She then met and married Victor H. Pilsner on February 10, 1968, in Stratford, Wisconsin and moved to Cedar Rapids. Vic and Dee owned and operated D&V IND Supply for 40 years.  She was a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church and Polka Club of Iowa. She loved spending time with her family and friends, reading, dancing, and gardening. Dee and Vic spent springs fishing in Minnesota-she was the fisherman of the two. They traveled most of the states and gambling for fun.  Dee was loved by all she met and will be greatly missed by her family and friends. 

The family would like to extend a special thanks to Mercy Medical Center and the Dennis & Donna Oldorf Hospice House for all the loving care they gave to Delores.
