make sure her family never went without and never expected a single thing in return.
Our very special feisty lady will be forever missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. Her light will forever shine on.
