Delores' favorite things in life that she truly loved were dancing and seeing her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a Jack of all trades including a waitress at Pearl's Cafe and Smokey Bear Restaurant ( as it was later called) where she made her famous salsa, she was a janitor (Capitan Schools), Bartended at the Rusty Anchor, cashier at the Shell, but she loved most of all working on the family ranch along side her husband (Luther).

Services will be held Saturday, January 13, 2018 at the Taylor Gym in Capitan, N.M. at 10:00 A.M. Delores will be laid to rest at the Capitan Cemetary. A potluck will follow at the Capitan School Cafeteria.

The family would like to thank Capitan Schools and all the many friends and relatives that helped us through these trying times.
