I had the pleasure getting to know Darlene when her daughter,Renee,and my daughter were in high school together. I enjoyed getting to know Darlene at various sporting events throughout those years, and will always remember her quiet spirit and cheerful smile.

Darlene was a beautiful soul with a smile that could light up a room! No matter what hand life dealt her, she always had a smile on her face. We spent many hours together working in the SD Ruritan's concession stand at baseball/softball games. I was blessed to have her friendship. My love and prayers are with her family.
