Posted Condolences:


  1. Delores always kept in contact with family. I always enjoyed getting her Christmas letters. You will be missed Aunt Delores.

  2. Delores you will be missed. Loved her story’s about North Dakota and some history since am not from these area on our trips to Grand Forks, ND with her and Carl. I will miss our conversations on the phone!

  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jennifer and family. I will always remember Aunt Delores’s smile and laugh.

  4. Delores, I miss your calls, letters and cards, they were always fun and enjoyable. I still have one of your rugs you made in my family room it reminds me of how thoughtful and creative you always were. You were a great sister to my mom and an wonderful aunt. You are in our hearts forever.

  5. I last spoke to Delores just prior to her death. She was very alert and was just as I remembered her going up and visiting over the years. Jennifer, I live in Tucson, AZ if you ever get to travel. Carol Vesley Whittle

  6. Dear Jennifer, I graduated with Kay Aaland Schremser from University of ND in the same class of 1971. I will miss Delores’s Christmas cards and letters telling me the family news and what she and Carl were doing. She never missed any year. I realized something was wrong when I didn’t get one. She told me of my mother’s Cousin Norman Aaland’s passing. She and Carl were my mother Johanna Meade Weeks’s favorite cousins. Mother’s Cousin Clarence Gardner of Missoula, Montana, who died in 2010 at the age of 90, liked them a lot too and went to visit. My mother’s sister Thelma Meade Vesley and my mother’s sister Edna Meade Anderson spent a lot of time with Delores and Carl in New Rockford. Carl was always the most helpful guy.
