Delores Draxton


Delores (Halverson) Draxton (92), beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother peacefully took her last breath on Aug. 9, 2019 at Koronis Manor in Paynesville and is reunited with the love of her life Erle A. Draxton (d. Aug. 9, 2011 in Glenwood). They grew up in Litchfield, raised their family in Hopkins and  after many years working together side by side in their business Draxton Sales, they retired in Glenwood on the farm and later the lake. Delores is survived by her 3 children, Gail Larson, Dean Draxton (Vicki), and Joan Nevitt. She also cherished her 8 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren. We all benefited from the love you showed us. Dearest mom, we love you and as you wanted, you can finally “be with Dad.” She was preceded in death by her parents Lillie and George Halverson of Litchfield, 5 siblings and husband, Erle. A family celebration of life will take place at Camp Ripley Veteran’s Cemetery in Little Falls at a later date. Special thanks to the staff at Stearns Place, Koronis Manor, and Heartland Hospice of Paynesville who loved and cared for her these past 5 years. Mom’s request is that any Memorials be made in Dad’s name to the University of Minnesota Alzheimer’s Research at
