She attended North Central Airlines School in Kansas City, MO and this led to her employment as a tele-type operator for Pan American World Airways in New York City from 1948 – 1950.

Delores was a member of Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church where she was an active volunteer, Eucharistic Minister, and a faithful member of the morning coffee group.
