Obituary for Orsolen DeLuca

Orsolen DeLuca, 97, of Chisholm, died Saturday, September 16, 2017, at Cornerstone Villa in Buhl, surrounded by her loving family.

She was born on January 20, 1920, in Buhl to Eugene and Mary Fontana and was a lifelong Chisholm resident. After high school, she worked at the munitions factory in Milwaukee during World War II. Orsolen married Dominick DeLuca on October 26, 1946, upon returning to Chisholm where they raised three children. She was a homemaker and member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. Her love of the outdoors resulted in long walks in both summer and winter, along with ice skating and biking. Orsolen enjoyed embroidering, jigsaw puzzles, and especially dancing with her husband, Dominick.

The family would like to express their appreciation to the kind and caring staff at Greenview Alzheimer’s Residence and Cornerstone Villa for the wonderful care given to our mother and grandmother.

Orsolen is survived by her children, Patricia (John) Nelson of Chisholm, Ernest (Karen) DeLuca of Faribault, MN, and Mary Kay (Terry) Nosan of Chisholm; grandchildren, Jeremy (Fatima) Nosan, Aaron Nosan, Katie (Chad) Weber, Kelly (Ben) Arneson, Kari DeLuca, Sarah (Cody) Gamble; and great-grandchildren, Noah Arneson, Eli Arneson, Hailey Weber, Jackson Weber, and Levi Gamble.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Katherine; brother, Secundo; husband, Dominick in 1990; and her granddaughter, Jennifer Nelson.
