Delores Elaine Babb Meyer was born to David and Louise (Lameyer) Babb on August 28, 1931 on a farm near Wilmot, SD. She attended country grade school and graduated from Wilmot High School in 1949. Following her graduation, Delores went to work for Nash Finch in Watertown for awhile and then worked at the Elite Cafe.

On August 24, 1950 she married Theodore "Ted" Meyer at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Watertown. Ted was in the National Guards and was mobilized to Colorado in September of that year. The couple lived there for several months and Delores worked at a cafe. When Ted was deployed to Germany, Delores returned to Wilmot and lived with her parents for a year. During that time, their first daughter, Connie was born in Milbank.

When Ted returned from his military service in 1952, Ted and his family lived in Watertown where he went back to his job at Swift & Co while Delores was a homemaker for several years. She then returned to work part-time at another cafe. In 1964 after Doug was born she started working full time at the Royal Cafe and then at Leo's Good Food.

Delores and Ted bought the Inn Cafe and owned the business from 1972-1980. In 1981 Delores started working at the Office Bar as a cook and worked there for almost 20 years until they closed. She then went to work as a cook for in the Watertown School District at Lincoln School for three hours a day.

She was a member and greeter at the Immaculate Conception Church, and a member of the Eagles Auxiliary, and V.F.W. and American Legion Auxiliary.

Delores loved Christmas time and playing pinochle. Her hobbies also included cooking, reading, playing Bingo and listening to the Minnesota Twins.

Delores is survived by her children, Connie (Jerry) Sowder of Castle Rock, CO, Donald (Cheryl) Meyer, Donna (Ed Hall) Williams, Crystal (Jerry) Hanson, Douglas Meyer and Duane (Mary) Meyer all of Watertown; 14 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild "on the way"; and sisters-in-law, Dolly Meyer and Beverly Meyer.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Ted.
