Darlene loved working at the local library helping to run their bookstore. She delighted in books and sharing them with her community. Her yard and house were her other delight; people would often stop to comment and praise her xeriscape design.
She is survived by her children Boyd Evan White, Brian Devon White and Lynda Michelle (Sean) Kelley. She was loved deeply by them and her best friend/honorary sister JoEllen (Ron) Williams.
The community, friends, caregivers and family who rallied around her during her last year of life are a testament to her inner shining light. She brought humor, love and gratefulness to every day and all who were around her celebrated that joy with her. The next time you see a maple leaf or visit Canada think of Darlene as she adored her home country and always loved going back.
In lieu of flowers please donate to St. Judes Children’s Hospital in her name as she was a donor throughout her life and was always pulled towards their cause.
