Her self-proclaimed goal in life was to be as supportive of her three children as long as she was living, and her children grew to be successful.

To know her was to love her and appreciate her. She had a sense of humor that would keep us in stitches, and she shared that humor with everyone she met. She was loved by many, and everyone shared her sense of humor.

She had a stroke on September 11, 2000. She “wasn’t supposed” to live through it, but she did, her faith, sense of humor, and love from her family got her through the most difficult part of her recovery.

She was born to Fannie Mae Clark Gibson, and she longed to be with her mother since her mother’s passing in 2002.

Delores was an animal lover and an advocate for animal rights. She leaves behind her tiny Maltese, “Lizzie.”

She leaves behind her three children, Joseph Holmes and partner, Nicholas Odden, Malan Parks and husband, John, and Casey Wagoner and wife, Stacy; seven grandchildren, Dane Reeves, Kyler Parks, John Parks, Jr., Lacy Wagoner, Emily Parks, Caylen Caldwell, and Laken Wagoner; two great-grandchildren, EmmaLee Cupit and Matt Parks. She will also be missed by her remaining brother, Calvin “Cab” Gibson, and wife, Sue.

The family requests that donations be made in Delores’ honor to local businesses, Hoofbeats, and PawPrints Rescue. More information can be found at
