Deloris “Dee” Arguello
1945-2024

Deloris “Dee” Arguello, 78, passed away on June 9, 2024 in Wichita. Dee was born August 15, 1945 in Nebraska. She was born one of 7 sisters and twin to her best friend Doris. Her family moved several times and she lived in Nebraska, Kansas, Wyoming and her beloved Colorado, which was her very favorite. She was preceded in death by her father Chet (John) and mother, Leona; sisters Judy and Vesta, and her husband Hank.

Survivors include her son, Rikki, daughter-in-law, Crystal and granddaughter Keira Arguello; sisters Doris, Joye, Barbara, and Jean, and many nieces, nephews and family in Colorado. Dee was a committed VA employee serving at multiple hospitals over her 30 years of service and was an avid advocate for Veterans. Dee was full of love and dedicated to all of her family and friends. Her family was her world and over the years she spent many hours with sisters, nieces and nephews loving on them. She was the fun Aunt who took her nieces and nephews on road trips and drives in her car. She was there when any of them needed help. Dee’s son, Rikki, was her whole world, and her granddaughter Keira was the love of her life and apple of her eye. Dee very much enjoyed being Keira’s Grandma and was excellent at the role. The two crafted, watched movies, listened to music and played games during their visits. There has never been a better Grandma. Dee had a very competitive spirit and loved to spend time playing games with friends and family; she was an ace Farkle player. Recently Keira introduced Dee to diamond art. Dee loved this hobby and she spent hours making pictures for friends and family. Dee loved to see others happy and it was one more way she could show the people that she cared that she loved them. The Rocky Mountains–the place where she felt most at home–have called to her eternal peace.

In lieu of flowers, and because seeing children happy brought Dee so much joy in her life, the family would like to encourage donations to the Make-A-Wish Foundation (Kansas/Missouri chapter) in her name.
