Mrs. Delphia Skeens Looney, age 83, went to her eternal home on Monday, April 11, 2022.
Delphia was born June 6, 1938, on Stiltners Creek in Buchanan County, a daughter of the late Linkous and Maggie (Stiltner) Skeens. A longtime resident of Washington County since 1974, she enjoyed cooking, gardening, and sewing. She cooked countless meals and ensured that no one ever left her house hungry. She was proud of her gardens and put one out every spring for the last sixty years. Delphia had many hobbies and interests, but there was nothing more special to her than spending time with her family and making sure they were taken care of.
Mrs. Looney was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Willard Looney; parents, Linkous & Maggie (Stiltner) Skeens; son, Timothy Looney; and 14 brothers and sisters.
Left to cherish her memory are her children, Terry Looney, Debra Hawkins (David), Kathy O’Quinn (Jimmy); grandchildren, Jason Wachob (Dru), Randi Wachob, and Matt Snodgrass (Hillary); great-grandson, Hunter Wachob; and many nieces and nephews.
The family wishes to acknowledge the outstanding care she received from the nurses and staff from Ballad Health home care and hospice.
