ObituaryShare A Memory

Carole Mary DeLong, 75, passed away peacefully at home on November 7, 2017 after a short battle with cancer. She was born in Portland, OR on February 28, 1942 but spent most of her life in Yakima. 

 
Carole retired from the Yakima School District after working for nearly 30 years as a Paraprofessional, with most of that time spent working in school libraries, as was fitting given her lifetime love of books and reading.  That love of reading continues on in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.     
 
She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Frank DeLong, and children, Sharlese (Daniel) Vellinga, Victor (Bibiana) DeLong, and Margaret DeLong, all of Yakima, as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her children, Tambi Brazzell and Daniel DeLong.
 
An informal Celebration of Life Service is planned for Saturday, November 18, 2017 at 1:00PM at the Gardner Hall (204 S. 46th Avenue) in Yakima. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you bring a children’s book to the service to be donated to the elementary school where Carole worked prior to her retirement.
