Deilah Field, 72, of Connersville passed from this earth to be with the Lord in the company of her loving family on Thursday evening, December 31, 2020 at I.U. Health – University Hospital, Indianapolis after a lengthy illness.
One of twelve children of Clarence and Lucille Wilkerson LeGere, Delilah was born on September 19, 1948 and was a graduate of Laurel High School.
Delilah was a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Her home and kitchen were open to all. Family gatherings at the holidays were always joyous and lively. Those she included as her family extended far beyond the bounds of relation. There was nothing she enjoyed more than preparing the large family meals at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Serving her signature dish of chicken and dumplings was looked forward to by all.
She was an accomplished seamstress and loved making baby blankets and Halloween costumes for the children.
Rarely in life will you meet a soul as kind, loving, and selfless as the one we all knew and loved so well.
Those of us who knew and loved her will miss her dearly and cannot express the feelings of sadness and loss in words.
Survivors include her husband of 27 years, James Field; a daughter, Shonda Campbell; two granddaughters, Brittney (Joey) Cloyd and Chelsea (Cole) Ging; a grandson, Hunter Campbell; three great-grandsons, Knox Cloyd, Graham Ging, and Axel Campbell; four brothers, Richard LeGere of Arlington, Robert E. LeGere and John LeGere both of Connersville, Billy Sr. (Denise) LeGere of Connersville; a sister-in-law, Judy LeGere of Arlington; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Besides her parents, Delilah was preceded in death by two brothers, Jackie Albert LeGere, and Clarence LeGere; three sisters, Norma J. “Jeanie” LeGere Collins, Betty M. Legere Parrett, and Marilyn LeGere Bowles Gabbard; and two infant brothers, Donald and Michael LeGere.
Family and friends may call from 11:00 a.m. until the time of service at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 7, 2020 at Miller, Moster, Robbins Funeral Home. Pastor David Joseph will officiate. Burial will follow in Cemetery.
