Delores Ann Grote

Delores Ann Grote was born on April 12, 1944, in Fort Smith, Arkansas to Doc and Pauline Russell. She attended school in Fort Smith, Arkansas and Orange Cove, California, and she graduated from Reedley High School. Delores married Robert Grote on December 31, 1960, and they had two sons, Bobby and Steve. Throughout her career, she worked in various packing houses and at Maxco Supply. She retired from Kings Canyon Unified School District where she worked as a special education paraprofessional so that she could be a full-time grandma to her six grandchildren: Ryan, Karissa, Danielle, Steven, Amanda, and Sharise. Delores left her earthly home on October 22, 2020. She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Robert, sons Bobby (Deanna) and Steve (Stacey), her brother Jerry, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Gloria McClary.

My heart goes out to the whole Grote Family. I have fond memories of Dolores. She was so sweet and always had a radiant smile. Sending much love and hugs to you at this sad time. Love, Shelly Eaton
