Delma was born in Fannin Co., Tx to Thomas and Clara Mae (Garner) Lightfoot on November 22, 1936.

Together they worked operating Sonic Drive Inn and Krause's Kitchen in Cameron and he worked peddling ice cream and milk for Lilly Ice Cream.
Delma was a very unselfish lady, with strong values in family and her faith, always helping others in any way possible. She raised seven children which are John Krause of Rockdale, Marjorie Scott of Bryan, Harry and wife Teresa Krause of Bryan, Edwin and wife Rena Krause of Ruidoso, NM, Bernerd and wife Kimberly Krause of Bryan and Patrick and wife Tracy Krause also of Bryan.

She was also survived by a brother Thomas Lightfoot and two sisters Clarene Overall and Tommy Canon.
The way Delma enjoyed spending her time was quilting and painting. All of her children have some of her artwork. In her later years she truly enjoyed the slot machines at the casinos and was constantly asking her children "whoâ€™s going to take me to the casino"?
