Darlene was a wonderful person. She was a good friend of my mother, Deloris, who passed away January 8, 2021. I remember all the stories my Mom told of fun times she and Darlene had when growing up together. I hope they have now reunited in Heaven to continue their fun. My deepest condolences to your family during this difficult time.

Bob and family, We wish God’s peace and comfort for you. Darlene was a special lady and sharing friendship with you, Bob, and Darlene along with Carol, Rodney and Jan over coffee on Sunday mornings after the 8:00 church service was always so much fun. We shared laughter and just quality time together. Darlene will be missed. ❤️
