Delores Smith (Cottrill)
Delores was born in Melfort on June 7, 1935 to Eldridge and Mary Cottrill. Delores grew up with the love of her life and was married to Gordon on July 2, 1954. They were blessed to have four children; Greg, Garth, Susan and Brian. They began married life and raising children in Regina where Gordon was a fire fighter and Delores worked at Safeway. In 1968 the family moved back to Melfort to take over the family farm.
