Delores Jewel Cowdrey (D.J.), 55 of Fort Worth, TX left this world,
peacefully in her sleep, to be with the Lord on Tuesday November
1, 2016. She was born November 7, 1960, in Louisiana to the late
Edward and Ramona Brannon.
D.J. will be remembered by her family and friends as an amazing
woman who loved to do wood work and yard work. She thoroughly
enjoyed her profession as a Journeyman Electrician for over three
decades. She was funny and outgoing. DJ loved her children,
nieces, nephews, and grandchildren with all her heart. She made
the best sweet tea, cooked a mean potato soup, and was an avid
animal lover. She was a huge supporter of Breast Cancer
Awareness. She beat the disease twice herself, and that was just a
small testament of her toughness. She was a straight shooter and
you never had to guess what was on her mind because she had no
problem telling you. People like her don’t come around too often.
She was truly one of a kind and will be missed dearly by all that
She was preceded in death by both her parents Edward and
