Delores Mabel Neubauer, 93, Owatonna, obituary

Delores Mabel Neubauer, 93, of Owatonna, died on Wednesday, April 10, 2024 at Birchwood Cottages.

She was born July 7, 1930 in Aurora Township to Dominik and Mathilda (Hammann) Moravec. Delores attended country school while helping on the family farm and then worked for Owatonna Canning Company.

She met Marvin Neubauer, and on January 24, 1954, the couple was married at the old St. John Lutheran Church on State Avenue in Owatonna.

Delores loved to read, cross-stitch, crochet, and complete her various puzzles. She was always tending to her big garden on the farm and baking or cooking a delicious meal for her family. Delores was a member of the St. John’s Fellowship Club and the Ladies Aid. You wouldn’t dare call her when she was watching the Wheel of Fortune or listening to the Party Line on KRFO. Most of all, Delores loved to spend quality time with her family and will be missed by all who knew her.
