Darlene had a nurturing soul and found solace in spending time with her family. Nothing brought her more joy than being surrounded by her children and grandchildren. Her loving presence lightened up any room she entered, and she had an uncanny ability to make everyone feel cherished and valued. Darlene's love knew no bounds.
