Darian Nordan Mabry, 90, of Cary, passed away peacefully on Monday, May 14, 2018, at Brighton Gardens of Raleigh.

She was born on January 16, 1928, in Raleigh, NC, to the late Ernest and Mamie Nordan. She was a long time member of Westover United Methodist Church in Raleigh, where she was actively involved.
