Our warrior & earth angel. This selfless, generous matriarch whose formidable cooking and pure heart held our family together. Dolly taught us how to love unconditionally, she changed the trajectory of countless lives for the better; her husband, children, grandchildren, friends, strangers and students. For 29 years, Delphine was a Para-Pro” for special needs students in the Farmington School District for which she received special recognition. Dolly was pure love and an exceptional human being!

Our wife, our mother, our “Super Babi” lost her battle to Alzheimer’s, which is so much more than memory loss.
