Obituary of Delores Roebuck
Delores was born on October 26, 1945 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. Delores attended school in Insinger and Foam Lake. Delores met Joe and they were married in 1964 on Manitoulin Island in Ontario. They spent a brief period living in Toronto and then they moved back to Yorkton to be closer to family. Delores and Joe were blessed with three children, Shayne, Shannon and Tracey and four grandchildren Brooklynn, Lexie, Alina and Dexter. Delores and Joe opened Joe’s Farm and Auto in 1978 and she assisted with operating the business until 2009.
Delores enjoyed cooking and baking and she made the best sour cabbage rolls. She loved feeding people and you would never leave her house hungry. Delores loved being on the farm especially during harvest time. That was absolutely her favourite time of year. Delores and Joe enjoyed camping and travelling. Their travels took them to many sunny destinations such as Mexico, Florida, California, Hawaii, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and Cuba. Delores loved her family to pieces. Family was everything to her and she would do anything for her family. She also loved the many pets she had over the years. Her house always had dogs and cats in it. She loved her pets so much that when she moved from the acreage she made sure she found a house where she could take her dog Toby.
Delores was very social. She cherished the time she spent with her sister Amy and they would often spend time shopping and having coffee in Yorkton. They were inseparable. She also enjoyed being part of a Beta group and an aqua size group for many years. She loved to chat on the phone or meet her friends for coffee. She will be remembered for her generosity, her big heart and her feistiness.
