I wouldn’t know where to start and not enough paper here for all my sweet memories with Auntie. We spent many summers together. When we were little she took us to a Santa’s Village, we spent camping trips all together Big Basin, Royal Pines. My Brother and I would go spend time during summer at their home and she was so much fun. Full of life🤗. I just can’t picture our life without her in it.
Auntie I loved you so much going to miss you😥 can’t believe your gone but we will see you again💕 Love you always.
My heart goes out to my Mom who is lost, loved her baby sister. And also to my Uncle Frank and Cousin Rayma and Mitch. And all the Family. I’m so sorry I love you all and your in my Prayers.
Love you always, Terri & Family

Aunt Darlene always had a mischievous twinkle in her eye. She definitely had a joy for life. There was a kindred spirit between us when I married her nephew, Jim and another Darlene was added to the family. She was well loved and will be greatly missed.

Our condolences to Uncle Frank, Rayma, Mitch and the rest of the family.

My mother grew up in Picher, Oklahoma. Her parents names were, Paul Skinner and Mildred Ganstine. My mother loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren and unfortunately we are spread across the United States and she did not get to see them often. Mom loved to write letters and send cards, and she just loved getting mail from her family. She had the prettiest handwriting and she was an amazing artist. Mom could also sing! Her voice was powerful and she loved to sing to us as kids. I will miss my crazy mom, she was quite the character, and she loved a good prank. Love you mom! Rayma Joy
