Obituary of Myrtle Delores English
Myrtle Delores English, age 77, of Cassopolis, died peacefully Friday, May 17, 2019 in the comfort of her family’s presence.
She was born April 8, 1942 in Niles, Michigan to Ezekiel and Mable Sinclair.
Delores was a hard working lady who loved her family. Her two boys were all she talked about until the grandchildren and great grandchildren came along. She also had a special relationship with her daughter in law, Doris Sinclair, who was by her side to the very end.
Delores was looking for love and found it in 1979 when she became a member of Christ Temple Church in Cassopolis. She served as an usher, devotion leader, sang in the choir, and never missed a service unless she had to work or help family. She loved her church family along with playing cards. Her favorite game was Ski Bo, but the worst part of it was her laugh when she was winning. Delores’ favorite movies were “Shaft” and “The Jerk.” Her favorite singer was Michael Jackson. The family sincerely thanks Elder David Johnson, Pastor of Christ Temple Church, for the care that he and his family gave to Delores.
Delores will be greatly missed by family and friends. She is survived by two sons, Marshall (Doris) Sinclair of Kalamazoo, Timothy Sinclair of Cassopolis; four grandchildren, Makiah Sinclair, Nakiela Sinclair, Maurice Sinclair, Jazmynn Sinclair; three great grandchildren, Leara Sinclair, Tyree Sinclair, Jayce Shaffer; seven sisters, Darlene (Alonzo) Glover, Beverly Pompey, Marcia (Isiah) Suggs, Donna Goodwin, Donna (Ronnie) White, Mary (William) Rockett, Sharon (Ronald) Broussard; two brothers, Ricky (Cindy) Sinclair, Robert (Linda) Sinclair; and a host of nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; biological father, Elmer Walden; one sister, Debora Moore; two brothers, Jimmy Walden, Junior Walden; and two brothers in infancy.
Family and friends will gather Saturday, May 25, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. until time of service at 11:00 a.m. in Church of Cassopolis, 520 Pearl Street, Cassopolis, with the Reverend David Johnson officiating.
Ms. English will be laid to rest in Prospect Hill Cemetery in Cassopolis, Michigan.
