Deloras Ann Frederick of Moore, Oklahoma, passed away from this life to begin her eternal life in Heaven on June 16, 2022, at the age of 80. Deloras was born in Elgin, Oklahoma, to Delbert Dodson and Hazel (Baxter) Dodson on January 25, 1942. Deloras grew up in the Oklahoma City metro area, attending high school at Capitol Hill, graduating with the Class of 1960.
Deloras is survived by son John Dale Frederick and wife Beverly Frederick, son James Craig Frederick; brother Michael Dodson sisters-in-law Judy (Frederick) Moreland and husband Dr. Harris Moreland, and Linda (Frederick) Swanson; grandkids Tommy Frederick and wife Candice, Randy Frederick, Ashley Frederick, Nichole Clark and husband Ryan, and Nicholas Parr; great-grandkids Catie, Brooke, Jake, Rocky, Derek, Garrett, Ganden, Grace, Brody, Zayn, and Maison; nephews and nieces Shon, Mickey, Robert, Beth, Katie, Brad, Lynette, and many great-nephews and nieces.
Deloras was preceded in death by her son Kevin L. Fredrick, husband John G. Frederick, mother, Hazel Dodson, father, Delbert Dodson, sisters Carol Koret, and Jerri Dodson, mother-in-law Virginia Frederick, father-in-law Dale L. Frederick, a brother-in-law, Dean Swanson, and a nephew, Erik Swanson.
She loved and trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ and was devoted to her beloved husband of 64 years, John. Her love extended to her sons, her extended family, and her many friends, as well as her lifelong passion for painting, golf, and bowling.
While attending high school, Deloras worked as a ticket seller at the movie theater. She then attended school, becoming a beautician. She specialized in hair until 1970, at which time she returned to her one true love – art. Deloras was a talented artist and painter, and before judging art shows all over, her own art was featured in many shows and galleries across the state.
After retirement, Deloras and John retired to Lake Eufaula where they adjusted to the slower pace of life down there. She became involved in a small Baptist church there, where she made many friends. Deloras and John were members of “The Breakfast Club”, a group of friends who had breakfast together every morning.
In the final chapter in this life, when declining health required that they leave their beloved Eufaula and friends there, they discovered another family in their Sunday school class and congregation right here at First Moore Baptist Church. She met beautiful people with open arms who showed so much love for them.
Memorial services for Deloras will be at 11:00am on Wednesday, June 22, 2022, at First Moore Baptist Church, located at 301 NE 27th St. Moore, OK, 73160. Services are under the direction and care of John M. Ireland & Son Funeral Home & Chapel.
Honorary pallbearers are Tommy Frederick, Randy Fredrick, Ryan Clark, Nicholas Parr, Robert Moreland, Shon Koert, Garrett Clark, and Ganden Clark.
