Sorority remembers sister

POSTED: April 27, 2009 3:45 p.m.
In keeping with the tradition of planting trees on Arbor Day, several members of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Hinesville Alumnae Chapter, planted a white oak tree at Baconton Missionary Baptist church in memory of Deloris P. Gaulden, who died Oct. 17.
The white oak was donated by Keep Liberty County Beautiful Director Sara Ann Swida, who described some of the tree’s characteristics. The tree grows to be 50-80 feet tall and can live for centuries, becoming more picturesque with age.
The Rev. Hermon Scot, pastor of Baconton, spoke at the tree planting ceremony, remembering Gaulden as a diligent church worker. He thanked the sorority for planning the event.
Several church members and family members of Gaulden attended, including her daughter Crystal, sister Barbara Jackson, uncle John Barnard, aunt Charity Barnard and her chosen granddaughter, Karen Baker.
Sorority members who attended were Yovancha Lewis-Samuels, Sarah Stevens, Crystal Gaulden, Rose Mullice, Yvonne Woods, Mary Brok and Sarah Curtis.
