Delores Sherburne passed away on Monday, October 7, 2013 at St Mary's Hospital in Rochester. She was 83 years old.
Delores was born on August 15, 1930 in Mason City, IA to Andrew and Rose (Horejsi) Kappas. She was a first generation Greek and very proud of her heritage. She graduated Sacred Heart Catholic High School in Boone, IA . On May 18, 1949 she was united in marriage to Glen Sherburne at St Theodore Catholic Church. Together they raised six children and lived in Albert Lea.
Delores was a member of St Theodore Catholic Church where she participated in CCW and the Guild. She was proud to be a member of the St Theodore's Renovation Committee. Her life's passion was Wife and Mother. She also worked alongside her family at the Hamburger Inn – a family-owned and operated business for over 50 years. After her marriage to Glen, she helped him in the home building business, with everything from decorating houses to payroll. After his death, and at age 58, Delores went back to school earning her Real Estate licensure, and worked for Dress Reality, and Coldwell Bankers.
Delores was a proud member of 4-H, where she was a long-time volunteer and Key Leader for the Lucky Clover 4-H Club. She was also a member of the MLS, and an Officer in the DOES Drove #70.
Delores was a very honest, compassionate and loving person, always wanting to help those in need. Faith and family were the cornerstones of her life; she was a true caregiver. Her compassionate and kind spirit will be missed greatly by all those who were blessed to have known her.
