Darlene was special lady with a heart as big as can be. I first met Darlene at a women's weekly business network meeting around 2011 or 2012. She was a wedding minister and I had an established travel agency as well as a new thermal imaging business. We bounced ideas off each other and supported one another. We attended events, played Bunko and as I got to know her , I got to experience her big heart, her big smile and her amazing attitude about life. I got to help her plan and take a trip with her husband and grandson to Germany. She wrote a book about angels and gave several of us a copy. That was her nature-always giving. So many memories....
But she was truely an angel her herself, now keeping watch over us. I will miss seeing her earthly human self.

My Mom had a rare ability...She could instantly make friends with almost anyone. I recall holding her hand as my Mom was being rolled out of the operating room. A person pulled me aside and pressed a piece of paper into my hand explaining that she was the Anesthesiologist (M.D.) who was on duty during my Mom's surgery. She told me that she and my Mom talked briefly just prior to her surgery and urged me "Please give your Mother my phone number, she will likely not recall the conversation we had prior to her surgery". Well anyway, that is the kind of impression that she was able to make upon people while she was here on earth, I can only speculate about the positive impact she is now having on peoples lives now that she is an Angel in Heaven...

Nearly everyday since I live in this house as I would walk by the living room right where Darlene
would sit on her chair. I would hear her talking to someone on the phone and I would notice that
she would saying a prayer with someone together or trying to make someone feel better about
something was happening in their lives that was depressing them. she always tried her best to
make people upbeat to let them know there was hope no matter what.
Many times at the end of the day when I was going to bed ,she would say pray to this person
don't forget even though I never knew most of these people were. That was Darlene always
trying to make people feel better.
Well I guess the Lord ran short of Angels, so he recalled her back to
duty. I lost my wife and he got his Angel back.

I only met Darlene a few times, but each time was always a pleasant visit. She was such an easy person to talk to, and was always full of complements.
We are all sorry for your loss.
Scott, Dorothy, Faith, Emily and Josh.

Keith, Gloria, and Zackery, you're in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. Darlene was a lovely woman. I loved hearing about her special angels and her stories about weddings that she officiated. We will hold the time we spent together during Easter and our Christmas light hay ride together in our memories always. With love, Trisa, Shawn, Hannah and Hailey.

When Keith and Gloria became engaged I finally met Darlene. Because we lived in different parts of the country, I was not able to spend as much time with her as I would have liked. But one didn't need to be around Darlene for very long to know what a lovely and loving woman and mother she was. I always thought that she sort of "sparkled" when I'd see her; she was just as beautiful outside as she was inside. It was an honor to know her and she will be missed by her family and friends. May God give them the peace that passes all understanding as they mourn her loss. Love, Marilynn Miller
