She was born March 30th, 1923, in Oak Hill, Ohio to the late Lewis and Myrtle Coon. In August of 1942 she married Paul Delaney who passed away in 1989.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Delaney; son, Larry David Delaney; grandson, Jed Cooper; sisters, Mildred Gillespie and Mabel Radabaugh.

The family would like to extend their appreciation to the nurses and staff at The Laurels of Defiance for the loving care they provided.
