Delia loved to travel to Kalamazoo to visit her favorite sister, Sophie, take trips to the casino and go out to eat. She also enjoyed spending time in her yard doing yardwork. She will be remembered for having a green thumb and growing beautiful plants and flowers. Delia was a wonderful cook and enjoyed entertaining friends and family. She loved her dogs Chu Chu and Olaf very much. Delia could always be found holding her favorite fountain drink, a Coca-Cola with extra ice.
