Darlene Tackett, age 76, a lifelong resident of Toledo, recently moving to Delta, OH passed away Saturday, February 13, 2021 at home with family. She was born October 16, 1944 in Toledo to Murray and Eva (Thomas) Caywood.

Darlene graduated from DeVilbiss High School and attended the University of Toledo before getting married and staring a family of her own. She was a member of Wyldewood Baptist Church and a former member of the Red Hat Society Ladies Club for many years.

Darlene enjoyed crafting of all kinds. She was also known for decorating for every holiday. Darlene loved animals and spending time in nature at several local parks. Darlene loved spending time with family and friends, sharing laughter and memories over the years. She was a loving and caring person willing to do anything to help others. She always had a warm smile and an infectious laugh that will be remembered by all who knew her.

Darlene was a proud mother, grandmother and great-grandmother cherishing the time she was able to spend with family and special friends, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her strong faith and trust in God was what helped her find her strength each day to be a positive influence and best friend to her family.
