Delores June Todd

June 20, 1931 — April 2, 2019

Delores June Todd, the daughter of Oscar and Ella (Andresen) Lenz, was born June 20, 1931, on the family farm in Silver Township near Holstein, Iowa. Her childhood years were spent on the farm. She attended Silver School #6. Following the passing of her father at an early age, Delores stayed at home to assist  her family.

 On January 30, 1949, Delores was united in marriage to Donald Todd in Holstein, IA. Following their marriage, they moved to the family farm where they have remained ever since. Delores loved living and working on the farm. She enjoyed assisting Don with the everyday aspects of farming. They raised cattle, milk cows, chickens, hogs, ducks, and geese. She enjoyed collecting eggs from the chickens, gardening, and cooking, which she will be lovingly remembered by her grandchildren as the best when it came to her homemade French bread. Most of all, Delores loved her family and always cherished time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

 On April 2, 2019, Delores passed away unexpectedly at the Cherokee Regional Medical Center at the age of 87. She was preceded in death by her parents, Oscar and Ella Lenz; two brothers, Wayne and James Lenz; and one sister, Dorothy Wittrock.
