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
