Delilah Jean Moore 87 passed away at the Monte Vista Estates in Monte Vista, Colorado on November 26, 2020. She was born to Lorens and Bernice (Lakey) Lebeck on August 14, 1933 in Matheson, Colorado.
She married Delbert “Jinx” Moore on June 3, 1951. To that reunion three children were born, Barry Moore, Timothy Moore, and Connie (Moore) Strohmayer. They lived in Westminster, Colorado, Stratford, Texas and then moved to Monte Vista, Colorado to be closer to family.
She worked at the Stratford Post Office for many years, plus a few other jobs while raising her family with Jinx. She enjoyed her family, friends, crocheting, baking, playing the piano and her special dog Gigi. Her favorite saying was “YOU PILL”—that meant she loved you!
