Darleen loved to listen to music, dance, play Bingo, spend time in her garden, and she really enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She would always lend a helping hand and she had a special way of touching everyone’s heart. She was loved by many and will be missed dearly.

Darleen was my dearest friend. We laughed and talked for hours. Had great fun working in the garden and decorating. We saw each other every day. Words cannot express my deep sorrow. I will miss her always but our memories will keep me consoled. My heartfelt sympathy to Darleen’s family – she loved you all deeply. Prayers and love.
