Delia was preceded in death by her husband, Thomas; son, Ernest; and two grandsons. She is survived by her children: W. L. Oliver, Tommy Oliver and wife Judy, daughter, Linda Lawson and husband Chris, Mike Oliver, and Brenda Oliver, widow of Ernest. She also leaves behind 7 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren. She will be greatly missed.
