Verna “Delores” Claypool

DANVILLE — Verna “Delores” Claypool, 82, of Danville, stepped into heaven on Sunday, June 2, 2013, while holding her husband’s hand at North Logan Health Care in Danville.

Delores loved her husband and her family and was known for her cooking and baking skills. She looked forward to preparing and serving family dinners and took great pleasure in making everyone feel welcome in her home. Christmas was her favorite holiday and during the season she shared her baked goods with many friends and neighbors.

Delores was a lifelong member of the Second Church of Christ in Danville as well as a founding member of the Whitfield Christian Church of Sarasota, Fla.
