Darlene Adele Barnett Obituary
March 8, 1934- January 29, 2018
Darlene Adele Barnett, age 83, passed away peacefully at her home in Hemet, California, surrounded by family and loved ones.
Darlene was born in Los Angeles, a native Californian. She retired from the U.S. Postal Service after many years as a rural route carrier. She was proud of her ability to balance her commitments to both work and family.
Over 50 years ago, Darlene fell in love with, and married, a kind and handsome single father of three, Gene Barnett. She raised their seven children together in Winchester, California, while working a full-time job and keeping up with a busy family schedule. Darlene often said those days in Winchester were some of the happiest of her life. Most of all, she loved cooking for her family and took time to detail individual recipes each family member loved. She was an amazing storyteller and enjoyed recounting pivotal moments in her children's lives. The matriarch of a large and beautiful family, Darlene was a fun-loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
She is survived by her adoring husband Gene, and children: Sue, Tom, Larry, Doug, Annette, and Bill, along with 15 grandchildren, and 24 great-grandchildren. Her parents, Alice and Gene, her brother Earl, and her daughter Juanita preceded her in death. She has left her legacy of love and a strong work ethic imprinted upon her beloved family. She was dearly loved and will be sadly missed.
A memorial in her honor will be held at Inland Memorial Harford Chapel, Saturday, March 10, 2018 at 9 AM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in her memory, to her favorite charity, stjude.org
