I was a caregiver for Delores. She was by far the most humble and sweetest soul you could ever come across but, also with a dash of sas. We loved her immensely and enjoyed every day we got with her, she became apart of our hearts and that’s where she will stay. I’ll miss your beautiful voice, long live our yodeling Queen. You can now sleep until 830 like you always wanted too without distribution, we love you.

I will remember this wonderful women for the many amazing things she brought into the lives of those who were blessed to know her.
Beyond her physical beauty, bright smile and kind heart she possessed a determination of will, a courageous heart, an ability to correct unsavory or ill guided character without offense. She could light up a room with joy while entertaining you with music, poetry and song.
She was a formative force in my life even though we were mostly miles and worlds apart.
That's the favor and grace an aunt can bring to your life and I'm so grateful she was a part of mine. Happy trails to you Aunt Delores, adios for now.

Delores was a perfect match for Grandpa Fielding. She blessed his life immensely and also the lives of all of his children and grandchildren. It didn't take long for us to start calling her "Grandma Delores" because of the love and joy that she brought into our lives. She was kind, fun, and selfless. I will miss her guitar playing and yodeling, her infectious laugh, and her warm smile. Thank you Severe family for sharing her with us.

I had the pleasure of knowing both Delores and her late husband Pat...and was fortunate enough to get to enjoy time at their beautiful ranch in Summerville where they shared their faith, love of Heavenly Father, musical and story telling talents, as well as their amazing Haflingers. I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to know her. My deepest condolences to her entire family, I have no doubt she will be greatly missed, but what wonderful and blessed memories you all must have to share of her.
