Della Mae Brockel was born Feb. 7, 1937, the daughter of Edgar and Clemmie Ammons in Waldron, Ark. After attending grade school in Arkansas, she moved with her family to Baker and graduated from Baker High School in 1955.

Della’s fancy red coat caught the eye of Duane Brockel at the First Baptist Church in 1956, and he became the love of her life. March 21, 1956, Della and Duane were married in the same church they met at. To this union three children were born, Brent, Gay and Jill. Being a mother and raising their children was her greatest pleasure. She started her working career at Mountain Bell Telephone Office then went on to be a nurse’s aide at the Baker hospital. In 1975, Della started working as a law enforcement dispatcher. She retired in 1996.

Della was a lifelong member of the First Baptist Church in Baker. She served 20 plus years as a church clerk, she was a member of Mission Circle and choir. She was also active in Homemakers Club. She really enjoyed her Bible studies with the ladies. Her hobbies included sewing, cooking, baking, flower gardening, canning and decorating their home for all holidays. She was also an avid reader and loved doing crossword puzzles.

Survivors include her husband, Duane of Baker; three children, Brent (Karen) of Baker, Gay (Jon) Schelling of Gillette, Wyo., Jill (Perry) Butcher of Billings; seven grandchildren, Rachel (Dustin) Logan, Laker (fiance Rachel VanderVoort) Brockel, Kelcie Schelling, Jayde Schelling, Nathan Schelling, Devin Butcher, and Keara Butcher; one great-grandchild, Arriauna Logan; two sisters, Melba (Roger) Losing of Miles City, and Gayle Bottoms of Malvern, Ark.; numerous nieces and nephews.
