Delores loved baking and cooking, cross-stitching, quilting, growing flowers and houseplants, word search puzzles, church, country music, and most of all spoiling and loving her grandchildren.

Delores Mae was raised in Swea City, IA and later moved to Forest City, IA where she graduated high school and worked at a cafe until she met and married Lyle Bagne. Lyle and Delores had two children before moving to rural Baudette, where they started a farm with crops and cattle. Lyle and Delores then completed their family with two more children. Lyle and Delores then quit farming and moved to a house in Baudette where they lived happily, raising their children.

Delores worked as a baker and cook at a local restaurant until she decided to further her career and became the Head Dietician and Cook at the old Care Center. She loved making big, delicious meals and desserts for her family and for church functions. She was a member of the First Congregational Church in Baudette and was an active member of the Ladies Aid Church Group for many years.  Delores will be remembered most for her love of her family and friends, and her hard work and dedication to living the best life she could.

Delores was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She is preceded in death by Harvey and Blanche Hosier (parents) and her beloved husband Lyle Augustine Bagne. Lyle and Delores were married for 46 wonderful years until Lyle’s passing on February 29, 1998.

Delores is survived by her sister Pat Showalter of Paulline, IA, daughter Julie (David) Poole of Baudette, MN, Gary (Mary Wilson) Bagne of Williams, MN,  son David (Brianna Nowell) Bagne of Glendale, AZ, daughter Laura Durham of Warroad, MN, grandchildren Emily, Carl, Levi, Cody, Cheyanne, Wyatt, Christopher, and Joshua, great-grandchildren Lillian and Jesse, many nieces and nephews and great-nieces and nephews. Delores was a 56 resident of this area and will be missed by so many who dearly loved her.

After her husband’s death and some health issues, Delores sold their home and moved into The Arc in Baudette, MN and lived there until her recent death. Delores and her family are grateful for the excellent care she was given while she lived at The Arc. The second family she gained there will miss her gentle and loving soul greatly.
