       Deloris M. Weitzel, age 91 of Valparaiso, IN, passed away peacefully on June 25, 2020.  She was born on December 28, 1928 in Valparaiso, IN to Wallace and Gladys Hanrahan, both of whom preceded her in death. 

       She is survived by her loving children: Ted (Bonnie) Weitzel of Valparaiso, IN, Tom (Sally) Weitzel of Griffin, GA, and Jackie (Dallas) Reeves of Brazil, IN; her adoring grandchildren: Jeff (Casey) Weitzel, Mindy (Brad) Hawkins, Stephen (Tara) Weitzel, Michael Weitzel, and Scott (Emily) Reeves; her loving great-grandchildren: Reagan Weitzel, Madison Weitzel, Jori Hawkins, Luke Hawkins, Levi Hawkins, Isabella Weitzel, Katerina Weitzel, Benjamin Reeves, and Henry Reeves. She is also survived by her special nieces, Vicki Arrasmith of Valparaiso, IN and Joni Cluver of Valparaiso, IN. She is also survived by much loved cousins, great-nieces and great-nephews.  She was loved by many and loved them all in return.

       She was also preceded in death by her loving husband, Theodore, her brother, Edward Hanrahan and her sister-in-law, Arvetta Hanrahan.

       As a teen, Deloris spent one summer waitressing at Winona Lake and was very proud to recall that she waited on the composer of the song The old rugged Cross. For many years, she was a kindergarten department superintendent in Sunday School and was famous for her story about Mrs. Red Bird. She was active in Extension Homemakers most of her life and at one time served as County president of Extension Homemakers. She was also a devoted volunteer at the Chesterton Resale Shop for several years.

       Deloris was a strong Christian and attended CrossPointe Christian Church for many years.  She loved traveling to Arizona with her husband. After his passing, she enjoyed many trips with her lady friends. She will forever be remembered for her amazing baking skills, and she was especially famous for her pies and chocolate cake.  We are comforted that Deloris is in her heavenly home with her Savior.

       Funeral Services will be held on Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at 11 a.m. at CrossPointe Christian Church, 114 E US-6 Frontage Rd, Valparaiso, IN with Tim Wanless officiating. Burial will follow at Chesterton Cemetery. The family will receive friends on Tuesday, June 30, 2020 from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at White-Love Funeral Home, 525 S 2nd St, Chesterton, IN. For the protection of the family and the community, masks are highly recommended when coming into the funeral home.

I have many happy memories of visiting the farm and playing in the barn, riding on tractors, fishing and many great meals! The "museum" in the basement of Delores's house was always interesting. My condolences to your whole family.
