Pleasant memories of Darlene as a 6th grade classmate at East Spring Street School and as a part of the NAHS class of 1964. To Darlene's children and grandchildren--you would have enjoyed the elementary school playground games if you were fortunate enough to be chosen on her team!
Eternity's heartbeat quickened when Darlene stepped into Forever! God's blessings and peace to all family and friends.

Some of my earliest memories in my life are staying overnight with Grandma Hazel when she lived on Spring St in New Albany IN. Cousin Darlene was living there also while attending NAHS. I will always remember Dar studying for hours at her small desk in the front room of the shotgun house. She instilled in me the importance of education at my early age. Dar and Mike had just started dating and occasionally they would let me tag along. It it so rare that a couple can find their true soul mates so young. I am sure they are together with their UofL gear, maybe a few beloved animals and enjoying seeing all of our loved ones that also left us too early. We will all miss you forever.......or at least until we get to see you once more.

One of my most favorite memories was our first Derby where we were on the infield and it was pouring rain and the tunnel we had to exit through flooded. Mrs. Wagner was laughing so hard saying the tunnel is flooded, the tunnel is flooded. We laughed for hours about that. We miss you already Mrs. Wagner!
