On Monday, May 18, Delores C. Zink passed away at the age of 94.
She was born and raised in Canton, Ohio, the only child of Charlie and Viola Oberdusky. She and husband, John(deceased) raised their family in Chagrin Falls.
In 1988 Delores moved to Kent. She worked as a commercial artist for Harris Publishing for many years. She had a lifelong passion for art and nature. In retirement she became an accomplished watercolorist. She had many long-standing friendships through, Rubber City Artists, Valley Art Center, Native Plant Society, Cleveland Natural Science Club, Water Exercise at Roosevelt pool in Kent and travels with Elderhostel. Delores was a kind and compassionate woman, always thinking of others. When asked she offered practical advice and never hesitated to take on challenges.

She was much loved by her children; Joan Zink Angle (Terry), Alan Zink and Steven Zink. She was a devoted grandmother to Tom Angle and Colin Angle (Erin) and 2 great grandchildren: Jackson & Finn. Close friend, Lee Busch(deceased) was a cherished companion in later years.
