Delma Morales Obituary

Delma Morales

October 12, 1958- February 22, 2024

Delma was born to Frank G. Morales and Narcissa Reyes Morales October 12th, 1958 in Monahans, Texas. She was raised in Pyote, Texas, alongside her five sisters and one brother. Delma graduated from Monahans High School in 1977.

Delma went to be with her Lord and Savior Thursday, February 22nd, 2024 at her home in Bedford, Texas, following a brief but valiant battle with cancer. Delma is survived by her brother Moses Ruiz, sister Ana Morales, nephew Raymond (Monica) Adams, niece Cathleen Nichole (Curtis) Greene, sister Deann (David) O’Lenick, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nephews. She was preceded in death by her father Frank Morales; mother Narcissa Reyes Morales; sisters Linda Brady, Agripina Carrasco, and Eva Morales; and, nephew Gilbert Adams.

Del or D, as she was called by her friends and colleagues, was a hard worker, starting with part time employment at Ward Memorial Hospital while she was still in high school, followed by working for James L. D. Cam’s medical office, before moving on to working as an office manager for Kay Derrick Real Estate. Delma moved to Wisconsin, where she held various temporary positions in Two Rivers and Manitowk, before returning to Bedford, Texas. Once back in Texas, Delma worked for Darr Equipment as a receptionist until they were acquired by Holt. She completed her work history with Builders FirstSource.

Delma had many passions in her life. During her time in Pyote, she raised three kids, goats- Claudia, Emily, and Sarah. She had several annual traditions that surrounded holidays, one being a passion for baking rum cakes at Christmas, baking up to 20 per year, and delivering them to family and friends. Another annual tradition was assembling Halloween gift sacks with Eva and sitting on the driveway handing them out to neighborhood children. She and Eva also crafted Christmas trees out of baby food jars and glass bricks and lights to represent glowing Christmas presents. Her favorite passion was talking with friends, family, and anyone she met.

Delma’s favorite piece of jewelry was a ring that Moe found at the bottom of a pool- a dome ring with a mustard seed. Her second was a gold ring with three little stones. She loved the music of Toby Keith, Doobie Brothers, Journey, Steve Miller Band, Boston, Eagles, and Bonnie Raitt. Everyone who knew her, knew of her love of Hallmark movies, Hallmark Mystery movies, QVC, and JTV. She enjoyed hamburgers, Coke, Dr. Pepper, and sweet tea. When asked about her favorite dessert, she answered “Do I look like I have just one?” Her favorite vehicle was her 66 Chevy Impala, and, her favorite football team was whoever was the underdog. Delma could often be heard saying “come on,” “be kind,” and “be nice to people.” For each person she loved and shared her life with, there will be a void that cannot be filled.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
