They made their home in Morrison, OK where her husband, Bob was a rural route mail carrier for Morrison and Stillwater. Darlene was a homemaker, yet helped on the family farm, while raising four children. She was an excellent cook and loved to host family dinners. Her focus and true passion was taking care of her family first, before her other hobbies. She always had a smile on her face and couldnt wait to see her children, her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. She loved those babies! Darlene was an excellent seamstress, and also, loved to quilt and cross stitch. Her heart was kind and she had a sweet, Godly spirit about her. She was a very strong woman and fought hard the last two years. The lives she touched were many and she will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
