Delores D. “Dee” Pope, of Sharon, Pennsylvania, transitioned with her sunset on Wednesday, May 10, 2023, in the Sharon Regional Hospital, while surrounded by the love of her family, following a brief illness. She was 80.
Her sunrise was April 24, 1943, in Sharon, a daughter to George L. & Hasseltine (Adams) Carter.
She was a 1961 graduate from Sharon High School. She had worked as a dietary clerk for Sharon Regional Hospital, where she dedicated over 40 years of service to her craft.
Dee was a proud member of the Second Baptist Church. She served in many capacities for her Lord and Savior such as: Church Clerk since 1960, sang in the choir, faithfully on the kitchen and missionary committees, as well as a Sunday School Teacher. She absolutely LOVED her church! However, her grandchildren meant the world to her.
In her spare time, she enjoyed playing Word Cookies on her phone, shopping, and garage sales.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Terry Carter; and brother-in-law, Jesse Jennings.
