Darlene had a great love for helping others and her lifeís dream was to become a nurse. She achieved her goal by graduating from nursing school on September 5, 1980, and had a wonderful twenty year nursing career.

Darlene was a former member of Five Points Volunteer Fire and South Marshall Fire Departments. She also previously served as President of the Cornersville Lions Club. After joining the Ladies Auxillary of the American Legion, she accepted the role of President. She retired her post earlier this year. When she was not busy with work, family and volunteering, she spent any free time gardening, listening to 50ís music, playing skip-bo, solving crossword puzzles and reading. Her joy was found in her family, work, volunteering, and life.
