Darlene was hard working throughout her life, working almost up to the age of 70. She was loved and admired at work, known as “Mama Bear” by her fellow co-workers. She loved sitting outside watching the ongoings in the neighbourhood and talking to various neighbours as they walked by. Her love of Hallmark Christmas movies and the Christmas season was well-known. She enjoyed knitting when she could, as well as working on puzzles.
Special thanks to the nurses and doctors at Milton District Hospital for their special care over the last little while, ensuring Darlene stayed comfortable and well taken care of. Thank you to her extended family and friends for the many visits, gifts, flowers and constant prayers.
Cremation has taken place. A private family service will be held at a later date. Condolences for the family and donations to Milton District Hospital may be arranged through Erb & Good Family Funeral Home at www.erbgood.com .
