Delaphine “Della” (Rogers) Feil

September 16, 1926 ~ May 23, 2012

Delaphine “Della” Feil passed from this life peacefully at home on May 23, 2012, after a long battle with illness. She will be remembered as a longtime resident of the Wenatchee Valley by many who met her during her nearly 40 years managing the Feil Fruit Stand in Baker’s Flat. Delaphine Rogers entered this world September 16, 1926, as the third of four daughters born to Dorothy May Moser and husband, Owther Lee Rogers in Wiseman, AR. Delaphine grew up in Wiseman and graduated from Violet Hill High School, where she was an active member of the basketball team. In her senior year, she helped her team win the state championship. Her name is memorialized at the school with all other alumni. She met her first husband, William Warren Langston, in Wiseman and they married in 1946. They welcomed their son, Larry, on September 30, 1947. The family moved to Wenatchee when Larry was a toddler. Warren took a position at Montgomery Ward and Della embarked on a career as a checker at the old downtown Safeway. After her husband’s early death in 1959, Delaphine briefly relocated back to Arkansas. Returning to Wenatchee, she resumed her career, this time at the old south end Safeway. Della was an avid bowler and was a member of the Women’s League in Wenatchee. It was at the bowling lanes that she met her second husband, Jack O. Feil. Delaphine and Jack married in 1963, and welcomed their son, Robin, on January 18, 1964. The same year, she began working at the Feil Fruit Stand, which she later managed. She and her husband continued to bowl together for the next two decades. She retired as full-time manager of the fruit stand in 2002. Throughout their 48 year marriage, Delaphine and Jack took pleasure in the simple things, like eating out and spending time with each other and their children. She liked to take trips. She often traveled with her husband to bowling tournaments, to Reno for fun, or back to Arkansas to visit her mother, her sisters and her extended family, where she was affectionately known as Phine. Della was always happy to take a day trip with her son, Larry, simply to keep him company and stay involved in his life. She loved playing cards and games with friends and family. She also stayed a true sports enthusiast, following both college and professional teams on television. Della was devoted to her family, especially her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She actively rejoiced in their personal, academic and professional achievements. She was very close to her sisters and her two very “special sisters,” her niece, Sue Forbes, and her first cousin, Willene Gaston. Della received great joy from spending time with her family. She loved celebrating birthdays and holidays, surrounded by as many family members as possible. As her family, we will remember her for many different reasons, including her oatmeal, her coupons, her spunk, her amazing fruit pies, her keen strategy at the pinochle table, her smile, her laughter, and her cute southern sayings. Mostly, we will miss her love and support.

Delaphine was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband; and her two older sisters, Avis Bobbitt and Anna Lee Hailey. She is survived by her husband, Jack; her son, Larry Langston and wife, Lynelle of Leavenworth; her son, Robin Feil and his wife, Andrea of Wenatchee; her granddaughter, Kimberly Langston of Leavenworth; her grandson, Kortney Langston and wife, Jenae of Camas, WA; her great-grandchildren, Kellie, Ryan, Karter and Harper, all of Camas, WA; her younger sister, Evelyn Bond and husband, Forrest of Williamsburg, KS; and numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.

A Memorial Service will be held for Della on Wednesday, May 30, 2012, at 11:00 a.m. at Telford’s Chapel of the Valley on Grant Road. An Interment Service will follow at Evergreen Memorial Park. Memorial donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association or Central Washington Hospital Hospice. Arrangements are by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
