Delores Ann Cantrall

1931 - 2021



Delores Ann Cantrall, a woman of deep faith, left this world to meet Jesus on March 28, 2021. She was born to Edward and Carrie Holan on the family farm near Winnetoon Nebraska on August 21, 1931.

After high school she taught at one room school houses in the area. She then attended Emmaus Bible School in Chicago where she met and later married Larry Cantrall. Their family expanded as Dan, Lois, and Bart were born. Delores was a member of Grace Bible Chapel and her life was spent in Christian ministry. She and Larry owned and operated Christian Nursery School, Christian Faith Academy, and Narrow Way Inn. Later Delores worked for Lois and then Bart at Bonanza Steak House and ended her working years at St. John’s Hospital. She volunteered at Washington Street Mission by playing the piano and reaching out to those in need. She also led Bible Study with a group of close friends.

Delores was preceded in death by her husband Larry, her son Dan, and brother Dale Holan. She is survived by her daughter Lois (Bill) Moore, son Bart (Debbie) Cantrall, daughter in law Edna Cantrall, 6 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.

Delores’ family wish to express their gratitude for all the kindness expressed to them during this time and invite all to join them in a Celebration of Life Service at Grace Bible Chapel, 3335 Woodhaven Dr. Springfield, ILL.

Delores was like a mother to me when I was a young mother of 3 small children. I met her at Christian Nursery School and she became a wonderful mentor and example of how a Christian woman should live. Iā€™m a better person for having known her! God bless her family as they walk this path of loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers. šŸ™
