Delza Longman was a longtime supporter of the World Federalist Movement - Canada. In 2012 World Federalists from around the world gathered for a conference at the University of Winnipeg. Delza helped with the organization of that meeting. Following our wrap-up Board meeting someone spotted a portrait of a younger Delza among the rows of faculty photos (mostly men, ... plus Delza) along the walls of the hall outside the room where we met. We all had fun taking pictures of ourselves, alongside 2 Delzas -- the portrait on the university wall ( younger, same funny glasses, same radiant smile), and Delza circa 2012, still active in her early 90s. She was clearly proud of her university career and comfortable in the university milieu.

Delza was a lively woman with a wide range of interests. This made her a great conversationalist - there were no awkward silences when Delza was around!
Many of her stories are included in her little book “A Family Story.”
I have included a photo below.

It is sad that Delza has died, but she led a life that was extraordinary in quality and length. She was a great conversationalist, and many of her stories are recorded in her little book, “A Family Story.” It was our pleasure to have known her for 40 years.
