Obituary for Delores A Baranek

Delores Abbey (Salter) Baranek was the fifth child of eight, born to Amelia and Fredrick Salter on February 11,1932 in West Hollywood California. In her early childhood Delores, or Abbey as her family and friends called her, grew up in the town of La Cañada-Flintridge next to the San Gabriel mountains. She would tell stories of walking up and down the steep hillside roads to go swimming or to school and she also talked about the antics of her older brothers. Delores’ father, a civil engineer, accepted a new job and moved his family to the outskirts of Nevada City. It was a home amongst the pine trees, steep mountain roads and lots of snow in winter. Delores graduated from Nevada City High School in 1950 where she was the art editor for the school yearbook, The Quill, and the school newspaper, the Searchlight. The family moved once again to Sacramento, Delores found employment at McClellan Air Force Base as a civilian clerical worker. There she met William (Bill) Baranek; a WWII veteran working a civilian position with shipping and receiving. Bill and Delores were married in 1955, and together built their first home on land Bill purchased from his parents. Eventually there would be 3 Baranek families residing as neighbors in Orangevale. Delores and Bill had 3 children, each a year apart. During these busy family years there was a constant flow of laundry so Bill installed and extra long clothesline to accommodate all the clothes! In her leisure time Delores enjoyed sewing clothing and toys. She was quick at filling in spaces on a crossword puzzle or fitting together the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Delores also enjoyed decorating the family home during holidays. She was a fantastic baker and cook. With a large orchard just outside her door, there were always fresh baked pies, canned fruit and jellies. She could expertly pack up a picnic lunch for a family day trip to the mountains. Delores also loved to spend time in her flower gardens, the roses her favorite and maintained a large vegetable garden as well. When Bill passed away in 1973, Delores sold the property and briefly resided in Citrus Heights before settling in Roseville. She went to work at Cable Data Billing Services as a clerical clerk until her retirement. She devoted a significant amount of time providing care to her youngest child Paul, who passed in 2004. After selling her Roseville home, Delores downsized, choosing to live in a senior apartment complex where she enjoyed bird and wildlife watching. She especially enjoyed feeding the hummingbirds that appeared ever present on her patio. She collected unusual decorative watering cans and beautiful angel figurines that were gifts of affection from her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. In 2014 she made Lincoln Meadows Care Center her home where she continued her passion of keeping track of the Pope’s travels and what he was doing. She delighted in eating strawberry ice cream or other treats brought to her by family members and sitting outside in the care center’s gazebo when family and friends visited. Delores enjoyed opportunities to go out on a car ride, traveling to a family member’s home or just to see the sights, especially during the holidays. Delores was preceded in death by her husband William Baranek; her son, Paul Baranek; her granddaughter, Eunice Baranek; and her siblings; sister, Kate Shaw; brothers, Fred Salter, David Salter and Bill Salter. Delores is survived by her daughter, Diana (Jack) Allen of Lincoln, CA and her son, Edward (Nancy) Baranek of Magalia, CA.
