Susan DeLelys of 397 Fish Road, Enfield passed away unexpectedly at the Cayuga Medical Center on Friday, May 30, 2003 at the age of 73.

Born in Williamson, West Virginia on February 22, 1930, Susan was the daughter of Milard and Ethel Hall Ooten.

As newlyweds, Susan and Robert W. DeLelys moved to Enfield in 1960. It was here that Susan tended her magnificent flower and vegetable gardens. She also enjoyed fishing but any activity was embraced by Susan as long as it involved her family. Her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the center of her life and nothing warmed Susan's heart like their presence. She will be dearly missed.

Susan is survived by her husband of 43 years, Robert of Enfield; 2 daughters, Deborah (Don) Fitch of Williamson, WV and Beverly (Jerry) Dolson of Liverpool, NY; 2 sons, William (Chung Ock) DeLelys of Webster, NY and James (Linda) DeLelys of Brewerton, NY; 7 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; 2 brothers, John Ooten of Columbus, OH and George (Betty) Ooten of Williamson, WV and many nieces and nephews.

The family will be present to receive their friends at the Ness-Sibley Funeral Home, 23 South St., Trumansburg on Monday, June 2, 2003 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm and from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
