      You know how someone touches your life so much so they make a lasting impression? That was my Auntie Delma. Her laugh was contagious, her smile welcoming. And she was absolutely beautiful in and out. She always made a person feel special. I looked up to her because she was so strong-wouldn’t take any crap from anyone. She was the original OG feminist and I admired her. She is missed tremendously but her light will always shine bright. We love you Auntie Delma! Thank you always for keeping my family, and especially my peace officer in your prayers. You are an angel who has returned home. Love you – Lisa G & family

    Being a good life long friend of the Valdez family Through her sister Rosalie Valdez. Delma was full of life, happy, jokester who laughed full heartedly and was so beautiful inside and out. I have been blessed to know her and got to spend time with her and her family. One great memory, was when we went to the renaissance festival in Larkspur Colorado with her sister Rosalie and daughters. We had a great time together and hearing stories about when they were young was absolutely an eye opener and was awesome. Delma is loved and will be missed. Thank you for your family time Delma.

    To all the Family, of Delma, i woud like to share from the book of Hebrews 10:34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourself that ye have in heaven a better and enduring substance. My sincerest sympathy Rick.

  • J.R Valdez says:

    Delma you were always good to me it was you and nancy that taught me how to take care of myself and know that i was all that i needed to be. You could be strong but also compassionate toward the less unfortunate. I have been very blessed to have had you and my other sisters in my life. I Love You. J.R

    Auntie Delma was a true treasury. The love she had for her kids and Family was Unconditional. Her laugh was contagious and her Smile was as beautiful as she was. But most of all she could dance. And she really could dance πŸ’ƒ. One of my fondest memories was hanging out at my grandmas house in Cheyenne. Watching her dance to Funky-town. To this day when I hear that song. I think of her. Rest In Peace. LYLT Lisa Goossen
