Darla Jean

Darla Jean Vander Horst, born on October 15, 1954, was called home to be with Jesus on April 21, 2013, surrounded by her family. She served as a Lucas County Corrections Officer. She was an amazing woman who showed unconditional love to whomever her path crossed. She will be dearly missed and her spirit will continue to touch all who knew her.

Her pride and joy was her family: husband, Leslie; sister, Laurie and Francisco Gabriel; children, Angela Cairl, Stevan and Erica, Brian and Shannon, Amber and Derrick Saylor; her grandchildren, Robb Cairl, Chaz, Koral, Hope Cairl, Delise, Andrew Saylor, Bentley Saylor, and Devin Curry; nephew, Joaquin Gabriel. She is now resting in heaven with her parents, Stevan and Dorothy Brocus; niece, Violetta Faith Gabriel; grandson, Chase Anthony Saylor, and lifelong friend, Sandra Kunich.

We will be celebrating her life on Thursday, April 25 at Mayfair Church, 5253 Bennett Road from 12:00-2:30 p.m. visitation, memorial service 2:30 p.m. immediately following Life Celebration at Fraternal Order of Police 255 Gradolph St. Toledo, OH 43612 until 8:00 p.m.
