December 13, 1927 - July 30, 2021
Delta Lea (Howell) Bratcher, age 93, of Live Oak went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 30, 2021. She was born on December 13, 1927, to Austin and Gracie (Francis) Howell. In 1946, she married John Bratcher who preceded her in death in 1992. Delta was most known for her commitment to Biblical principles and following Jesus. She believed in the goodness of people and was always willing to sacrificially help others. Her life was a living example of Ephesians 4:32 "…be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you." Delta was rarely idle. Besides reading the Bible, her favorite pastimes were quilting and gardening. Her garden, loaded with both flowers and vegetables, was a great source of comfort. She enjoyed sitting in the shade of the tree admiring its beauty. She adored raising chickens and felt immensely blessed when visitors would accept free eggs. She also highly valued family and friends. She cherished each family member, was devoted to her children and was a loving grandmother. Delta is survived by four children, Janet (John) Engler. Dwight Bratcher, Cheryl (Don) Roads, and Corey Bratcher; 11 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren, 11 great-great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Delta also has surviving family created through blended families - 3 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild. These are her "bonus family." She loved each one as if they were biological. Delta was preceded in death by her husband, John Bratcher; daughter, Karen Garrett; granddaughter, Samantha Robinson; 2 sisters, and 5 brothers. The viewing will be on Sunday, August 22, 2021, from 1-3 PM, and service on Monday, August 23, 2021, 10 AM, at Ullrey Memorial Chapel.
