Delma had a love of life, family, friends and her hobbies, which included gardening, cooking, sewing, word search puzzles and traveling. She doted on her parents, quitting school to help support her family. She married Walter McMahon in 1948 and together they raised three daughters and shared 51 years of marriage. The family grew to eventually include grandchildren, great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandchild, all providing enormous delight. After her husband passed in 1999, she met the second love of her life, John LaGrand. He was her companion for 17 years until his passing in 2017. Delma was a beautiful lady, inside and out. She will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
