Mrs. Hale was a teacher and a good friend. My father Philip L Stephenson was principal at Converse Elementary school (1966 to 1986) He was a Butler Graduate and thus Mrs. Hale was the only teacher in the OH system to have also graduated from Butler U. I always enjoyed her laugh, sense of humor and compassion for children.
Mrs. Hale was a friend of our family & a neighbor. She had me mow her yard and I remember she was passionate about her kitty's. She was a kind gal and loved children. She will be missed by so many. She & my dad could sure carry on a conversation and just laugh. Such a happy soul. Farewell my old friend.
My condolences to the family and friends.
Mrs. Hale was my 3rd grade teacher many years ago, I have so many fond memories of her. She will be greatly missed.
Delores was my neighbor teacher for many years. I have many happy memories, it was always a fun time. I remember walking into the happy chaos of her classroom where students learned, were loved and allowed to be themselves. She had a unique talent I was in awe of - she could twist an apple in half! On her last day of teaching I walked into her classroom with an apple so she could do it one more time. We are all better for knowing her.
Delores Hale was one of God's blessings in this world. I worked with her husband at the Waterworks and was proud to put her grandson on the Fire Department. Her cheerful nature and discerning eye contributed to our community in wonderful ways. Her dedication to children instilled values in them that benefits - and will benefit - us for years to come.
What a wonderful person and 3rd grade teacher. She was responsible for instilling the love of reading in many a student. Will be keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers.
Again, the end of an era. When I was in the third grade, I wrote her a letter that said she was the best teacher I ever had. Imagine....she was only my third teacher at that point. However, she really was the best teacher I ever had. I shall always remember and keep her and her teaching in my heart. Steve Hyman
Hello, Pat: I knew Irv at Ivy Tech Community College. He was one of my instructors in 2003/2004. Also, my mother, Janet, and I knew both Irv & you at the Christland United Methodist Church. I knew Delores through the Grant County Democratic Women's Club. She was a very nice lady and a dear friend of mine. Delores and I worked on committees together and often sat at the same table at meetings, dinners, etc. She was a good friend. I am so sorry to hear about Delores. I send Irv & you my sincere condolences. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Hale’s passing. She was not only my favorite teacher but also the best woman I’ve ever known. Such a huge heart and sweet disposition. I’ve simply adored her most of my life. She has been missed deeply all these years and will continue to be now that she is gone from this earth. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
I’m so sorry! She was loved by many! Prayers for the family!
I read Delores' obituary feeling a heavy sense of loss. Two of my kids were blessed to have had her for their third grade teacher and I taught with her at Converse Elementary for 20 years. Unless you were fortunate enough to witness her enthusiasm for teaching,you cannot fully comprehend what an effective,loving teacher she was. She knew how to get the shy child out of his/her shell and to be more confident.
May God comfort the family with many happy memories of this sweet lady!!
Pete and I are so sorry to hear of the passing of Delores! She was such a great teacher! Our youngest daughter, Susan, was in her class at Converse Elementary. They both loved the cartoon, "Peanuts!" We spent many weekends going to the bookstore to purchase books that was full of "Peanuts" cartoons! To this day, Susan still remembers and talks about she and Delores would laugh together as they were reading the antics of the characters!
She will be missed, that is for sure! Delores was a happy person, and had such a cute giggle!!
Mrs. Hale was my third grade teacher at Roseburg School. At that time she was a newly married young lady. The whole class adored her and it sounds as if many young people throughout the years felt the same. God bless her.
What a grand lady. I met Deloris through church and her smile and enthusiasm for life was always present. I always heard how her students loved her and a few years ago we needed a teacher for the older roudy group, during summer bible school. She took that on and while she held class everyone was engaged. She made the two let’s say hyper boys her personal assistants and it was wonderful to watch. Her car was her office and if you needed something it could be found there. What a pleasure it was to know her and her wonderful spirit. Many times in the last few years I look where she always sat in the back pew and missed her. She made a difference in our church and the lives of many others.
So sorry for the loss of my dear friend. Spent many hours at her house with her and husband George and nephew Bill Tribbett. God Bless Michael and Linda.
Mrs Hale was one my favorite teachers at Converse Elementary.
RIP Mrs. Hale
