Breast Cancer

Lenora was a fine Christian woman who dedicated her life to serving God. She worked in the prison ministry, attended a Baptist Church and womens bible studies. 14 years ago she donated a kidney to her brother, who now also works in the prison ministry. Her husband, Jim, says she loved to decorate. She was a classy lady who touched many lives and is missed very much.

Victoria DeLange

Left us on 1/28/1995
Leukemia

Vicky was my friend from birth. We grew up right across the street from each other, walked to school together every day from Kindergarten to 6th grade and she was like a built in friend. Whenever we were bored we'd just hang out in the front yard talking over the fence. (My dad and her daughter ended up doing the same thing once she passed away.) She taught me how to rollerskate and play softball and we spent many nights playing hide n' seek in her front yard with Karen Frederiksen and Mark Carlson, our other neighborhood friends. Many times she left us stranded out in the front yard as she got mad and took her ball and went in the house, but we'd just hang out and she'd eventually come back out to play. Vicky had a temper, which I think she eventually outgrew, but she was very athletic and still fun to play with.

As we grew up, we stayed friends even as our paths went different directions. Vicky and I would still meet across the fence whenever we were visiting our family homes and share stories of boyfriends, marriages, pregnancies and kids She had many struggles as she battled her leukemia and her biggest worry was what would happen to her two kids. By chance, God sent me to visit Vicky in the hospital the day before she passed away and I am so glad I did, so I had a chance to see my friend one last time. She was a good friend and I still miss her and the life she missed out on. Tragically, Vicky's husband John passed away two weeks after Vicky did and her children now live with their grandma, Barbara. Her daughter Nicole looks just like her and her son looks like his dad.

I miss you, Vick, and one day we will meet over the fence again to share our stories.
