    Delores married Glenn Flunker at Trinity Lutheran Church in Ellington on June 19, 1952. They were the custodians of the church for 25 years. Delores was a lifelong member of the Ladies Aid and also taught Sunday School. She always enjoyed picking cherries and peeling apples with the Fox Valley Lutheran High School Ladies Guild.

    Delores was an active member of the Outagamie County Farm Bureau, helping with fruit sales, membership drives and bake offs where she took first place for her peach cream cheese muffins. Delores enjoyed cooking (she made THE BEST potato pancakes), baking (can you say cream puffs?) and a good game of sheepshead. She also enjoyed many a night at the Cinderella Ballroom and listening to polka music. She was very proud to have taught her daughters how to polka and do the jitterbug.

    Delores was preceded in death by her husband, Glenn, with whom she shared 59 years of marriage, her father and mother, her brothers and sisters-in-law, Melvin (Vivian, Wilma) and Willard (Ruth), her sisters and brother-in-law, Irene (Arthur) Petersen and Mildred.
