She enjoyed supporting her children and watching them play sports and being the loudest one in the crowd. She was a mother figure to many more who would be at the house, and was always willing to take them in under her wing. She enjoyed music and dancing when she could and enjoyed planting her flower gardens and had a fond admiration for birds. The thing she loved the most was her lifelong partner and husband Rockie, along with her children and grandchildren. Being a Nana was her biggest pride. Two of Darlene’s favorite pastimes were jigsaw puzzles and giving the staff at the Wellsville Manor Care Center a hard time.
