Delores M. Howard was born on January 29, 1947, in Waverly, Camden County, Georgia in the Honey Creek Community. She was the fourth of 12 twelve children born to the union of Barty and Beatrice Howard, Sr.

Delores was educated in the Camden County School System and was a graduating member of Ralph J. Bunche High School, Woodbine, Ga, Class of 1965. While in high school, she received recognition for her baking and seamstress skills.  She was also an attendant on the homecoming court in 1962.

At an early age, Delores became a member of Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church where she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal savior. She was a faithful, loyal, and dedicated servant until she relocated to Queens, New York and attended Victory Deliverance Church, (Laurelton, New York). Elder Fred Sanders was the Pastor and she served as a Deaconess. Delores later moved her membership to One Way Church of Christ, (Springfield Gardens, New York) under the leadership of Bishop Gregory Tucker.  There she continued to serve as Deaconess and Church Mother. In 2013, she returned home and rejoined her home church, Mount Sinai Missionary Baptist Church, under the leadership of Bishop John D. Perry II, where she served diligently until God called her home.

While living in New York, she was employed by AT&T for many years until her retirement.

Proverbs 18:22 states: “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord”, and indeed Hilton Morris found that in Delores Howard. Delores was united in Holy Matrimony with the love of her life, Deacon Hilton Morris (a Guyana native) on March 25, 1975.

Delores brought so much joy to so many individuals. She was the epitome of a “Family Woman,” a woman of faith, personality, strength, and character.  She loved and provided for her family unconditionally.  If anyone had to do without, it would be her and not her family. She was a source of wisdom, strength, motivation, encouragement, cooperation, and support for her family, friends, church members and anyone who needed her help.  She was a one- of- a- kind sister, auntie, cousin, and friend and she will be greatly missed.

Delores Howard departed this life on Sunday, September 18, 2022. She was preceded in death by her husband, Deacon Hilton Morris; parents, Barty Howard Sr., and Beatrice A. Howard; brothers, Elder Barty Howard, Jr., and Townsend Jackson.

Delores Howard leaves to cherish her memories; brothers, Elder James Howard, Deacon Joe (Betty) Howard, Deacon Rodney (Ethel) Howard all of Brunswick, Ga., Ulysses (Emily) Howard of Miramar, Fla and Theodore (Erma) Howard, of Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; sisters, Marilyn Howard, Vanessa (Earl) Thomas, Joyce Howard, Minister Shelia Howard all of Brunswick, Ga., Carolyn (Lancelot) Edwards of St. Mary’s, Ga.; a very special sister/friend Jennifer Phillips; God-children, Aubrey Howard, Juwan Chee, Michelle, Ceyana Coley, Alexia Howard;  a host of devoted nieces, nephews, cousins, and sorrowing friends.
