She was born February 21, 1942 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas to the late Richard S. and Ruth Laney Peek. Delanne was a member at McAdenville Baptist Church and a long-time prior member of Woodlawn Baptist Church. Delanne had a passion for Southern Gospel Music and attended many concerts over the years, as a matter of fact she became known as the “chocolate lady” to the quartets. She would always take them some of the best chocolate fudge ever made. She always had a special place in her heart for babies. Most of all though, she loved her Lord and Savior and her family.
