Deloris Fern Nelson went to live with the Lord on Saturday, February 22, after a heroic 2.5 year battle with cancer. She wanted to thank Dr. Figueroa and his great staff at Solace Cancer for all their help and kindness. Deloris was born in Henrietta, Texas, and raised in the East Texas city of Longview. After high school graduation, she received a scholarship from the San Francisco Art Institute. She graduated with honors from the Art Institute and San Francisco State University. The only downside of her S.F. experience was she met and married Bob. For 32 years, she has filled his life with joy and love! They also managed to produce a great son, Brady.
In 2000, the family moved to Burney where Brady completed Jr. and Sr. High. She made many great friends in that delightful town. Four years ago, we settled in Redding.
She will be terribly missed by Bob, Brady, and a host of wonderful friends. She has left her beautiful artwork, that has been sold worldwide, as a true and lasting legacy.
A Chapel Service will be held on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 at 2:30 pm, at Lawncrest Chapel, 1522 E Cypress, Redding, CA 96002
