Dellora Margaret Blanchard entered into eternal life on Thursday, July 9, 2020, at the age of 99 years. Dellora was born on February 17, 1921 to her parents, Charles and Mary (Kauth) in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She attended high school in Milwaukee and in her senior year was picked Wisconsin’s Cherry Queen which led her to bake pies at Wrigley’s in downtown Milwaukee on Wisconsin Avenue. After high school Dellora worked at Citizen’s Title and Abstract in the Plankington Arcade on Wisconsin Avenue. She later was employed at A.O. Smith in the Science Building where she met and fell in love with Irvin Blanchard. Dellora said “yes” and married Irv on June 29, 1946, at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church in Milwaukee. They soon moved to Big Cedar Lake to a home her father and uncle started building but did not finish. Together, Dellora and Irv, completed construction of their new home where she loved raising her family and entertaining friends. They lived there over 50 years creating wonderful memories. Dellora enjoyed roller skating, fishing, sewing, making crafts, league bowling, golfing, card clubs and dominos. She was an active member of St. Peters Catholic Church in Slinger where she became involved in the Christian Women’s Organization. Dellora was also a member of Cedar Lake Homemakers and VFW Auxillary Post Slinger.

My sincere condolences to Dellora's family. I remember her many years ago when I worked in the PT dept at Samaritan. She so faithfully visited her sister Marilyn, and that's when I got to know her. I am so glad you have many years of memories as she was one of the most delightful ladies I ever met. Thoughts and prayers.
