Darlene was direct, dedicated, and pioneering. She used these qualities daily throughout life, as a mother, as a grandmother, as a hairdresser and a loyal friend. She loved being a hairdresser even from her early years of styling the neighbors' hair as a teen for fifty cents a head and continued finding joy in discovering just the right style for each person throughout her life. Darlene loved sharing words of encouragement with those God put in her path.
