Delores met and married Gary D. Bruton and from that union had 5 children; Gary, Eddie, Elizabeth, Debra, Melissa. She loved her family and making them big sausage link breakfasts every Sunday when they were growing up. When she wasn’t helping the kids and running the house she would love to relax and swing on the porch admiring her gardening that she would spend hours perfecting. She loved flowers and working in the yard it was her time to herself that she could just work and unwind.
Delores had a passion for scary movies and loved anything with sharks or crocodiles in them. She also enjoyed the Jurassic Park movies as well anything that could give you a good jump scare.
