A private graveside service will be held for Delores Jean (née Steinfadt) Day at South Park Cemetery, in Roswell, at 1 p.m., Jan. 30. She achieved grace on Jan. 23, 2014. Delores was born in Le Mars, Iowa, to Dora (née Andriessen) and Herman Steinfadt, both of whom precede her in death.
Those among us privileged to cherish our memories of this extraordinary person include her sisters: Gladys Kock, of Le Mars, Iowa, and Mavis Tonne, of Fairmont, Minn.; brothers: Donald Steinfadt and spouse, Virginia, of Grundy Center, Iowa, Marlin Steinfadt, of Le Mars, Iowa; sister-in-law Bonnie Steinfadt and sister-in-law Betty Jacobs, of North Loop, Neb.
Also left mourning her loss are her children: Michael Dean Day, his wife, Laura, and his children: Quentin, Clarissa, Amanda and Samantha; Donald David Day, his wife, Brenda, and his children: Mandy, Sara and Stephanie; Berry Lee Day and his children: Crystal, Adam, Alicia and Christopher; and Thomas Raymond Day, his wife, Sharon, and his children: Tiffany and Joshua. She took particular pride and joy in the fact that she had 25 great-grandchildren. Sadly, space limitations prevent listing all of those Delores held close in her heart. Please take solace in the fact that her love for you knew no barriers, drew no toll, and, as intangible as love might seem at times, was a solid fortification that stood between hardship and those she fiercely defended.
Preceding her in death are her husband, Raymond Dean Day; her son, Timothy Ray Day; her brother, Harold Steinfadt; sisters: Betty Stinton and Joyce Moritz; sister-in-law, Diane Steinfadt; brothers-in-law, George Moritz, Clarence Kock, Leonard Jacobs and Rudy Tonne.
