Carol Du Prey. I am so sorry to hear of Deloris’ passing. I bowled on a league with her in Olathe for several years. We traveled to a few states to participate in national bowling tournaments. I used to see her at bingo every now and then. The last time I saw her she told me she had participated in bowling for 32 years. She was a fun lady. Loved to hear her laugh. May she be at peace. She was loved by many.

Deloris was a fun lady to work with at my Dad's store. She and Gladys Chapman were often my cohorts in pulling pranks on Dad. She had a great sense of humor. I'm sure she will be missed.
