Josephine, Gerald and the family. So sorry about Dara's sudden and early demise. She was such a sweet person and I loved her smile and enjoyed being w/her at your wonderful Christmas Eve dinners. I know you all will miss her. The Brock's
So sorry to hear of Dara's passing & upset I was not able to attend her services.
Such a sweet classy lady...always a smile & always happy to talk about her travels. Loved working with her & such a tremendous loss!! Gone too soon but Heaven needed another good soul.
Dear Josephine, Deso and Families,
My heart goes out to you all for this great loss that you've suffered. Dara was such a sweetheart. And the kind words that everybody has to say about her tells it all. May you all gather peace from your beautiful memories of her.
God bless you all
Oh Dara, my friend what a nice woman I retired two years before you and missed you then but now I'm really going to miss you I loved talking to you and miss your warm hugs you were truly my good friend I Love You and God Bless You DARA
Dara you will be missed! I will always have the childhood memories that we shared, especially my 1 st time driving. You were very kind and generous and that I will always remember. May you rest in peace in Croatia. My condolences to your family.
Words can't begin to express how much I will miss you. I am so thankful to have had you as my friend.
Rest in peace, my Dara moja ruza.
My heart is broken. I can't believe you're gone, Dara. May your beautiful, kind soul rest in peace. I really hope that you knew how much you meant to EVERYONE in your life. There is truly nobody like you in this world. You have gone way too soon but it was such a blessing to have you in our lives. I love you more than you will ever know and I will NEVER forget you, my Darskee <3
What a beautiful picture of Dara! She was such a kind,loving,generous and considerate person and neighbor..the best I've ever known. I loved coming home and finding fresh baked cookies in my back porch. She was our "cookie fairy". She loved sharing her recipes and I loved eating whatever she made while listening to her stories of Croatia. After I moved, everytime I drove by 13th street, I thought of stopping by to say "hello". I am so sorry I didn't because I wish she could have known that I was thinking loving thougths of her as I passed by. God bless you sweet Dara...and send the fragrance of fresh baked cookies every once in awhile so we can smile and think of you. My heartfelt condolences to your family.
My Dearest Friend Dara, I cant believe you have left us so soon , I will cherish memories of all are road trips to Vegas. You have always been there for me the last 30 years. I will Never forget you!
Love you always
I have many fond memories of Dara as my first ever official neighbor on Averill ( very first time I moved out, and still only a stone throw away from my parents). Dara would ALWAYS cook during the day & often have something to share with me that afternoon or eve when I returned home on my doorstep OR a recipe to tell me about. I could always count on her to be sitting at the computer playing her slots at 1 or 2 a.m. when she arrived home from work or was getting ready to leave for work. She was so excited to share her tips & tricks that she even invited me to Pechanga for the day! She really looked out for me, always calling Gerald if we needed anything & we were always looking out for each other, greeting one another as we arrived and departed from her front window. She made it clear that my job was to tend to the front & back garden as she just didn't have a green thumb. She always spoke of family & friends in Croatia & I sure missed her when she was away! Thank you Dara for giVing me that extra sense of security & for being a more than wonderful neighbor. You will be missed by many.My deepest sympathies...
Dara came into our lives by chance, she was our neighbor. She embraced Kyle & I as her own and extended that love to our daughter, Daniela. There was no shortage of food, drinks & laughs when you entered her home. There are few people as kind, generous & full of life as her. My heart truly breaks for the loss of an exceptional women & friend, and extend my condolences to all her friends & family.
We enjoyed our opportunities to get to know Dara at the Galante Family's holiday events. She was full of cheer, and always had a happy smile...and lovely hair. We know you will miss her. Love, Art, Gwen, and Alan
Thought and prayers to the family. God Bless and may she be with God. She was a really nice person.
Dara was an amazing person. She always had a positive outlook. I will miss her and know that there is one more angel watching over me. My deepest sympathies to her family.
We all loved her. Such a thoughtful pleasant soul. From her kindness to her cooking, a very tasteful person. We will miss you greatly. Our prayers are with the family at this time of loss.
