Darlene was born and raised in Gladmar, SK. She worked at a café in Gladmar where she met the love of her life, Robert. On October 29, 1960, Darlene and Robert were married and then settled down to raise their six children on a farm 3 miles south of Gladmar.
Darlene was a strong, proud, and loving woman. When you visited Darlene, she made you feel like the most important person in the world. You would never leave her home without having something to eat. She was a spirited woman, with a great sense of humor and she strived for harmony in her world. She was a great gardener; although we ate all the peas before she could make her famous homemade vegetable soup. She was also an amazing cook. Her cinnamon buns, rhubarb crisp, fudge, mustard, and Belgium waffles were like no others. Darlene loved to do puzzles, play solitaire, and enjoyed a competitive game of cards. She wasn't afraid of anything including new technology, she was quick to pick up and learn to use her iPad. Darlene was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She will be missed dearly by all who knew her.
The family would like to sincerely thank the Radville Home care staff for their compassion and loving care of Darlene.
