    Delores was a very fine lady. I enrolled in her class in Vocational Education, which she taught in the Education College – University of Wyoming, in about 1970. She was a great teacher.
    Imagine my surprise, when I moved to Ashland to teach Vocational Agriculture in 1982, to find out she was an Ashland native and a graduate of the High School. I saw her class photo on the wall in the old school building.
    Years later when she moved back to Ashland I happened to meet her on the sidewalk downtown and recognized her. I often stopped in to see her at her downtown shop before I moved away.
    I’m sorry to hear of her loss. Rest in Peace, Delores.

    A cousin to my dad Gerald Cochran, Dolores was a generation removed from me. But I heard from my dad what a fine and educated woman she was! I’m proud to be of the same Flieschman family tree. Rest in Peace and give all the family members who are already in Heaven my greetings; especially our grandparents Fred and Sarah and your mom Leda and her sister, my beloved grandma Rachelle!
