Della Parent, age 78, of Somerset, Wis., died on Monday, March 3, at The Gathering in Stillwater, Minn.
She was born on Aug. 12, 1935, in Centuria, Wis., to Allan & Ruth (Heisley) Alwin.
Della's passions in life were her family, friends, and of course, golf. All her life she worked very hard and was proud of her accomplishments, three children, five grandchildren, mastering the game of golf, canning veggies, making dinner rolls, and maintaining an awesome yard and flower gardens.
She will be most remembered as a loving, free-spirited person who never gave up the fight and would do most anything to win the battle.
