She was married in Richmond, CA in November of 1943, to Leslie Hansen who preceded her in death on November 22, 2010. During their marriage they could be found dancing together and enjoying life.
Delores loved feeding and watching the birds that would visit her at home, going to music in the park, and reading a good book. Going to church was very important to her; she rarely missed a Sunday.
