Darlene was an Executive Secretary for Paxton-Mitchell Co. for over 40 years. She loved her family, her grandchildren and was thrilled by the birth of her first great grandchild. Both Darlene & Harold were founding parishioners of 50+ years in Christ the King Parish where she was a Eucharistic Minister.
She enjoyed the many splendors of the United States through many years of camping and hiking and was an amazingly accomplished seamstress and the best chocolate chip cookie baker EVER!
Her faith and her family were the most important facets of her life and we will treasure her memory and legacy forever.
Special thanks to Trinity Village (Lyndsy Engel & staff), Papillion Manor and the CHI Hospice Team who so lovingly cared for our Mother.
