Delores was one of the family's historians who enjoyed listening to Oldies But Goodies (often with her eyes closed as she swayed back and forth remembering the good old days) and was an amazing cook. She retired, as an employee of the State of New Jersey, Marlboro Psychiatric Hospital, after 31 years. She was also a member of the Elks Club in Red Bank, New Jersey. Delores lived a full life, she cherished her family and she will always be remembered for her love.
