Delora Helon Drayfahl

October 17, 1930 — September 25, 2015

Delora Helon Drayfahl 84 of Truman passed away Friday, September 25, 2015 at her home in Truman. Mom had little control over her life in the last few years so in accordance with her wishes cremation has taken place and burial at sea will take place at a later date. Online Condolences can be made at www.zahariafamilyfuneral.com Delora was born October 17, 1930 in Cherokee, OK to Rube Olen and Rilla Mae (White) Whitley.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Rube & Rilla Whitley, brothers, Kenneth, Perry, Maurice Whitley, and granddaughter Vicki Jr. Delora always put family first and even though a stroke left her disabled in her mid-50’s she loved keeping abreast of all the doings of her children and grandchildren. She and Larry Sr. enjoyed a special relationship and never ran out of things to talk about whether it was the family, the past, current events or the future.
