Delores and Earl were one of the first neighbors we got to know when we moved to Appleton almost 37 years ago. They were very friendly and giving. They included our son in some of their family activities when he was growing up. They gave of their time as poll workers for the city. Delores and I had many personal conversations about the importance of family and the importance of our faith in God. Delores shared recipes and her knowledge of plants. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor. She will be greatly missed.
