Darlene was retired from General Motors (Delphi). She was baptized in The Church of Christ many years ago. She was able to attend services a few times in recent years until her health no longer permitted. Darlene is best known to many for her cooking and her happy personality. Once a friend always a friend was her way of life. She would always give free heartedly to anyone in need. She truly loved thy neighbor. Darlene played an active role in her grandchildren's lives. They describe her as "The Best Grandma Ever"! Her friends and family will miss her phone calls, her laughter and her "Macaroni and Cheese". The family would like to thank the Kobacker House for their loving care and support. At Darlene's request, a private family service will be held at a later date.
