Deloris started her family after marrying Ben Holtgrewe on May 29, 1952, in Remsen. They brought three sons and a daughter into this world. While in Remsen,
Deloris was often referred to as “Mom” by several younger kids. That title carried over to the adults.
Painting ceramics was something Deloris enjoyed doing. She opened a small ceramics shop in Remsen called Dee’s Ceramics.
After moving to Colorado, Deloris started her career at Wendy’s, working there for several years. Relocating to Sioux City, she continued working at Wendy’s.
Deloris retired after the passing of her husband, Ben, on January 30, 2007.
She enjoyed camping, fishing, cooking, and spending time with the grandkids.
After breaking her hip in January 2017, Deloris moved in with her daughter and son-in-law in Sioux City, where she was taken care of for almost three years.
She spent the last 28 days in a care facility, where she prepared for her new life.
Deloris will be lovingly remembered by her sons and their wives, Rick and Joan, Kenneth and Kendall and Jason and Shawn; a daughter and her husband, Pamela and Dennis; a special niece and her husband, Glenda and Joe; six grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; and a great-great-grandchild.
