Mrs. Dora Crooker of Delhi, passed away peacefully with family by her side at the St. Joseph's Hospital, Hamilton on Sunday, September 12, 2021 in her 84th year. Dora was born and raised in Langton, Ontario. She met and married the Love of her Life, Jack Crooker and lived in Tillsonburg for 12 years. The two settled and raised their family in Delhi. For many years, she enjoyed being a Senior Support Worker; the role was natural for her because of her passion and kindness. She enjoyed reading, day trips with her daughters and chats with her sisters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved listening to music with her family and sharing stories of the days going to dances and music events. She was always available for her family. Her soft, gentle and easy going nature made her a delight to be with. To her, family was the most important thing in her life. Former Dora Marie Howick. Beloved wife of the Late Jack Crooker (1985).
