Territorial Women's Memorial Rose Garden
DORA CORDELIA LEACH ROSENBLATT WALKER
Dora, known as Delia, was born on April 19,1883, in North Park, Colorado, the daughter of Dora Morton and Irving Leach. She married Paul (known as Pete) Peter Gerhardt Rosenblatt on June 1, 1904, in Providence, Arizona. They came to Prescott to live at 118 Garden Street. Samuel Hill Hardware, where Pete worked, presented them with the first range carried in the store.

Delia and Peter had five daughters: Pauline (Mrs. Howard) Tovrea, Bertha (Mrs. T. C.) Boone, Louise (Mrs. Cecil) Lynch, Jennie Maye (Mrs. John R.) Bell Jr., and Dora (Mrs. Joe) Heap. Her son, P. G., became a judge in Prescott.

Following the death of Rosenblatt, the management of the Prescott Metal Products Company at the corner of Gurley and Granite Streets was carried on by his widow who learned to design and to bid on sheet metal jobs for tanks and troughs for cattle ranchers.

In May 1932 in Las Vegas, Nevada, Delia married Andrew C. “Bud” Walker, who took over the metal business. They lived at 110 North Willow Street. Delia was very active in civic philanthropic organizations. She was president of the Rebekah Lodge and of the Prescott Zonta Club, and belonged to the Methodisst Church and the Republican Women of Prescott.

Delia died on November 5, 1959, and was buried in the Odd Fellows Cemetery. Her mother, Dora Leach Russell, and her daughters, Dora Virginia Rosenblatt Heap, Pauline Gerhardt Rosenblatt Tovrea, Louise Caroline Rosenblatt Lynch and Bertha Louise Rosenblatt Scholey Boone are also commemorated in the Territorial Women's Memorial Rose Garden.
