Delores Cottom Obituary

Delores Ann Baker Cottom, 81 of Terre Haute, Passed away on Friday, November 17, 2023 at Majestic Care of Deming Park.  She was born in Terre Haute on July 13, 1942 to Robert “Bob” Baker and Ruth Zenor Baker.

Delores was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, The Terre Haute Moose Lodge, Marine Corps League Ladies Auxiliary, the U.S. Power Squadron, and volunteered at Regional Hospital.
