    It is an honor and a privilege to have know Del I met Del in Calgary 1980’s. Del was very honest, friendly and concerned about your well being. Del asked a lot of questions “just to get to know you”..she says; but if you asked her she would say “none of your business”. Del loved to learn about our culture, traditional foods (bake bannock & Indian popcorn) and listen to stories of old. My family adopted her we loved her real person ways; she fell in love with my late mother Adeline and my children/granchildren she lived with us for months from 2012/17. Del loved her family and would make sure to kept in touch. Del was very spiritual and accepted the Lord August 2017. We will miss her but her legacy will live on through her family and the children she loved. God blessed us by sending His angel Del to touch our lives. Del is in a better place. May God bless you all with love, good health, and happiness.
