Dellois Carrin Becker Sefcik, 81, of Taylor, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Monday, January 13, 2020 after a daunting battle with dementia.
Dellois was born Sept. 23, 1938, in Thorndale to Alfred E. and Minnie (Moerbe) Becker.
She graduated valedictorian of the class of 1956 from Thorndale High School. She married Garry Gene Sefcik March 9, 1958.
Dellois brought unconditional love and joy to her family through each circumstance life threw her way. She loved God, family, wine, and chocolate. Those she knew well are likely to remember she would “kill for chocolate.” Her greatest joys in life always called her “Memaw.”
Dellois was preceded in death by her beloved son, Jason Clay Sefcik in 1999; sister and brother-in-law, Peggy (Becker) and Hugh Caffey Jr. of Thorndale; and brother-in-law, Kenneth Sefcik formerly of Taylor.
She is survived by her husband of 61 years, Gene; daughter, Tammi Gay (Randy) Stefanowicz of Taylor; and three grandchildren, Luke, John, and Savannah Kaspar.
Family will receive friends Wednesday, Jan. 15, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Providence Funeral Home.
A celebration of life will be held Thursday, Jan. 16, at 10 a.m. at Providence Funeral Home, with a burial following at Taylor City Cemetery.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of S.P.J.S.T. Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Taylor for their care of Dellois during her stay at the facility. In addition, many thanks go to her extended caregivers, Donna Ladner and Denise Pippin.
In lieu of flowers, donation in Dellois’ name may be made to any Alzheimer’s charity of choice.
