Delois Petigo West

January 17, 1938 — January 26, 2023

Tupelo—Delois Petigo West, 85, of the Ballardsville Community died Thursday, January 27, 2023 at the North Mississippi Medical Center after a brief illness. She was born in Fulton on January 17, 1938, the daughter of Andrew Jackson “Jack” Petigo and Sallie Mae Roberts Petigo. Always a caretaker, Delois worked for many years as a Certified Nursing Assistant. She was a fierce protector of everyone she loved. She was a dedicated and loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She loved taking care of her babies, and they were all hers if she knew them. Flowers were a passion for her and many of her friends and family were gifted flowers from her expansive garden. Being only a few days younger than him and growing up in Mississippi, she was an avid Elvis fan. Her favorite collectibles were Elvis memorabilia.
Delois leaves behind her children, Jacky West of Tupelo, Michael E. West of Madison, Alabama, Rebecca Willard (James) of Fulton, Michael A. West (Renee) of Belden, Zachary West (Ashley) of Winfield, Alabama, Casey Gray (Marcus) of Fulton, and De’Anna Baugh (Jake) of Amory; grandchildren, Channing (Hannah), Breña, Kayden, Izzy, Ike, Heidi, Serinity, Savannah, Rylan, Kameron, Lauren, Josiah, Gabriel, Mila, Georgia, Ethan, and Athena; great-grandchildren, Aiden and Chyler; and her brother, Dewey Petigo.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her siblings, Hoover, Lura, Ruby, Ruble, Lucille, Lavanie, Andrew, Connie, Kenneth, T.J., Junior, and Derrell; an infant son; and a granddaughter, Summer Renae.
The family will honor Delois’ life with a memorial service at 2 p.m. Tuesday, January 31, 2023 at the Jefferson Street Chapel of Pegues. Visitation will be 12 p.m. until service time Tuesday at Pegues, Tupelo.
