So sorry to hear of your loss. We were thinking and praying for your whole family during the last week and more. I have lots of great memories of visits to the house in Lily and the cabin at Enemy Swim. Aunt Del always made me feel welcome and part of the family. Even with all of the mouths she had to feed, there was always room for one more. She was always interested in what I had been up to and would always have some kind of treat to share. She'd even laugh at my silly jokes and puns - that's a true sign of one who is filled with grace. Peace to you all as you celebrate the memories of a very special lady. Love, Doug & Laura Evenson

So sorry for your loss. It wouldn't hurt so much if we didn't love so much... We are with you in spirit on this special day of home going...Wish we were eatting the celebration lunch with you all right now. Lots of great memories of the favorite place to go during childhood! Aunt Del usually didn't let me get away with too much of my usual shinanigans, but she'd laugh along until she sent us out to the yard-- especially too much Donald duck! Hugs and prayers to all. Love Dave and Marvene Evenson

To all of my extended Berg family...............Delores was kind, and one of a kind! I have countless wonderful memories of her and your entire family on visits to Lily as I was growing up. Del was a pistol and life was never dull with her around. I count myself so fortunate she was a part of my life. I regret that distance prevented me from spending time with her and all of you as the years have passed. You are all on my heart..........there is probably a game of whist going on now with Bub, Grace, Pete and Del. Love and condolences to each of you. Kathy Jensen Baber
