In later years, she and Myrl enjoyed traveling to their favorite places and visiting family and friends. Delma loved her grandchildren, teaching each one to play cards and making all their favorite foods. The last seven years of her life she resided at Golden Age Nursing Home, where she made a host of new friends and always had hugs and kisses for all who visited.
