Delores Vickery in The Shining

By Stephen King

Delores Vickery

Delores Vickery is the "chambermaid" who first sees the ghost of the woman in 217. According to Halloran, she has a slight shine, but isn't a very nice person. She's mostly a plot device to broaden the discussion of shining and to confirm the existence of the ghost in 217.
