Mrs Rischling was Principal at Calvert when my children were there and we all liked and admired her. She was always wise and kind and helped us get our daughter into the Highly gifted program very early. Our sincere condolences to you , her family. We will always remember her fondly. May she Rest In Peace Marie- Louise Audi

What wonderful memories I have of my dear friend, Darlene. We traveled together to several National bridge tournaments and to many regional ones. She was such fun to be with and to partner with at the bridge table! She was smart, witty, thoughtful, generous, kind....all things good! She virtually restarted her life when she retired and moved to Omaha, investing herself in her new community as well as in her family. She was an amazing lady and I feel very blessed to have known her. Love and sympathy to all of the Steffensmeiers.

I´m so sorry for your loss - I loved Darlene and so did my dad, Max. When I was a young girl Darlene used to take me to plays at the omaha community playhouse - she was such a kind soul. Prayers for the repose of her soul and for strength and comfort for all of you who loved her so deeply. What a grand reception she must be receiving in heaven
