Born May 28, 1951, in Logan, she was a daughter of the late Rev. Arville and Mary Ruth Browning.
Delana was a life long member of the Monahill Memorial Freewill Baptist Church where she faithfully served her Lord by teaching Sunday School, praying for the sick, and actively taking part in all church activities. She retired after 40 years of employment of which the last 18 years were at Dr. S.C. Bhanots office in Stollings.

She will be sadly missed by all who were ever blessed to have known her.
