Born on October 10, 1930 in Johnson City, Tennessee, Delorese lived a of life of love, family and service to her community.
After a meritorious life of public service, Delorese retired to live and care for her husband of 60 years, Bobby Land in Altus, OK.
From following Bobby across the world in his meritorious military service career, to watching her two sons grow to create their own families, Delorese's strength and determination guided the lives of everyone she loved.

When it came to her sweetheart and husband of 60 years, Delorese dedicated the last 20 years of her life guiding and protecting him in his battle with Alzheimer's.

In addition to the family that God gave her in blood, Delorese and Bobby adopted many others into their family circle of love and would have wanted to celebrate those connections as well.
