She was born on May 24, 1936 to Ward Eugene and Velda Lucille (Roberts) Wilcox on a farm Northeast of Meadow Grove, Nebraska. She was baptized in the Madison United Methodist Church in 1936. Delores attended elementary school in Madison country schools near Meadow Grove, Madison, and Norfolk. She graduated from Norfolk High School in 1955 with her sister, Roberta Lute.
Delores began working at Dale Electronics/Vishay on March 20, 1967 and worked there until her retirement in 2001. She loved to bake and decorate cakes for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, or any special occasion. Delores was an avid fisherman and loved to take others fishing with her.
God was the center of Delores’s life. She was a member of the Victory Road Assembly of God church for over 50 years. She nurtured many children in the church as a Sunday School teacher for many years. Her Sunday School children were “her kids”. Her church family and friends were very important to her. Delores was a great supporter of many missions and volunteered, ministered, and donated to the Norfolk Rescue Mission faithfully along with other missions.
Delores lived in the Madison and Norfolk area all of her life until she entered the Hillcrest Care Center in Laurel on February 14, 2020.
Delores is survived by one brother, Rodney (Jean) Wilcox of McCalla, Alabama; brother-in-law Gary Lute of Laurel; and many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly. She is also survived by many loyal friends whom she considered family.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Ward and Velda; sisters, Evelyn Fuller and Roberta Lute; and sister-in-law Penny Wilcox.
