Darline was born in Las Animas, Colorado, and as a teenager moved to Southern California where she had and raised her family. She started her work career in 1956 at Hughes Aircraft as a Research Analyst and later owned Calico Blue Ribbon, a trophy and ribbon shop in Mira Loma, CA. After retiring, Darline could be found working for Goodwill Industries. She was known for being adventurous and spent a couple of years in Red Lodge, MT before settling in Seguin, TX in 1995.
She will be remembered for her wit, tenacious personality, fishing, amazing cooking and baking, love for books, passion for sewing, and her green thumb. Darline lived a full life and will never be forgotten by those who loved her.
A private family celebration will take place at a later date.
