  1. Very sad news. Darlene was my next-door neighbor growing up. She was the oldest of the neighborhood kids and we all idolized her. Spent countless hours playing jacks, jumprope, red light-green light, and croquet, and she was good at everything! She lived in the same house after we had left but my mother was still there. Darlene then took on the role of wonderful next-door neighbor for my mother. A sweet soul who will be greatly missed.

  2. I first met Darlene and George in the 1970’s. They were both really nice people with a great sense of humor. Now they are together again. My sympathy to Matt and Susan and family and friends.

  3. Darlene and I have been friends since our days at NHS. We travelled to Europe together and spent time visiting as couples in Manchester and when they came to TX. Many happy memories. She is now resting and healed on the Other Side of Glory!

  4. I was very fond of Darlene. We spent several memorable weekends together at United Methodist Women events. My sympathy to the family.
