GRAY, Darlene Ann
July 22, 1957 – September 17, 2013
Darlene Ann Gray passed away on September 22, 2013 at Grace Hospice at the age of 56 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was born on July 22, 1957 in Regina, the middle daughter of Ida and Maynard Gray. Darlene was predeceased by her mother Ida in 1993. She is survived by her husband Alvin Huber, companion little Guido, Father Maynard Gray, sisters Dorothy (Ross) Beal, Donna Lee (Emmet) Boyle, brothers Don Gray, David (Pam) Gray, Mother–in-Law Orpha Huber, brothers-in-law Glen Huber, Randy (Donna Frank) Huber, numerous nieces, nephews, in-laws and friends. Darlene spent many years in the Human Resources field, employed at various companies and later with her own consulting business. She was very proud of her Diploma in Adult Education she received from St Francis Xavier University in 2002, and her Canadian Human Resources Professional (CHRP) certification. After moving to Whitehorse in 2003 Darlene found her true passion in painting and pursued that passion through acrylic painting and photography until she could no longer do either. After contracting Ovarian Cancer in 2007 Darlene also put her passion into Ovarian Cancer treatment and support for women diagnosed with Gynecological Cancers. Her never ending commitment to providing better support and treatment often put her at odds with administrators, government officials and other cancer organizations. Only the diagnosis of Brain Cancer stopped her from continuing with this passion. Darlene found great comfort in her weekly meditation circle where she shared her own wisdom and compassion with great joy. Darlene continues her compassion for people even through death by donating her body to the University of Saskatchewan, College of Medicine for research and study. The family would like to extend their gratitude to all the Doctors, Nurses and staff at the Regina Cancer Clinic, Palliative Care Unit, Regina Wascana Grace Hospice, the Community Clinic and all the friends and family who supported us through Darlene's journey. In lieu of flowers memorial donations in memory of Darlene can be made to the Regina Community Clinic, the Pasqua Palliative Care Unit, or a charity of your choice. A celebration of Darlene's life will be held on September 28, 2:00 PM at the Sunset United Church, 177 Sunset Dr. Regina.
