SHALLOTTE — Delorese Hewett, 79, born May 21, 1938, made her heavenly journey Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017, while under the loving care of the staff of Lower Cape Fear Hospice.

Preceded in death by her father, Thomas Marion Hewett Sr.; mother, Ruby Hewett; and brother, Thomas Marion Hewett Jr., Delorese is survived by sisters, Joyce Whaley (Preston) and Pat Williams; and special nieces and nephews, Lisa Babson, Carolyn Whaley, Mitchell Whaley, Bradley Whaley, Joseph Babson, Faith Babson, Diane Sellers and Abby Woodell.

Known to those closest to her as “Sissy,” she was known for her love of any sort of collectible figurines, pennies, marbles, pocket knives and Santa Clause. She left an impression on everyone she encountered and was loved dearly by all of her family. The family asks for your prayers as they grieve an integral part of their family. Heaven and earth may separate us today, but nothing will change the fact that we’ll meet again one sweet day.

“My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26.

Services will be held at 1 p.m., Friday, Nov. 24, with visitation one hour prior, at Brunswick Funeral Service, Shallotte, with the Rev. Raymond F. (Ray) Faircloth Sr. officiating. Pallbearers include Bradley Whaley, Mitchell Whaley, Joseph Babson, Kasey Whaley, Carl Hewett and James Allen Hewett.
