Delores Ann (Graff) Owens was born on March 6, 1931, in Harper County, Oklahoma to Howard (Pat) Graff and Irene (Epp) Graff. Delores grew up in the Kibby community, attended Kibby Grade School and graduated from Ft. Supply High School in 1949. Delores and John Owens Jr. were united in marriage on January 26, 1949, at Perryton, Texas. They made their home west of Buffalo, on her grandparent Epp’s farm and ranch. To this union, three children were born, Michael Kent, Randy, and Pam. Delores loved being a homemaker, wife, and mother. She also enjoyed working in her church especially with the “kitchen crew.” During wheat harvest the hands looked so forward to the meals Delores delivered to the harvest field. Delores cooked, sewed, and ironed for her family and kept her home spotless. Delores liked music, Neil Diamond in particular and reading novels. Delores especially enjoyed watching her grandkids and great grandkids in their activities. Getting her hair done, once a week was a priority with Sandra Shane for almost 50 years. Besides her work in the Buffalo United Methodist Church, Delores belonged to the "Red Hats” organization and helped with Blood Drives over the years. Delores went to be with her Lord and Savior on January 4, 2023, at the Western Skilled Nursing Home in Buffalo, Oklahoma.
