To this union they shared four children, Tomi Ann, Jayleen, Paris Marie and Denis. Delores and Dennis lived on a farm near Wamego and moved to the Rossville/ St. Marys communities in 1956. Delores was a proud farmer's wife who understood what hard work was all about and took much pride in everything she did. She was always caring for her children and helping Dennis with chores on the farm on a daily basis. In her later years, she was employed for the Unified School District No. 321 as a cook and she took much pride in preparing all those meals for the school kids.
