Deloures was a devoted farm wife, working with her husband on the family farm in the Town of Oak Grove. She was an active member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Juneau where she was involved with the choir and ladies aide. Deloures enjoyed playing sheepshead, whether it was at the Juneau Senior Center or get-togethers with friends. She loved cooking and was known for her delicious schaum torte. In Deloures’ later years, she worked a number of years at Clearview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Juneau.
