Delois was educated in the schools of Nottoway County and was a graduate of Luther H. Foster High School. She was also a graduate of Allen’s Beauty School, Crewe, VA. She honed her craft and became an excellent beautician. She was employed at Craddock Terry Shoe Company for many years. Delois’ love of children led her to become a teacher’s aide at A.G. Richardson Elementary School and at Blackstone Elementary School.
