The Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, called Alice L. Delk to enter the gates of heaven. Alice L. Delk was born to the late Alice and Turner Hines in Edgecombe County, NC. At a time in her life Alice accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. She was a member of Trinity Baptist Church in Chesapeake, VA. She was the middle child out of seven children. At an early part of her life she was raised on a farm where she learned how to raise chickens and grow all kinds of vegetables which is how she developed the love of cooking. After "Aunt Alice" as we all called her became an adult she decided to leave North Carolina and move to Virginia where she met the late James Delk and later married. Later she moved to New York and gave birth to her son Earl Frank. Some years later she gave birth to her daughter Charlene R. Banks. During her time in New York she worked at a Florist Shop. Soon after she started working for the Board of Education as a Lunchroom Helper. Later she was promoted to a Dietician (Head Cook) in the Public School J. H. S. 45 where she worked 25 plus years. "Aunt Alice" loved and enjoyed cooking. for family and friends. She was a very outspoken person. "Aunt Alice" would feed you and give you a place to sleep, but you were definitely going to hear her mouth (opinion). "Aunt Alice" retired and moved back to Virginia in 2003 where she purchased a home in Chesapeake. She went to join her late sisters Josephine Person, Bernice Parker and Elnora Barnes, her late brother James Hines and her late son Earl Frank. "Aunt Alice" leaves behind beautiful memories that we will cherish forever. She leaves behind her dearest daughter Charlene R. Banks who loved her with all she had in her. She also leaves to cherish her memories, her two living sisters, Fannie P. Tuck, Lina Mae Atkinson, eight grandchildren, Earl S. Seegars, Deron Hines, of New York, Cinnamon Williams of PA, Avanti Williams of GA, Taniya Bryant and Dominique N. Ortiz, Ronald Lynch, and Imani Lynch of VA. A host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Dab My deepest sympathy to your family. Please know that others care and that the God of all comfort(Psalm 83:18)is near the brokenhearted, Psalm 34:18.
