Delores L. Gaydon Harrelson, 63, of Greensboro, departed from this life on Thursday, January 28, 2016, at her home.
A memorial service, celebrating her life, will be held at 7:00 pm Tuesday evening, February 2, 2016 at Hanes-Lineberry Vanstory Chapel, with Pastor Johnny Ocequera officiating. The family will receive friends following the service until 9:00 pm that evening.
Born February 8, 1952, in Greensboro, to the late Furman and Elsie Gaydon, Delores was of the Methodist faith. She retired from Moses Cone Health Systems after over 10 years of employment. Delores should have been a barista as much as she loved Starbucks coffee. She had a huge passion for animal rescue, most of all for saving feral cats. Delores enjoyed traveling, mostly to the beach to collect sea shells but, her favorite pastime was spending time with her family. Her grandchildren were the apples of her eye. Delores was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her two sisters.
Those left to cherish her memory include her daughter, Angie C. Kilby and her husband Tim of High Point, and Shannon Lowder and her husband Scott of Stokesdale; two grandchildren, Desira Lowder and Bryce Lowder; and other extended family.
Memorial contributions may be made to Humane Society of the Piedmont c/o ASPCA, 4527 W. Wendover Ave., Greensboro, NC 27409.
