We had the pleasure of working as volunteers with Darlene at the Osage County Historical Society. Darlene loved history, especially Native American and Texas Ranger history. She was a skilled researcher and took great pride in helping people find information about their families. On a personal note, Darlene was a gentle, sweet soul with an optimistic view of life. It was a pleasure to know her. She will be missed.

We are very sorry for your loss. Death at any age is tough, but it's harder when one is taken early in life. Your families are in our thoughts and prayers. RIP Darlene
