Deloris June Wampner was born in Enid, OK to Walter and Clara Driever on June 4th, 1934. The family moved to Durango, CO in 1944 where she graduated from Durango High School in 1952. Dee went on to graduate early from Blair Business College in Colorado Springs in 1954, then securing a job at NORAD. She later met and married the love of her life William “Bill” F. Wampner (from Marion, IN). They were married 63 years this June. In the early years, they traveled, camped, and put down family roots in Durango. Dee was an amazing mother who took great joy in raising her four children Tonya, Jeff, Renee, and Jon. Dee was always very involved in her children's lives. She supported and encouraged them to pursue the various activities and interests they all had. She and Bill went on to put that same energy, love, and dedication into all 8 Grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. Above all, leading by example Dee and Bill taught their children and grandchildren what it truly meant to be a kind and a forgiving follower of Christ. Though Dee had a sharp and clever mind for business, she found great joy in painting, music, Bible studies, horses, the outdoors, and enjoyed exploring a variety of cuisines.

Deloris is survived by her beloved husband of 63 years, William Wampner, sister Sharon Driever, children Tonya Strider, Jeff Wampner, Renee Patcheck, and Jon Wampner, as well as 8 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren.
