Delores F. Smith
LEWISTON - Delores F. Smith, 86, went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 9, 2019. She was born in Leeds on January 20, 1933, the daughter of Weston and Addie Wing Burnham.

Delores worked at several jobs including the Monmouth Corn Shop, Highmoor Farms in Monmouth, McNamara's Restaurant in Winthrop, Livermore Shoe, and Chick Orchards in Monmouth, where she retired after 24 years. Delores was a Sunday school teacher in the Leeds Nazarene Church. She loved singing in the choir and singing in a trio with her son and daughter-in-law. Her hobbies were crocheting, hooking rugs, doing crossword puzzles, completing jigsaw puzzles, reading and helping her husband in the vegetable garden. Delores enjoyed planting and caring for her gladiolas. She planted as many as 7000 some summers. As she shared and sold her gladiolas, she made many friends during those 40 years.
