  Delrose Cheatham

Date of Birth: September 15, 1952
Position: Accountant

Delrose’s best quality was that she was a giving person; not only did she give of herself, but she gave of herself unselfishly, abundantly, without hesitation or concern of what it was taking out of her or costing her. She took care of everyone; she was everyone’s mother. So, it could be said that, in a way, she had many children, although, technically, those “children” included her parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws and many friends. To me, she wasn’t just my wife, but my best friend, my lover, my mentor and my heroine. She will be missed for her beauty, her wisdom, her love of Jehovah, of people and of life, and I will always love her.

  • Delrose was a very warm and caring person. I sat on the side of Delrose’s cube and got to know her through the wall. I would love it when she would speak Jamaican because my mom’s best friend was Jamaican and it would always bring back memories.

    When my mom passed away in January, Delrose was very compassionate and would always ask how I was doing. Then in June her beloved mother passed away and it was like we shared a common bond.

    Delrose, I know you are in a better place with your Mom and a lot of wonderful and kind people.

    May God Bless the Cheatham Family and know that Delrose is in my prayers. She may be gone, but definitely is not forgotten.

  • To the Cheatham family,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Delrose was a wonderful person, my only regret is that I never brought my mother’s homemade Jamaican buns for her to taste. She always brought me samples of Fendi perfume. I was extremely grateful as Fendi is one of my favorites, and now evertime I wear it, I will think of her.

  • Words cannot express the way I miss my breakfast buddy Delrose. Delrose was like my Greatest Aunt. She was loving, kind, funny and very intelligent. Every morning we would wait for each other to go get our “fresh” fruit and I would stand and watch her make her famous Columbian coffee that a relative used to get for her. She would share stories, beautiful stories of Bob and especially her Mother. After the loss of her mother, Delrose would always tear up with just the mere mention or thought of her. I know how she felt because I now feel the same way about Delrose.

    I used to tease her about her “extensive” shoe collection that matched every sophisticated ensemble she adorned. I also joked around with her about her “summer home” in Pennsylvania even though that was her residence – she was like a traveling wonder with 150% determination to be the glue for her family.

    We had so many laughs, cries, jokes – there is not enough space to write. She always made it a point to call me or visit me mid day just to vent or say hey – can’t you ever buy any real candy??

    To Mr. Cheatham and the entire Cheatham family, friends and relatives – my sincerest thoughts, prayers and eternal love are with you and my special friend – Delrose, forerver..

  • I would like the Cheatham family to know that my thoughts and prayers are with them. I didn’t get the chance to know Delrose for a very long time at Cantor, but the short time I did gave me the opportunity to know what a wonderful and generous person she was. Delrose always took the time to stop by to say hello. My sister lives one town away from Delrose in PA, and Delrose always invited me to come to her home whenever I was in town. Unfortunetly I never had the chance to take her up on this offer but I was always so grateful for the invitation. That was so sweet to invite me to her home, but that is the type of person she was. Delrose was the last person from Cantor that I got to talk to during my commute home on the day before everything happened and I am so thankful that I got to spend the time with her that I did chatting on the train all of the way home. I will keep that memory forever. Delrose may you rest in peace, God Bless.

  • My thoughts and prayers goes out to the Cheatham family…I’m so sorry for your loss.

  • I finally found the strength and courage to share my thoughts with the Cheatham family. Having lived in the same apartment complex in Flushing, NY you can basically say that we were neighbors. My heart goes out to the entire family especially Carlton (my big bother). Delrose, even though you are gone, you are definately not forgotten.

    May God bless the rest of the entire family members.

  • It’s been a while since I have been at the site, but something drew me back today. I went through the names and saw that Delrose was here. I miss her so much. On those days that were harder than most Delrose was always good to make me see the brighter side of things – to help me regain my focus. She is with her mother now and may she find peace.

  • “Aunt Del”, is missed and loved. She always laughed with such joy and her eyes always twinkled. My most vivid memory of Aunt Del is spending a family dinner (I think that it was Thanksgiving or Christmas) at Barbara’s house, she would always eat dessert first and dinner last. I remember her saying “Barbara! Where is your red velvet cake?” Delrose took a big piece of cake and a little plate with food from dinner. I must have been about 10 y.o. Delrose told us kids that she enjoyed sweets more than food, then she gave me a little piece of cake. “Shh, don’t tell Lorraina. Your mother will be mad at us”, and then we both giggled.
