Darlene Joy Hance

01/08/1927 - 05/26/2014 Obituary
Darlene was born January 8,1927 in Bakersfield, California to Sennet and Nell Stiner. Darlene passed away on May 26, 2014 where she is no longer in pain and is peacefully with her Lord Jesus Christ.
Darlene was especially excited about being reunited with her mother, who passed away when Darlene was 12 years old, and her twin brother who was lost during World War II. Darlene and her twin brother were the youngest of six children, all of whom preceded her in death. Darlene was also preceded in death by her granddaughter Jordan Hance and son-in-law Larry Hall.
Darlene was a loving, caring, and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She is survived by her husband of 67 years, Bill Hance, as well as her two children, daughter Gwen Hall, and son Mark Hance and his wife Lisa, both of Bakersfield. She was blessed with six grandchildren, Christie Clayton, Jacob Hall, Jordan Hance, Erin Hudson, Jamie Hall, Lindsay McDuffie, and nine great-grandchildren all of whom were lucky enough to experience her tremendous love. Whether it was during Holiday gatherings and birthdays, or simply a grandchild's sick day from school was spent at her home. Darlene's loving heart and caring nature will truly be missed by all that knew her.
A private graveside service was held for family Tuesday, June 3, 2014 at Greenlawn Cemetery 3700 River Blvd. Bakersfield, CA 93305.
