After retiring, Delia attended just about every cooking class offered at Heritage Park. She also enjoyed ceramics and created some beautiful pieces and even won an award for a cup she designed. She enjoyed “popcorn refills” watching romantic comedies at the movies, going out to eat, and shopping. She was the queen of coupons and sales! Delia enjoyed her gambling casino trips with family and friends and her daily workouts at the YWCA with her friends.
