Deloris Ann Konkel, 82, of Holmen and formerly of Arcadia/Dodge, died on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at her Hearten House home under the care of Mayo Clinic Hospice.
Deloris was born on November 29, 1938, in Dodge, to Joseph F. and Helen (Susa) Jaszewski. After graduating from Arcadia High School, Deloris was united in marriage to John Konkel, Sr. on April 22, 1958, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Pine Creek.

Her lighthearted personality, love of animals (especially her cat, Poopsie), and deep faith will be forever cherished by her family.
