Deloris was a proud pillar of strength independence and determination who broke down barriers. A unobtrusive woman of honor trust and integrity. She inspired others to succeed in their present and future. These attributes were passed down from her parents of immigrant descent and then carried it on to her daughters in hopes they would continue these principles to their children. She was a true feminist working multiple jobs to provide for her 5 daughters and self. She was a people person throughout her life from waitressing at GP Hotel, Coffee Cup, Municipal Country Club.

It seemed no matter where she was shopping in Bismarck or traveling to visit family and friends you would hear “Hey Deloris” and she more than likely remembered their name’s. She loved chatting with people especially the little ones and babies. She also loved driving to visit family and friends far and wide.
