I became acquainted with Darlene while working as coordinator of the Senior Center in Loup City. She was a care giver to many of my older friends. I really liked her and her clients did, too. She was always very busy but would help out at the Center if she had a moment of two to spare. I was so sorry to read of her death, she was still young and leaves a young family who will miss her I'm sure. Darlene was such a friendly person and treated all with respect and caring. Our Sympathy.
