Grow, Darla Jean

February 13, 1948 - July 8, 2021

Age 73 of Lincoln. Darla was most proud of her work for Kelly Services Staffing Company for a number of years, climbing her way up to manager of both the Omaha and Lincoln branches. She was a fierce and professional force in the temp staffing industry for a number of years, both by providing would-be applicants the tools and skills necessary to learn to better their careers, and by mentoring her fellow employees in their pursuits in the field of Human Resources and Development. Her retirement consisted of enjoying travels with her husband, TJ, on their adventures to different wine regions from Napa to Bordeaux, and coming home to good friends, good family, and the company of a cat or two.

Born February 13, 1948, in Jefferson, IA to Eldon "Pink" and Esther (Noack) Grow. Family members include her son, Garrett Matuska, Lincoln; sister, Vickie (Jim) Striegel, Delta, IA; 2 nieces; and 2 nephews. Preceded in death by her parents; and husband, Tom "T.J." Johnson.

A Private Family Service will be held at a later date. Memorials may be given to the American Cancer Society.

I apologize if this is not the Darla Grow I knew in 1967-1968. I attended Patricia Stevens College in Omaha and had a roommate named Darla Grow. I moved away a couple of years after we graduated and didn't keep in touch with anyone from my class. I want to express my condolences to her family. We had a lot of fun the year we attended Patricia Stevens and I remembered the name. Kay (Godfrey) Cruise
