Delores Dee Bone, 1944-2019

Delores Dee Bone, 75, entered into rest on Dec. 27, 2019, in Tehachapi, Calif.

She was born on April 22, 1944, in San Diego to Garth Dee Blake and Evelyn Alice Blake.

Delores grew up in Angeles Oaks, Calif. She graduated from Big Bear High School and married Darrell K. Bone on June 17, 1972.

Delores served 35 years in the banking industry and duringĀ her working years she was a memberĀ of Rotary and the local Special Olympics. She was the manager at Safe 1 Credit Union when she retired. She lived several years in Glendora, Calif., before moving to Tehachapi in 1984, when her husband was transferred with Edison.

She enjoyed full-time RV'ing with her husband and dog Abby. She was able to fulfill her dream of seeing the changing colors of the trees on the East Coast and going to Niagara Falls. She liked to collect unusual pottery and wood art. After the passing of her husband in 2005, she spent the remainder of her life in Tehachapi. Her favorite activity was sitting in her recliner watching Direct TV, eating doughnuts, and drinking diet Pepsi. For those who knew her, knew that if she had that she was as happy as can be.
