Her early years were spent living on the family farm in River Hills, Manitoba. At 10 years of age in 1950, after the passing of her father, the family moved to Transcona. In 1958 Del met Ken at the Transcona Pirates Community Club and they were married that same year, Del and Ken remained married for 64 years. Del was a strong supporter of her church; she joined the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd and was confirmed in 1963.

She had fond memories of working at CFB Winnipeg and later at the Child Guidance Clinic where she retired in 1985. Del was a very charitable person, and many were attracted to her personality and warm character. She loved to craft and spent many years quilting, producing many quilts for her family to enjoy for many years to come.
She will be missed by all that knew her.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Dear Ken and Family; Please accept our condolences. I have many fond memories of the kindness you and Dell showed me as a young man finding my way into adulthood. That continued as Jo and I became a couple. We moved east (Ontario) and visits became less frequent but we always looked forward to our Salisbury breakfast visits when passing through Winnipeg. I remember Del as being quiet, yet funny and always making sure we were made to feel special! She will be missed by all who knew her, she is a great loss to all of us.

You will be missed Del. You were a very special friend of mine. We worked together at the Air Force many years ago. You were my bridesmaid at my wedding in 1967 and Lisa was my flower girl at the age of 3. You both made my day even more special. We saw each other socially for many years and several times our husbands joined us. I have many happy memories. Thanks for being my friend Del.

Dear Ken and Family: Dennis and I were very saddened to hear of dear Del's passing. Del was a kind and gentle soul, always ready with a warm smile and open friendly conversation. She was our first visitor to our new home in Calgary, and we have always cherished the memory of that wonderful visit almost 10 years ago. Del was a gifted quilter, with an eye for beautiful colour combinations and designs. Her family is fortunate to have and use these quilts in memory of their mother, grandmother and great grandmother. We loved our time spent with Del over many lunches after Sunday church services, and missed her company when we moved. We are thinking of you Ken, and your family, as you mourn the loss of your lovely wife. - Posted by: Dennis and Lillian Kozak (Church friends) on: Jun 12, 2022
Del was one classy lady, always with a smile and a good word. I fondly remember her when I was a child as someone I thought I should emulate (although I fell far short of her example), as I observed how she conducted her life with charm, dedication and dignity. She was a loving daughter, sister, mother and wife. Life takes us down some long and winding roads and sometimes separates us over time from the family and memories we cherish; I will always wish our lives had stayed connected. Rest In Peace. - Posted by: Cindy Barry (Cousin) on: Jun 11, 2022
