Delores Irene Wood was born July 16, 1943, in Sundance, Wyoming. She was the daughter of Earl Wood Jr. and Clara (Redding) Wood.

Delores grew up in New Haven, Wyoming. She was united in marriage to John “Tom” Mahoney on April 28, 1966.

Together they made their home west of Alva on the Mahoney Family ranch and raised three children there. She really enjoyed reading and could always be found with at least one book in her bag by her side.

She also enjoyed doing word search puzzles, listening to music, watching movies and getting together with family and friends. She had a sense of humor that would always make you giggle just by the innocent nature of her jokes. Delores will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Delores is survived by her sons, Steve (Leslie) of Belle Fourche, Justin (Amber) of Phoenix, Arizona; daughter, Amanda Mahoney of Laramie, Wyoming; eight grandchildren; three great grandchildren; two brothers, Roger (Lorna) Wood of Hulett, George (Judy) Wood of Newcastle, Wyoming; sister, Alethea Edwards of Moorcroft, Wyoming. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Tom; an infant sister, Twila Renee; and brother-in-law, Joe Edwards.
