DeLoris was born on March 31, 1926, in Fruitland, the daughter of Clyde and Bertha Moore Holliday. She graduated in 1944 from Muscatine High School. On

Nov. 30, 1946, DeLoris married Richard Angerer in Muscatine. She worked for the Connecticut General Life Insurance Company (CGLIC) for 20 years and retired in 1981. DeLoris was a Red Cross volunteer and was very involved at St. Patrick Catholic Church.

DeLoris enjoyed life. She stayed active with daily walks and driving her car well into her 90s. She played cards with zeal, was a steadfast volunteer, and knew how to graciously entertain family and friends. DeLoris was an excellent seamstress and made the kids ‘entire wardrobes when they were young. She loved making matching sundresses for the girls with matching shirt for Tom. She was an excellent cook and baker, but her true expertise was pie baking. She was known far and wide for the flakiest crust of all time. Dick and DeLoris

traveled the world. She was an amazing grandma, and loved the big Christmas Eve’s at her home. And her morning coffee on the porch.
