Delores attended country school at District #55 for eight years and graduated from Culbertson High School with the Class of 1949. She worked at Eat a Bit Café in Culbertson while attending classes, working nights and weekends. After graduation, she worked at Great Drug Store and Moffitt’s Café.
On December 30, 1951, Delores was united in marriage to Harold Arvene Gohl. To this union four children were born: Teresa, DeLynn, DeWayne and Debra.

After Harold retired, he and Delores moved to Culbertson.
