Delila Gertrude Scheid was born on February 17, 1927 and died September 18, 2022 at the Prairie County Nursing Home in Terry, Montana.

Delila was born at Crow Rock, Montana to Christina and Ludwig Naasz. She lived there until 1947 when they sold the farm and moved to Terry. She went to work at Youngs Bar and Café and said if it had not been for Shirley Lampe, she never would have learned how to be a waitress. Over the years she worked for all the people who owned Youngs.

Delila waited tables, worked at the post office and for 24 years at the laundry at the Prairie County Nursing Home in Terry.

Delila was a 66 year member to the Terry American Legion Auxiliary and Trinity Lutheran Church.
