She was preceded in death in 2006 by her husband of over 50 years, Douglas T. DeLaVars, her parents, her brother in Japan and her brother-in-law Gordon L. DeLaVars.
The family would like to thank Ina Chiveri of Maxwell Lilies Adult Care for her loving care and dedication as well as Southern Care Hospice.
