Delbert G. Israelson

July 13, 1945-November 14, 2014

“Don’t look ’neath the gates of pearl

Don’t look on the streets of gold

Don’t look by the walls of jasper

Nor among the many sites untold

For I’ve been longing and I’ve been waiting

For the precious holy one to see

There I’ll be through the countless ages

Look for me at Jesus’ feet.” (Squire E. Parsons Jr.)

It is with great sorrow, yet future hope of seeing him again at the feet of Jesus, that we say goodbye (for now) to Delbert Israelson—beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle.

Del is lovingly remembered by his wife, Sharon Israelson; his four children: Tracy (Rick) Mader, Bradley (Stephanie) Israelson, Paul (Tammy) Israelson, Tara (Mike) Tisdall; his two stepdaughters: Deborah (Doug) Klassen and Peggy (Stephen) Friesen; his 19 grandchildren; his brother Milton (Jan) Israelson; his sister Marilyn (Gary) Teare as well as numerous nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his parents, George and Edith Israelson.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Delbert at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, November 24, 2014 at the Armstrong Bible Chapel (2145 Rosedale Avenue, Armstrong, BC). In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the North Okanagan Valley Gleaners Society ( Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family at
