Delores Carter, 87, of Mount Carmel, Illinois, formerly of Rantoul, Illinois, passed away Saturday, December 12, 2020 at the home of her son.  She was born on November 15, 1933 in Perry, New York, the daughter of Charles X. and Mary (Wretrzgkawska) Barthelemy. Delores was proud of her up-bringing having been born and raised in Perry, New York.  After moving to the Midwest, she was employed in the Rantoul, Illinois school system.  She enjoyed her work in the St. Malachy School cafeteria.  In her spare time Delores enjoyed bowling, gardening, crafts and watching Hallmark Christmas movies.  She also liked playing games and cards with family and friends and would often spend time fishing.  Even when her health failed her, Delores always had a smile.  She was a devoted Catholic who enjoyed spending time reading her Bible.  She had a sweet soul and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.   Delores will be remembered by her three sons, Chuck (Phyllis) Esserine of New Mexico, Ron (Arlene) Esserine of Rantoul, IL, Shane (Christy Ingram) Carter of Mount Carmel, IL; two daughters, Carol (Bob) Swinson of Sevierville, TN, Janet (Steve) Huser of Sevierville, TN; thirteen grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews. Delores was preceded in death by her parents; sisters, Gloria Ross, Janice Webster; one great-granddaughter, Abigail Garrett. In keeping with Delores’ wishes, cremation rites will take place with a Memorial Service to be held at a later date.   Keepes Funeral Home is serving the family with the arrangements.  To view Delores’ tribute wall and leave condolences for the Carter family, please visit
