Jessica Rosa Delo

Jessica Rosa Delo, age 20, of Loyal, died on Wednesday, Sept. 24 in the Palliative Care Unit at St. Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield.

Jessica was born April 18, 1983 in Marshfield, the daughter of Clar and Margie (Degenhardt) Delo. She was raised and educated in Loyal, graduating from Loyal High School in 2001. Jessica was attending U.W. Whitewater with a major in political science, intending to be a lobbyist for children's rights. Jessica had many interests, including computer research, traveling, political discussion, shopping, and all kinds of music, but especially enjoyed Reba McEntire.

Jessica touched countless lives with her grace, beauty, and charm. All who were fortunate enough to know her, loved her. She was courageous, considerate, intelligent, and profound. This delicate flower, taken from us before full bloom, will be missed beyond words. She was her mother's breath and the very beat of her father's heart.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Roman and Nancy Degenhardt; two aunts, Doris and Cheryl Delo; and one uncle, Rich Delo.

Funeral services were held on Sunday, Sept. 28, at the United Methodist Church in Loyal with Rev. Wendell Williams officiating. Burial was in the Loyal City Cemetery. casketbearers were Ronald Alvarez, Joe Aumann, Scott Beatty, Darrell Cordes, Jim Nayes, Douglas Seefeld, Gary Skaya, and Douglas Wright.
