She loved spending time in her garden, canning and baking. Delores was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church - Silo, where she was a part of the Silo Serenaders, Ladies Aid, and Altar Guild.
Survivors include her husband, Arnie, two children, Connie Oldham of Wanamingo, a son, Duane Oldham of St. Paul Park and two sisters, Marilyn (Keith) Connaughty of Lanesboro and Kathrine Kulas of Winona as well as many other relatives.
